Meanwhile, Rep. Geoff Diehl (R-Whitman) said that not one of the people involved with Boston 2024 are known for being frugal with taxpayer money. "I fear the taxpayers are going to be left with a big bill," said Diehl. He challenged Boston 2024 to not spend more than $250,000 on the ballot question.
