U.S. Representative Ed Royce (R-Fullerton), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released the following statement on the renewed possibility of the selection of Los Angeles as the United States bid city for the 2024 Summer Olympics:
“Los Angeles is a proven host of the Olympics and has the infrastructure necessary to host a successful Games that will put our nation’s best foot forward. With the opening this past week of the Special Olympics World Games, we’ve witnessed the spirit of international unity that our city can bring forth. I’m hopeful that the USOC will reconsider Los Angeles for this future honor,” said Rep. Royce.
Last year, Rep. Royce was joined in signing a letter of support for Los Angeles’ bid by 20 other members of California’s Congressional delegation including U.S. Representative Xavier Becerra (D-Los Angeles) and U.S. Representative Judy Chu (D-Monterey Park).
The letter, which was sent on Friday, November 14, 2014, can be viewed here.
