Judgement day looms on DCC debt
By David Loughrey
In six weeks, Dunedin residents will have the opportunity to have their say on the city’s future at the 2010 local government elections. Dunedin City Council reporter David Loughrey looks at the council’s record in the last triennium, considers the issues that will dominate the election, and asks: Does the council listens to its citizens?
The city’s roofed stadium was the big issue at the last election, but with building of the facility now well advanced, that debate has evolved.
Instead of the focusing on a “yes” or “no” for the stadium, campaigns begun by challengers to the incumbents have usually included criticism of the debt created by the stadium and other multimillion-dollar projects.
