  • ACOG GOVERNMENT LIAISON HIRED BY SLOC TO FILL SIMILAR ROLE

         The Salt Lake Organizing Committee for the 2002 Winter
    Olympics has hired Cynthia Gillespie as SLOC VP/Federal
    Government Relations.  Gillespie will work out of Washington DC,
    and her "primary role" will be serving as the SLOC's liaison to
    the Congressional and Executive branches of the federal
    government.  Gillespie was ACOG's Deputy Dir Federal/State
    Government Relations and later became ACOG's Dir Federal
    Relations, overseeing an annual budget of more than $1.7M.
    (SLOC).  In Utah, Lisa Riley Roche of the DESERT NEWS notes SLOC
    organizers originally planned on getting $30M in federal
    assistance, all for security, but federal money "will almost
    certainly increase" because of the Centennial Olympic Park
    bombing in Atlanta. Federal funds are also earmarked for a light-
    rail system and other transportation projects (DESERT NEWS,
    11/3).
