Why have you decided to run in this election?

I have been a councillor for the past ten years and i enjoy very much doing what I have to do as  a public representative.


Why should people vote for you?

I have been a full time public representative for Graiguecullen /Portarlington District and I have time to represent my constituents 


What do you think is lacking in your area?

Stradbally is very much in need of a community center  and I am working with the Stradbally Community Development Association  to secure a site for this badly needed facility.
There is also an issue in Stradbally with speeding through the town particularly coming from the Carlow direction.
In Portarlington  there is more employment needed for the town. Huge numbers commute every day from the town to work in other areas, mostly to Dublin. What portarlington needs is a major employer in industry or manufacturing and Laois County Council and public representatives need to encourage such development. 
In Ballybrittas sewerage issues need to be progressed in the village.
In Portarlington, Stradbally, Ballybrittas, Graiguecullen and Killenard housing estates in these towns and villages need to be completed and taken in charge by Laois County Council
