Still No Fundraising for Memorial

Eight months after the World Trade Center memorial design was unveiled, Gov. Pataki and Mayor Bloomberg have yet to find a prominent person willing to lead the foundation that's raising the money to build it.
"We're talking to several people and trying to persuade them to undertake what will be a very large and important job in the city," said John Whitehead, chairman of the Lower Manhattan Development Corp.
"It's hard to get the very best people to chair what will be a large fund-raising project," Whitehead conceded.
The World Trade Center Memorial Foundation will have the responsibility of raising between $400 million and $600 million for construction of the memorial and two cultural buildings at Ground Zero.
