OPINION: I am one of the 62 per cent of people who attend events at Stadium Southland who live outside the city. I am a ratepayer in the Southland District Council area and am embarrassed by the very low level of support there has been from our council.

The last set of figures that I saw published had the Southland District Council contributing the princely sum of $250,000. It is my opinion that at least another zero should be added to that figure to make $2.5 million. This is, after all, a Southland stadium. Let's all help pay for the wonderful facility that we now have.
