London Summer Olympic Games 2012
"If we're going to be a serious contender against Istanbul, Tokyo, and Madrid we've got to do our research," the Mayor said. "We have until September 2013 to wow the IOC, and I think they're going to be very impressed with Mooseville and all it has to offer."
We caught up with the Mayor at Globetrotter Travel where she was finishing up some last minute reservations. When asked how Mooseville would be able to play host for such a large event as the Olympic games, the Mayor was hesitant to nail down a specific answer.
"I don't know," she said. "That's why we're researching, but I'm confident the good people of Mooseville will make excellent hosts for the world and its athletes."
As part of the Mayor's trip she plans to attend events, sample food, examine architecture, participate in entertainment, and analyze the media coverage and needs required to host an Olympic games.
"This isn't a vacation," the Mayor said. "I'll be working with the Mooseville Journal Record and the business owners on Moose Street to help strum up excitement about the Olympic games in our community. I think it's important to have Moosevillian's support as we move forward with our plans to win the bid for the 2020 games."
When asked if she thought Mooseville would be ready by 2020 the Mayor shrugged. "Maybe 2024. Either way, we'll give it our best shot."
In the Mayor's absence Mooseville residents can be assured that business will run as usual.
"I'm leaving City Council and my staff in good hands," the Mayor promised.
Due to a phone call she had to suddenly take, the Mayor was unable to tell us exactly who would be steering the ship while she was away.
When the Mayor's aide was pressed for an answer she said she wasn't at liberty to say, but the look on her face said it all.
