An Interesting Editorial

Recently, the Eagle Tribune, Gloucester Times, Salem Evening News, and the Newburyport Daily News published an editorial regarding a bill I filed that would require legislative approval prior to the expenditure of public funds to host the Olympics in Boston in 2024. The bill, SD1806, would infuse transparency and accountability within the Olympic bid process. Furthermore, it would assist in preventing public funds from being used inappropriately.

It’s a commonsense bill that if passed, would ensure the legislature remains a partner in the bid process.
