Last week, the head of the committee leading Boston's bid to land the 2024 Summer Olympic Games told business leaders in Worcester that its goal is to avoid using state or local taxpayer money to help pay an estimated $9.1 billion to prepare for and host the games. But an opposition group, No Boston Olympics, which also presented to business leaders last week, said public funding may be unavoidable, and that may squeeze out money for other important projects that need public funding. While the Olympics can bring widely recognized benefits, it also carries the potential liability of significant expense overruns. So, where do you stand on public money from the state for the Olympics? Please vote and comment.
If Boston were to win the bid for the 2024 Summer Olympic Games and need public money to help pay for them, should the state government be obligated to help?
