Casinos Cause Controversy within Patrick Administration
(2007-10-18)
(wfcr) - Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick is doing some damage control after his casino plan was criticized by state Treasurer Tim Cahill. Patrick paid an unannounced visit to Cahill's office Wednesday after reading Cahill's comments in the Boston Herald that he thought the Governor was being secretive about his newly released casino bill. The treasurer, who supports casino development in the state, was also upset because he wasn't notified he would be on a casino oversight board. He says that could conflict with his work overseeing the state lottery.

Cahill didn't disclose specifics of his discussion with the governor, but says the pair agreed to communicate more frequently.
