Cambridge studies gambling


CAMBRIDGE -- With a casino company already interested in this Eastern Shore city, the mayor convened a task force yesterday to study the pros and cons of legalized gambling.

Mayor David J. Wooten Jr. said he is "adamantly opposed" to casinos, but wants to hear from a broad cross-section of city residents. "I see [casinos] as something that could alter the landscape of the city and county for a generation," he said. "I want to have as many facts as we can."

Officials of Harveys Casino Resorts have told Cambridge officials they want to build a dockside casino and hotel on the Choptank River off U.S. 50.
