BALTIMORE AND DC COMBINE FORCES FOR 2012 OLYMPIC BID
Published June 30, 1998
Washington, DC, and Baltimore will make a joint bid for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games and organizers are set to announce the effort today in hope of resolving "a bitter behind-the-scenes battle over the right to lead an effort that could bring billions of dollars to the region," according to Wilson & Heath of the WASHINGTON POST. DC Mayor Marion Barry and Baltimore Mayor Kurt Schmoke each will appoint as many as five board members to join a dozen execs from some of the region's largest companies, including Mobil, Bell Atlantic and NationsBank, on a new consolidated organizing committee. Elizabeth Ganzi, Washington's Olympic exploratory committee Chair was kept off the new board, and she threatened yesterday to file suit against the combined committee (WASHINGTON POST, 6/30). There are eight other bids for the USOC's 2012 nomination (Baltimore SUN, 6/30).
