Boston's Olympics Bid Could Come To A Vote
Bostonians opposed to the city's 2024 Olympics bid want the question put to voters, and Mayor Martin Walsh says he will "not stand in the way."By Jay Strubberg | January 20, 2015
A large minority of Boston residents aren't too thrilled the city won the U.S. bid for the 2024 Summer Olympic Games. And their voices may be heard.
Tuesday, Boston Mayor Martin Walsh said he will "not stand in the way" of a public vote that could potentially kill the city's chances of hosting the Games.
This is a change, of course, for Walsh. When the city won the U.S. bid Jan. 9, he said there would be "no public referendum." Though he most likely couldn't stop it from happening if he wanted to.
