WASHMORE GAMES? DC & BALTIMORE TO COMBINE 2012 OLYMPIC BID
Published December 4, 1997
Washington, DC and Baltimore corporate leaders "overwhelmingly agreed" yesterday that the two cities should join forces in a "unified bid" for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, according to Charles Babington of the WASHINGTON POST. Area business execs agreed that a combined bid had a better chance of securing the games than would the separate efforts launched earlier by each city. A nine-member "business steering-committee" was named to pursue details of combining the two bids (WASHINGTON POST, 12/4). In Baltimore, Jon Morgan reports that last night's group "left to an ad hock steering committee the difficult decisions about how to integrate the sometimes-antagonistic bidders." Morgan adds that chief among the items the new committee must settle includes what to call the Games (SUN, 12/4).
