Salt Lake City Vows Transparency, Frugality In Olympic Bid

Leaders of a new Salt Lake City Olympic bid committee vowed Wednesday to be transparent and frugal as they design a plan based around existing venues used in the 2002 Winter Olympics but that will also include new, modern ideas. Committee chair Cindy Crane told board members every conversation they have should be considered public. She says that wasn't in direct reference to the bribery scandal that nearly derailed 2002 Games, but says it's part of a plan that will make clear “those days are well behind us.” The committee will be assessing whether to bid for the 2030 or 2034 Games.
