CHICAGO 2008? SECOND CITY ORGANIZERS TALK OF POSSIBLE BID
Published August 29, 1995
Chicago officials, upbeat about revenue from the World Cup and next year's Democratic National Convention, "may be preparing to stalk" the Summer Games. Greg Hinz writes in the current issue of CHICAGO magazine that William Daley, brother of Mayor Richard Daley and co-chair of "Chicago '96," predicts that "talk could turn more serious" regarding a bid for the Games. Lesile Fox, Exec Dir of "Chicago '96," the city's organizing committee for next year's convention, says Chicago has most of the facilities it would need for a Summer Games, and that a bid "is something to consider long-term." Also in the works -- a possible Chicago bid for the Goodwill Games, NCAA Men's Final Four and 2000 Republican National Convention (CHICAGO, 9/95 issue).
