Private group seeks to bring Olympics to Boston in 2024
A private group, the Boston Olympic Exploratory Committee, wants to bring the 2024 Summer Games to Boston, reports the Boston Globe:
Two weeks ago, the United States Olympic Committee solicited bids from Boston and 34 other municipalities. The positive report from the Monday meeting at City Hall is the earliest indication the city may give the idea real consideration.
The group hopes to gain Mayor Thomas M. Menino's approval soon, and it has already started its marketing campaign including reserving the Internet domain, www.boston-2024.org, setting up a Twitter feed, and creating a Facebook page.
