  It's like this..

Dear Voter,

I am asking you to give me your number 1 vote.

I believe that as an Independent, I am uniquely placed to make a significant contribution to the workings of Dáil Éireann, if you give me the chance to do so. I was born and grew up in Mercer Street, off St Stephen’s Green and have lived most of my life in the city centre where I have worked as a writer and public artist.

Seven years ago I was first elected as an Independent to Dublin City Council and returned at the subsequent election with a significantly increased vote. I have participated fully in the work of the Council, serving on many committees including the appointment as Chair to the South East Area Policing Committee and the Dublin City Council Contracts Committee. I also serve as a Commissioner for Irish Lights.

I believe that this constituency and this country are best served by independent action and independent policies. I have been independent all my life. Through sometimes bitter experience I understand how systems work, all sorts of systems. I know how they can intimidate, but I am not afraid of them. I am not afraid to stand up, not afraid to be heard and not afraid to demand accountability either from systems or from the people who manage them.

I have worked hard to contribute to the proper development of our capital city. A Dublin that we can all be confident in and derive benefit from. A city for everyone that is properly serviced and managed to the highest standard. My focus will be on health, housing, education and job creation. To grow the city along the same lines as progressive European cities, attractive for families and children and making it safe, secure and enjoyable for all.

I believe that my work record demonstrates that I can be a catalyst for change and progressive policies if elected to Dáil Éireann.
