Seven years after No Games Chicago did our work (with no support from any major civic organization, university or community group) the 2016 Olympics have begun. Some reporters have contacted us to get our perspective on the “Battle for the Bid” and the Olympic Games. Here is an interview from Chicago News.
Wow! We did it. Or, I should say – 200 of you did it. Because that’s how many people chipped in to our crowdfunding campaign. The book “Chicago Is Not Broke. Funding the City We Deserve” is now available for purchase! Click here to order. Books ship out every few days so your wait will be brief.
You can get a discount if you order five copies or more. We’d LOVE to visit your organization, school or religious institution to do a presentation around the book and its ideas. Use the form below to contact us.
Tom was on “Chicago Newsroom” with Ken Davis on April 7, 2016 to talk civics, TIFs and explain why it was great to NOT get the 2016 Olympics and how Chicago is NOT broke. (46 minutes)
The next stage in the evolution of the TIF Illumination Project is here! Help us raise funds to publish “Chicago Is Not Broke. Funding the City We Deserve.” We’ve got the authors all lined up. Will you pitch in so we can publish 5,000 copies?
