Since leading the No Boston Olympics effort to keep our city games-free in 2024, Chris Dempsey (@cdempc) is in demand across the world. On the heels of Boston, the co-chair of the group stepped up to help out in Toronto, where the city ultimately decided not to apply for the games.
Then it was globetrotting off to Hamburg, Germany to talk with Olympic opposition leaders there, where the public ultimately voted nein.
And now, the world tour continues.. with No Boston Olympics lending their expertise to Rome.
Dempsey was also recently named the Globe's co-Bostonian of the year for 2015, along with the chief proponent of the Olympics — John Fish.
