My Values

I decided to run in the 2019 Local Elections in Ennis because I look around and I do not see anyone of my generation involved in electoral politics in County Clare. Many people my age were not as fortunate as I was as they were caught up in the devestating effects of the financial crash, they now work in jobs that are below their level of skills and ability & are caught in negative equity in houses that are too small for the families that they now have. People in their late 20’s to 40’s have been so badly let down by the people that were supposed to be the pillars of society and are frankly too busy meeting the day to day needs of their families to look and see what is going on in the council chambers around the counrty.

I also look around and see a County and Country where our local politicians are out of step with the modern face of Ireland, especially on social issues like the Together for Yes &  Yes Equality campaigns which legalised Gay Marriage & Repealed the 8th Amendment to the Constitution, in County Clare not one Councillor had the courage to come and be involved with either campaign while some were actively opposed to both changes.
