Giving away money not the solution to our stadium problem
I was very disturbed to see that some councillors - including both of my local - voted to give away $10m of public money to Eden Park with no strings. There was an alternative of making this a loan which would've been paid but this was narrowly voted down.
Mt Eden needed help and consolidation of the loans was necessary. But giving away money wasn't.
It's also unbelievable that many of the same councillors who complained about $900k spent on a stadium report voted in support of a $10m giveaway (instead of the far more sensible loan).
Is this another example of our elected leaders saying one thing but doing another?
We deserve better than this.
