This Weeks Headline: Newsom leading effort to bring Olympics to Tahoe
Posted by admin in Outdoor & Sports on July 2nd, 2011
Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom has been named chairman of the committee trying to bring the Winter Olympics back to Lake Tahoe. The California Winter Games Committee is working with Nevada to have the Tahoe-Reno area host the games in 2022.
California has been a little late to join the effort, having done so just earlier this year. Whereas, Nevada has been in the game for years. State Sen. Ted Gaines, R-Roseville, is one of several honorary chairmen.
