The U.S. Olympic Committee invited Atlanta (and 34 other cities) to begin discussing a bid for the 2024 Olympics.
NOT SO FAST says Andrew Young. Young was mayor of Atlanta during the bid process and a leader of the successful 1996 campaign.
Speaking to Atlanta magazine, he said: “In the first place, I don’t feel like going through it again, and I don’t imagine anyone from 1996 will.
“It’s a ten-year commitment.
“We have other things we need to do that are going to command our attention – transportation, water resources. There are a lot of problems we need to take care of.”
