Remembering Ronnie

As reported in tonight's Evening Telegraph, I have given my strong support to the paper's campaign to have Caird Park Stadium renamed in memory of Ronnie McIntosh, who passed away earlier this month.

I have already had constituents contact me to support this proposal which I think is an excellent one.   Ronnie was a truly inspirational Dundonian and it would be a fitting way to remember him.

I have been in correspondence with the City Council Chief Executive who has advised me that "... the officers of the Council are now looking into the matter.”   

I think the proposal is something everyone in Dundee can get behind.  You can read more on the proposal and show your support on the Facebook page the Tele has started - it has already over 400 'likes' giving a clear indication of the public's strong support.
