McAuliffe on the launch of Capital Region’s 2024 Olympic bid

newspaperGovernor McAuliffe issued the following statement voicing his support for the National Capital Region’ bid for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic games:

“I’m excited to join with leaders from across the region to support the Capital Region’s bid for the 2024 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games. My top priority as Governor is to spur economic growth and build a new Virginia economy centered on innovation, and job creation. Hosting the 2024 Olympics can both create jobs and provide a lasting legacy in sport, tourism, and culture that will benefit our region in the long-term. Virginia is a critical part of the vibrant, diverse Capital Region and the Olympics will highlight the Commonwealth’s strength on the world stage. I look forward to working with Governor O’Malley and Mayor Gray to bring the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic games to the National Capital Region.”
