The Olympics it seems to me and many people is a massive crony works program. Good to see the mayor of Boston pull the plug before his residents find themselves on the hook for hundreds of millions of dollars. (More?)
In fairness Athens hosted the Olympics recently and look at it now.
On Monday, Walsh called a press conference at which he stated, “This is a commitment that I cannot make without assurances that Boston and its residents will be protected. We have met every demand and every challenge, but I cannot commit to putting the taxpayers at risk. If committing to singing a guarantee today is what’s required to move forward, then Boston is no longer pursuing the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.”
