My vision for Pembroke

I want our families to live in an inclusive, progressive, sustainable society. To do so we must have diverse and strong advocates in local and national government. My vision for Pembroke is to build an inclusive, clean and sustainable community.

What I stand for

I stand for inclusiveness, progressive politics and a better, cleaner and sustainable society.

My priorities

    • As a city Councillor, the most important decision you get to participate and decide on is the City Development Plan. This is the framework of how to build a proper working city. I want to use my voice to ensure we build a better and more sustainable city.
    • Emphasis on climate action now rather than later. We need proper climate action and we need just transition for workers in companies that are impacted when we move to a greener future.
    • Ensuring we have inclusivity across the board no matter of gender or race. Having our politics reflect the fabric of our society.
    • Representing those who are most vulnerable and holding the government to account for their failings. We must introduce more innovative measures to tackle the pressing issues of housing and healthcare.

My experience

A graduate from Kings Inns and UCD Smurfit I worked in New York, Hong Kong and Sydney. I am the National Coordinator for the party, Chair of the Exec and Spokesperson for Enterprise. In my spare time I advocate on issues of diversity and equality on various media platforms.
