ODT reader says stadium “is the dumbest idea since ejector seats in helicopters”

He would be right. More than that, he has generously passed to the other side!

Letters to the editor
Challenge to silent majority
By Phil Handcock, Andersons Bay
I am a reluctant stadium supporter – very reluctant…But, since the rate collectors have motgaged our future on this project, I have stopped being part of the vocal minority and join the silent majority – those that truly believe that this is a visionary investment. Now that I have joined your group, I realise that I have no idea who you are, or where you are. So, I am proposing that we meet and become the visible majority. I am suggesting that this Saturday we all meet at Carisbrook…

Mr Handcock finishes nobly with a stadium fundraising idea directed to the Otago Rugby Football Union, complicit with Saturday’s rugby match.

The full letter is available in print and digital editions of the Otago Daily Times.
