CARNEW

Bray People - - COMMENT -

A Chara, I would like to in­tro­duce my­self to you, the elec­torate of the Balt­in­glass lo­cal elec­toral area.

Some of you will know me but as the bound­aries for the County Coun­cil ar­eas have been re­drawn, oth­ers will not so I'd like to tell you a lit­tle about my­self and how I work.

I am fam­ily man, mar­ried to Mary, liv­ing in Carnew and I have been part of the farm­ing com­mu­nity all my life.

With 20 + years of ex­pe­ri­ence on Wick­low County Coun­cil, my record as a coun­cil­lor goes be­fore me and I pride my­self on be­ing hard work­ing and straight talk­ing. I can and al­ways will con­tinue to deliver for the people I rep­re­sent.

A com­mu­nity man, I've al­ways been ac­tively in­volved in lo­cal char­i­ties and vol­un­tary or­gan­i­sa­tions, some ex­am­ples be­ing, Trea­surer of Carnew Em­mets GAA Club, South Wick­low Hospice, Chair­man of Carnew Com­mu­nity Care.

I place my­self be­fore you as a can­di­date in the lo­cal County Coun­cil elec­tions and ask you for your No.1 vote.

In re­turn I prom­ise that when re-elected I will en­sure that I con­tinue to be a strong, cred­i­ble voice in the Coun­cil cham­bers.

Work­ing on your be­half to make sure that the needs and wishes of the people of the whole area from Carnew, through, Shil­le­lagh and Ti­na­hely, from Knock­ananna to Val­ley­mount, from Balt­in­glass, Bless­ing­ton and Manor Kil­bride and every­where in be­tween, are ex­pressed and more im­por­tantly that they are heard.

I will con­tinue to fight for sup­ports and in­fra­struc­ture so vi­tally needed and oft times for­got­ten when it comes to small ru­ral ar­eas.

Hard work­ing and ex­pe­ri­enced, rooted in com­mu­nity, I spend my time lis­ten­ing and tak­ing note of the is­sues that are af­fect­ing people and you'll all agree is­sues are some­thing we are not short on at the present time.

It’s these is­sues that I have al­ways worked on and al­ways will.

I am very hon­oured to be able to do this for our lo­cal area so I ask that you please give me your No1 to al­low me to con­tinue to work on your be­half. Is Mise le Meas
