Barcelona City Council Politician Announces He Will Not Vote For Winter Olympic Bid

Barcelona City Council Popular Municipal Group President Alberto Fernandez announced that he "will not support a Barcelona-Pyrenees 2022 Winter Olympic bid," according to the EFE. Fernandez indicated "he will abstain when asked to vote on the bid." Fernandez "has shown that the Olympic candidacy would plan investments into Barcelona's railway infrastructure that would delay the city's priorities." Barcelona Mayor Xavier Trias said, "We will make a bid to host the Winter Olympics." Trias, however, pointed out that it has not been decided whether the city will present a candidacy in '22 or '26 (EFE, 10/9).
