Well, you didn’t bite with electing my friend David D’Arcangelo as Secretary of State and now we have another 2,000 years of Galvin.
Let’s give you all another chance.
Let’s start a movement to welcome the Olympics to Massachusetts and hold the games in…..SPRINGFIELD!!!
Every argument about jobs, infrastructure, and positive commerce made about siting a casino there applies to the Olympics in spades. There are some college facilities there now, but future facilities can be added as expansions to the public college system there, a justification for the tax dollars we are going to get hosed for anyway.
By taking the construction out of Suffolk County, it will be exponentially cheaper. The long hoped-for IT and internet capacity for western MA can finally be constructed, with the profits from the games to off-set the costs of doing so.
Instead of a casino, let’s build an Olympic Village instead. We could even use the Lake Placid model and relieve crowding in the corrections system as the courts have demanded.
The location will have an appeal for nearby New Yorkers, and existing public transport can be upgraded while vehicular transportation can also be accommodated.
Viva Olympics! Springfield – 2024!
