Governor Charlie Baker would vote yes on a 2024 Olympics ballot question that included taxpayer funding for infrastructure investments, he told Jim Braude and Margery Eagan on Boston Public Radio.
"I'm with the Senate President and the House Speaker on this, which is more than happy to do what we need to do to support the thing in terms of infrastructure," Baker said.
"I think of that as a legacy investment that everybody benefits from. I don't want taxpayer money to be used to fund, quote, stuff that isn't, that the rest of the Commonwealth, whose paying the bill on that, would benefit from," he continued.
When asked if he would vote for a ballot question with that language in it, Baker confirmed that he would.
Previously, the Governor made clear he felt that a proposed ballot question should address the question of funding the Boston 2024 Games.
