The old pros at No Games Chicago have been helping the community organizers at NOlympicsLA prepare for their launch. They are out of the gate strong and connected to a host of vital community organizations! We wish them good luck in taking on the city killer aka as the modern Olympic Games.
From WBEZ-FM Chicago Public Radio’s Worldview program from July 19, 2016 (35 minutes):
Tom Tresser was asked to weigh in on the ongoing costs of the 2016 Olympic bid. Mayor Daley demolished the Michael Reese Hospital site in 2009 in an effort to impress the IOC. That will end up costing us as much as $150 million!
Every time you hear the word World Cup think “Olympics” and every time you hear “FIFA” think International Olympic Committee!
