Dear Member of the
International Olympic Committee:
It's been a VERY rough few days for Mayor Daley. He appeared at a public meeting on our 2010 budget last night on the City's South Side. Many angry citizens demanded to know why essential city service continue to be cut back while he pursues his dream of bringing the 2016 Olympics to Chicago.
Here are just a few of the stories covering his troubled administration.
Here's a gem from our public radio station's overage of the hearing. "The
mayor didn't answer that - or most - questions directly, instead asking
his staff to meet people individually. A handful of speakers brought up
the city's 2016 Olympic bid - almost all, like Judith Rodgers, opposed
to it. RODGERS: If you can get that money together for a stupid
Olympics, you can take that money and put more police on the street."
