This statement just in from Mayor Walsh:
The question of releasing the original bid documents has become an unnecessary distraction in what should be a constructive civil discourse about the future of the City of Boston. It's important that we continue our focus on building a concrete and sound plan that is shaped by community input and brings long-term benefits to the City of Boston and its residents. As a result, I asked Boston 2024 to provide the original bid, in its entirety, for public review. Both Boston 2024 and the United States Olympic Committee fully support the release of these documents in order to maintain an open and transparent process.
The chapters, from Boston 2024's original bid to the US Olympic Committee, involve the financing and political support for the proposed 2024 games.
And when the mayor talks, Boston 2024 listens, unlike when mere city councilors talk.
