Serve My Country – I will give a real priority to the following issues:
Action for recovery. I will support policies to control the public finance deficit and ensure investment in areas capable of delivering a sustainable recovery – especially through support for SMEs, retraining and R&D.
Help those in need. At a time of great economic pressures everyone feels the impact, but those most in need, especially the young, the elderly and the unemployed, must still receive a clear priority.
Work with the EU. I will support a greater engagement with the EU in the Oireachtas and the community because I believe that only through the EU, can we achieve economic and social progress.
Serve My Community – I will:
Push for business and job supports. Dublin South’s businesses and its people need support in protecting and creating jobs, especially through training and investment schemes. This will be at the top of my agenda if elected.
Stay in touch with you. Regular contact with constituents through clinics, local visits and an always-available office. This will be an integral part of my work as your public representative.
Support Local Schools and Clubs. Dublin South has a great range of community and sports facilities, including wonderful schools and sports clubs. I will actively work on their behalf to increase funding for new and greater facilities.
