Jones praises con­duct of un­suc­cess­ful can­di­dates

Bray People - - ELECTION 2011 -

CLLR. GE­ORGE JONES, Fine Gael Leader of Wick­low County Coun­cil, has praised the con­duct of other can­di­dates at the re­cent elec­tion count in Shore­line Grey­stones.

‘While the re­sult was great for Fine Gael and Andrew Doyle, Si­mon Har­ris and Billy Tim­mins com­bined to give the party the best ever re­sult in Wick­low it is right that we praise can­di­dates who were not suc­cess­ful.

‘In par­tic­u­lar for­mer Deputy Joe Be­han who hav­ing lost his seat ear­lier stayed around to con­grat­u­late all suc­cess­ful TDs.

‘Cllr. Pat Fitzger­ald de­spite the ef­forts by his own party to have him elim­i­nated also showed great cour­tesy to ev­ery­one.'

Cllr. Jones also high­lighted the cour­tesy shown by Cllr. John Brady and his sup­port­ers to the Fine Gael can­di­dates on a dif­fi­cult night for him.

‘At times when we op­pose each other it is also cor­rect that we give credit where it is due and that we should show re­spect for our col­leagues op­er­at­ing in the po­lit­i­cal sys­tem.'
