Corea said the results also tell the Bid Corp. that they are on the right track as far as sharing information with the public.

"It is confirming what we have been saying for the past two years, that the benefits and legacies of bidding is what people want to hear about," said Corea.

"They want to hear about the benefits and what is in it for the community as a legacy.

"People want to hear more than about the event itself. They want to hear what happens after and so I think by giving the economic information, the recent economic study and the information that came out of Salt Lake City, the reasons for supporting or not supporting seem to be on the economic side of it.

"That is certainly understandable as it is a large undertaking for any community."
