Join No Games and IVI-IPO – “No Blank Check!”

IVI-IPOThe Independent Voters of Illinois-Indenpdent Precinct Organization (IVI-IPO) has joined No Games Chicago in opposing Chicago’s bid for the 2016 Olympics. From their email newsletter:

The recent revelation that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) host city contract will require the City of Chicago to be liable for all cost overruns puts city residents in a precarious position, especially when the City is facing severe budget shortfalls.

The Olympics are a wonderful institution, but the City’s record of extreme cost overruns on large projects makes this a bad deal for Chicago residents.

Since 1944, IVI-IPO has fought for an idealistic vision of open and honest government. The organization’s primary tools are voter’s registration, voter information and candidate endorsement. IVI-IPO also lobbies on behalf of governmental reforms designed to open the system and better inform the public about the political process.
