My vision for Dublin South Central
I want Dublin to be a more community-focused and sustainable city; a vibrant city built for people.
What I stand for
I stand for investing in communities - working to ensure that they are well planned, sustainable and have space for all.
- Ireland needs quality public housing - we need to build more homes, for all ages and incomes. Yet there is very little building happening, either public or private. This needs to change.
- We must empower community development. As we face the challenges of today we can come together to help and support each other. The community sector has been let down again and again. The Green Party will reform community development structures so they empower communities.
- Ireland needs sustainable transport - we need to support cycling, walking and public transport. This will not only help us face the challenge of climate change, it will also make our towns and cities cleaner and more accessible.
- We need to face up to Climate Change. While we can all make individual changes what is needed is serious action from government to make a real difference in relation to Climate Change. This government has failed again and again. We need a new government that will act now.
