Boston mayor promises not to overspend for 2024 Olympics

Washington: A day after United States Olympic Committee selected Boston to bid for the 2024 summer Olympic Games, Mayor Martin Walsh promised that the city will try to avoid overspending.

"I promise this will be the most open, transparent and inclusive process in Olympic history. I also promise that I will never leave Boston with a large price tag of an unpaid debt," Walsh said in a press conference in Boston Friday, reports Xinhua.

"We are not going to be using tax payers' money to be building venues," he added.

The US' last two attempts to bid for the Games both failed, with New York for 2012 and Chicago for 2016 Games. 

The last time the US staged the summer Olympics was in 1996 in Atlanta and Salt Lake City hosted the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.
