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.
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)
