Casino vendors flock to Salem


“Obviously, we would love to ... open a branch,” said Elma Mandzo, branch manager of the People’s United Bank on Canal Street in Salem.

Chip Tuttle, chief operating officer of Suffolk Downs and a Salem resident, brought the crowd up to date on the timeline for a new casino.

They hope for referendum votes Nov. 5 in Revere and East Boston and expect a decision on the casino licenses next spring.

With months to go before an area casino becomes a reality, there is a lot of time for speculating and dreaming.

George Carey, the owner of Finz restaurant on Pickering Wharf in Salem, said he would love to open a restaurant at the new casino.

“They’re close to the water; we’re a good North Shore vendor,” he said. “It would be a sure bet.”
