Governor meets with chairman of Lincoln Park parent company
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

(Providence-AP) -- The chairman of Wembley p-l-c says his company still wants to expand Lincoln Park�despite a recent indictment naming top company officials.

Claes Hultman met with Governor Carcieri for nearly two hours this morning.

They agreed to increased state supervision of Lincoln Park�s daily activities.

The 22-count indictment handed up earlier this month names Daniel Bucci, the park�s chief executive officer, and Nigel Potter, who was a top executive with Wembley, the park�s parent.

Prosecutors say the pair was involved in a scheme to offer bribes in exchange for more slot machines.

The governor has said he will not discuss a long-term contract for V-L-T operations until the indictment is resolved.

Hultman said Wembley�s board must still decide whether to expand the park. He said it�s still the company�s (quote) �fundamental desire� to add nearly 800 new video lottery machines.
