AS A can­di­date for the ex­tended Balt­in­glass area in the lo­cal elec­tion for Wick­low County Coun­cil on May 23rd 2014, I would like to take the op­por­tu­nity to in­tro­duce my­self to you the elec­torate. I live in Ti­na­hely with my wife Mary and have three chil­dren; David, Yvonne and John.

I have been a mem­ber of Wick­low County Coun­cil since 1998. I am cur­rently the Chair­man of The Wa­ter and En­vi­ron­ment Strate­gic Pol­icy Com­mit­tee and I’m also a mem­ber of The Polic­ing Com­mit­tee and The Plan­ning Com­mit­tee. In 2002-2003 I had the priv­i­lege of serv­ing as Chair­man of Wick­low County Coun­cil. I very much ap­pre­ci­ate the op­por­tu­nity af­forded to me to serve the people of Wick­low and the sup­port that has been shown to me in my time as a Coun­cil­lor.

Over my pe­riod as a mem­ber of the Coun­cil I have helped to pro­mote im­por­tant is­sues on be­half of the com­mu­nity. These is­sues in­clude ed­u­ca­tional, plan­ning, en­vi­ron­men­tal, tourism and com­mu­nity projects. On May 23rd I ask you for your No.1 vote to al­low me con­tinue this work.

If I am re-elected, I will be com­mit­ted to rep­re­sent­ing the views and needs of our com­mu­nity. The pro­vi­sion of em­ploy­ment must be a pri­or­ity in the im­me­di­ate fu­ture along with the health and well­be­ing of our older gen­er­a­tion. It is also im­por­tant that with the cre­ation of the new Balt­in­glass Mu­nic­i­pal district, the nec­es­sary re­sources are pro­vided to de­velop the in­fra­struc­ture that our small towns, vil­lages and ru­ral pop­u­la­tion are en­ti­tled to.

Once again, on May 23rd I would ap­pre­ci­ate your No.1 vote.
