Senator John Kelly By-Election Candidate for Roscommon/South Leitrim Arts, Heritage, Gaeltacht Affairs, Training & Skills Ireland Midlands North West : Roscommon/South Leitrim : Castlerea094 9861027
I have lived and worked all my life in Roscommon, and if elected as your TD there is nobody who will fight harder for the people of Roscommon-South Leitrim. There are encouraging signs that the economy is picking up. But I want to see more job creation and investment in Roscommon-South Leitrim. I will work tirelessly with Tánaiste Joan Burton on the creation of decent, sustainable local jobs and I am committed to supporting sustainable rural communities. I will also work with my Labour Party colleagues in government to ensure that medical cards are provided for those who need them most.
As your TD, I will use my position to call for the establishment of an independent beef regulator. Given my experience as a Senator, if elected I will hit the ground running and be an active and efficient TD from day one. I have a strong track-record of working on behalf of the people of Roscommon-South Leitrim and I am asking for your Number 1 vote to continue that work in Dail Eireann.
Senator John Kelly
