BACK to Belmore Inc president Luke Brailey can see the light at the end of the long tunnel following Morris Iemma's resignation from politics.
Mr Brailey said a new representative offers a glimmer of hope for the committee, who have been campaigning to get the Bulldogs home ground back in Belmore.
Mr Brailey said Mr Iemma's successor had to make the state of Belmore Sports Ground a priority.
"The new State member will need to work extremely hard to combat dilapidation, disrepair and deterioration which have clearly taken their toll on the historic venue in recent years.
"In order for the Canterbury-Bankstown area to have an upgraded venue that meets the needs of the community, we all need to work together to achieve this goal."
He said he praised Bulldogs chief executive officer Todd Greenberg and the new Bulldogs board for asking Prime Minister Kevin Rudd for funding.
"Mr Greenberg clearly understands the desire of Bulldogs supporters to get back to Belmore," Mr Brailey said.
