Chicago Says "No Thanks" to the 2016 Olympics
Petition Background (Preamble):
We can not afford to sink billions into the Olympic games. The London games of 2012 are already $6 billion (pounds) over budget. If Chicago wants to claim and hold the title of "world class city," let's find more sensible and sustainable ways to get there.
We do not have the finances or leadership in place necessary to sustain such a costly and risky venture. Please pick another city to host the 2016 games.
