Conn. Seniors Group Makes Peace with Foxwoods

Foxwoods

DERBY, Conn. (AP) — A senior citizens center in Derby has ended a boycott against Foxwoods Resort Casino.

The center halted trips to the eastern Connecticut casino last year after some seniors took offense at published comments by Chief Executive Officer Scott Butera.

He said he was misquoted and his comments were taken out of context when the news story referred to seniors not contributing to Foxwoods’ profits.

The New Haven Register reports that Butera accepted an invitation from the executive director of the Derby senior citizens’ center to pay a visit. Butera participated in a question-and-answer session with about 50 members and spoke with members individually.

Foxwoods, to help boost its relationship with senior citizens, developed a program exclusively for those 60 and older.
