The better question would be did Gov Patrick make any promise to the Wampanoag Tribe over the
submerged ancestral burying grounds in Nantucket Sound. Gov Patrick wants the 130 wind turbine project to go forward in Nantucket Sound.

Gov Patrick says plenty for example : On October 20, 2010 in a re-election speech he said the South Terminal in New Bedford was going to be a major wind-turbine port. The cost of the project was expected to cost taxpayers 35 million then a year later it was 65 million .Today the EPA is about to announce the clean up needed to even start the project.

The next question would be would the building of a casino in New Bedford conflict with Gov Patricks plans of building a twenty acre ocean wind turbine port right next door to the proposed ocean wind turbine port ? Could both projects be built at the same time ? Does one project take precedence over the other ?
