Marty Walsh on Foreign Policy

 

 


Refused to put up tax dollars for Olympics cost overruns

Boston's mayor delivered a harsh blow to the city's effort to host the 2024 Olympics when he declared that he wouldn't sign any document until he's assured the taxpayers won't have to foot the bill. "I will not sign a document that puts one dollar of taxpayers' money on the line for one penny of overruns on the Olympics," he said.
