If Your Alderman Is NOT On This List…

As reported online by the Chicago Tribune:

Earlier this week, Ald. Manuel Flores (1st) introduced an ordinance to cap the city’s liability for 2016 Olympics losses at $500 million.

It was a response to Daley’s meeting with IOC officials in Switzerland on June 17. Afterward, he told the Tribune he would sign a host city contract putting the burden for all losses on Chicago. The comments led to a firestorm of criticism back home and damage control efforts by City Hall and the city’s Olympics bid leaders.

So far, however, just 11 other aldermen in the 50-member council have signed on as co-sponsors.

A spokeswoman for Flores listed the co-sponsors. Here they are:

* Robert Fioretti (2nd)
* Leslie Hairston (5th)
* Freddrenna Lyle (6th)
* Sandi Jackson (7th)
*Willie Cochran (20th)
* Ricardo Munoz (22nd)
* Sharon Denise Dixon (24th)
* Scott Waguespack (32nd)
* Richard Mell (33rd)
* Eugene Schulter (47th)
* Joe Moore (49th)
