A statement from Mayor Marty Walsh re: Boston 2024

After much public pressure from City Councilor Tito Jackson, Mayor Walsh finally announced on Wednesday evening that Boston 2024 should provide the original bid in its entirety, for public review.  Our question is, does Boston 2024 release it before the the Fox 25 debate between No Boston 2024 and Boston 2024?  The debate will air on Thursday night live at 8pm.  Should be a good one.  Below is the statement for the mayor himself 

“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.”
