The hard work of campaigning over the past months and weeks has reached its conclusion and now all that’s left is to get out and vote!
Running for the Stillorgan electoral area of Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council has been a wonderful experience and it has been a privilege to engage with so many people on the doorstep.
The last few months have certainly been busy as we recently welcomed my newborn daughter into the world. Having a baby has given me even more motivation to do what I can to safeguard the future for the next generation. More than ever, I can see that the decisions taken now will have a lasting impact on our children.
There is so much we can do at local level to protect our environment and decisions taken in the Council will affect our local transport, housing, waste management and green spaces. Together, the actions taken on these issues will decide how we tackle the issue of climate change and whether we can meet the challenges ahead.
My campaign team and I have been humbled by the warm responses at the door and we are hopeful that a green wave is about to hit Ireland!
I’d like to thank my family and campaign team for all their support in recent months.
Whatever you do this Friday, please get out tomorrow and vote!
And remember, if you want green, vote green!
