After a controversial go of it, looks like the City of Boston has decided to pull the plug on Grand Prix Boston.  So that’s that!
See press release below:
BOSTON – Friday, April 29, 2016 – Below is a statement from Patrick Brophy, Chief of Operations for the City of Boston:
“The City of Boston will always be open to opportunities that will positively showcase our city, however as we continued to work with Boston Grand Prix they were unwilling or unable to meet the necessary requirements to hold an event of this size. The Mayor feels strongly in protecting the taxpayers and limiting the impact to residents, and we are not shy that we held them to very high standards.”

    Boston, South Boston especially, has been bullied into accepting the rule of outsiders for quite some time. For the last twenty years, the bullying mostly came from City Hall. It looks as if people have decided they won’t put up with another twenty years of it. I’m proud to live in a neighborhood that stood up to this high cash cabal– and make no mistake, the opposition to this money-grab was led by longtime residents of our neighborhood.
    The next money-grab that the homeowners of this neighborhood need to prepare for is to spread the word to vote against the proposed Community Preservation Act that will not protect the community. It is just a way to raise your taxes so they can play a shell game with the city budget and use your tax money to fund their cash-grabbing agenda. More on this later.
    Note to CIS: You should be letting the readers know about this proposal to raise our taxes on our property.
