At a press conference held Thursday afternoon at the Connecticut Capitol, the Mashantucket Pequots and the Mohegans, Connecticut’s two sovereign tribal nations, joined forces to save jobs in the State by creating a new gaming facility to be built north of Hartford. I am delighted to announce that Pearce Real Estate has been selected by MM4CT Venture, their joint enterprise, to administer the Request for Proposals from towns and municipalities that are interested in being home to the new facility. We are honored to be part of their important efforts to save and grow jobs here, and for citing Pearce as a woman-owned business with outstanding credentials, superb knowledge and experience in the Connecticut landscape, and a stellar reputation. Importantly, they appreciate that we are a Connecticut company, that we all live and spend our money here, and have a vested interest in the economic health of our State.
Thanks to Chris Nolan, Carl Russell, Virginia Vinci and Lyndsay Cuomo for working with me to respond to MM4CT’s request for a proposal in such a quick, positive and professional way.
Additional details about timing and the process moving forward will be released in the coming weeks.
