It is an honour to contest the General Election on Saturday 8th February 2020 for Fianna Fáil in the Roscommon Galway Constituency. Having served on Roscommon County Council since 2004 I want the opportunity to effect greater change for individuals and families and to make things happen for our towns, villages, rural areas and communities on a national level.
I have a strong proven track record as a public representative serving on Roscommon County Council for over 15 years. I bring experience, commitment and determination and a great understanding of politics and community development, working on projects in Roscommon Galway throughout my life.
Housing, health, and other frontline services are not being delivered under Fine Gael. For many young families and people, homeownership remains an unattainable ambition. Fine Gael’s housing policy has been a complete failure. It is clear we need a change of government.
It is evident the outcome of the next General Election will be critical to the futures of so many and we need a change of government. I look forward to working with my Party colleague Eugene Murphy TD during the campaign.
When the call came from the Leader of Fianna Fail, Micheal Martin T.D. asking me to contest the election, I was glad to accept this great opportunity. Timing in politics, like other aspects of life is always critically important. If elected, I will be a strong voice for Roscommon Galway in Dáil Éireann.
I will be running a poster free General Election campaign in the interest of the environment and local amenities. This is consistent with my stand in the Local Election 2019 when I ran a poster free campaign
