Really Mayor Rawlings-Blake How would you propose eliminating the homeless begging for money and crime so the "world elite athletes" and Olympic "fans" won't encounter Baltimore's problems with homelessness and crime Also, we have NOT done a "phenomenal job" with the Baltimore Grand Prix, in fact, it's been severely bungled...Baltimore Mayor Stephanie-Rawlings Blake said in a statement: "It would be a fantastic opportunity to showcase the region. And we would do a phenomenal job hosting the world elite athletes and fans from around the world."
And of course our state Government is all for having the Olympics coming to Maryland :
"We'd be very interested in learning more about any organized efforts that might be under way to bring the 2024 Olympics to our state, " said Terry Hasseltine, the state Department of Business and Economic Development's director of sports marketing. "That being said, we'll take our cue from the USOC."
