GASP Groups Against Stadium Proposals fights destruction of Historical Air Park

May Election Playing Field

GASP is an apolitical group however we feel the May elections are key to terminating this folly.
Below is the candidate list. We have included, where possible, their ‘public’ views on the Stadium Proposal.
If a candidate is not willing to make public their position regarding the stadium either in the press, publication or letter to GASP then one must question their motives. Are these the people who will represent your feelings?
Irrespective of party or stance we wish them all well in their campaigns.
