We put on a good Olympic show, but it’s over—let it go



Re: “Richmond Olympic museum to include an outdoor cauldron,” Richmond Review, Wednesday, Jan. 22.

Besides wasting hundreds of thousands of dollars on sister cities, Richmond city council have found yet another way to waste taxpayers money by spending $6 million building a Olympic Museum to keep the  legacy alive?

I have to agree Richmond put on a pretty good show with lots of excitement during our winter Olympic, but it over so let it go. Apparently the few places who has such an museum have very few visitors .

The people I have talked to in our neighborhood were not interested in visiting such a venture. Such an expenditure must call for a plebiscite.
