Oliver Yates, Independent for Kooyong, has said he is a passionate supporter for a Hawthorn Basketball Association new stadium.
Mr Yates said, “Hawthorn Basketball Association needs a home stadium.”
“It is simply unacceptable that a powerful local club doesn’t have a stadium of its own.
“If elected, I will make it a core priority to ensure that Hawthorn Basketball Association has homecourt funding.
“I want to see the club grow and win.
“Local sport and our facilities have been ignored for too long. The Liberal Party have taken this seat for granted.
“Also, I have been deeply troubled that the Hawthorn Basketball Association is unable to display even basic advertising.
“My candidacy is based on a desire to see a healthy environment and a strong local community, and I am passionate about local sport.
“It’s critical that we develop the facilities to enable local sport in Kooyong to grow and flourish.”
