Re: Naming revenue not so abhorrent (Our View, May 9)
How about setting up an online petition for we who are for the idea of selling naming rights? We can even get out onto the streets to collect signatures and I bet we would get feedback that would support the selling of naming rights.
I love Victoria, but I am exhausted with the old-fogey thinking that seems to pervade every new idea that comes up, especially if it will help out the taxpayer.
Who said taxpayers have any rights to enjoy advertising-free public space? Is that some edict I have missed?
We need our facilities and we need to find revenue to build or upgrade those facilities, instead of continuing to go into debt because of constipated thinking.
It’s time for a reality adjustment for those who don’t want to do anything except spend taxpayers’ money and, at the same time, have no succinct, workable ideas on how to raise the money to fund all we need to be a vital city where the needs of citizens matter first.
