IOC TELLS ACOG TO "FORCE" CITY TO CHANGE MARKETING
Published September 21, 1995
IOC Chair Richard Pound has given ACOG President Billy Payne "less than a week to force city officials to back off a plan" to sell signs and vending licenses to rivals of Olympic sponsors, according to the ATLANTA CONSTITUTION. Pound: "Our instruction to Billy is this is a problem which has come up on his watch and he needs to get it solved." Pound added that "it is not something the IOC would want to be forced to take action on." Payne said he has spoken with Atlanta Mayor Bill Campbell and they will "personally work it out if necessary" (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 9/21).
