(NECN/AP) - Las Vegas Gambling Mogul Steve Wynn has met with Everett Mayor Carlo DeMaria to discuss developing a casino in that city.

Wynn says it's still early, so there's no formal proposal, but he'd like to move ahead if residents in the Boston suburb are open to the idea.

Wynn wanted to open a casino in Foxborough, but said he abandoned that idea amid "divided opinions" in town on that project.

Reverend Richard McGowan, a Boston college professor in Management and Economics and an expert on casino gambling, joined "The Morning Show" to weigh in on the latest proposal.

Watch the attached video for the entire conversation.
