Banging the Stadium drum dee dum. Advocacy Journalism?

Saturdays Herald readers Poll:

What order of priority should Gisborne District Council place on the following in its 10-year plan?

Please select in order of priority.

1 Multi-sport centre and pool

2 Repair pool, no multi-sport centre

3 More city walkways and cycleways

4 Create a civic square

5 Developing the inner harbour

6 Upgrading flood control scheme

No option offered to Not Vote for the damn stadium, just order these choices.

Having just run a frontpage story showing a majority of respondents to the district plan reject Brian Wilson and Eastland Groups Pet Stadium (they’ve been saving that money up for something) our Herald runs this poll.

Pushing an agenda? Giving silly ratepayers another chance to get it right?

Perhaps the Editorial would lay their cards on the table?
