Cllr Pamela Kearns Candidate for the 2014 Local Election Dublin : Dublin South West : Templeogue-Terenue087 7756718
First elected to South Dublin County Council in 2009, I was honoured to serve as Deputy Mayor of the county in 2011.
With a track record as an effective community activist, I am recognised for my hands-on approach, work ethic and commitment to working on behalf of the local residents.
My contributions to the community to date include:
Leading an online petition and a door-to-door campaign that ultimately saved the 54a bus route through Templeogue.
Campaigning to maintain services in Tallaght hospital.
Highlighting the need for responsible dog ownership in order to reduce the incidences of dog fouling in the locality.
Proposing that new legislation should be introduced to restrict the sale of cans of spray paint to persons over 18 years of age and with proof of identity in order to reduce the incidences of graffiti in the locality. This was subsequently adopted by other Councils and I am now currently lobbying the Minister of the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government to implement these measures.
Supporting the campaign to restrict the height of the proposed redeveloped Ashleaf shopping centre
Spearheading the initiative to get free Wi-Fi for Templeogue village. This campaign has been successful.
I would welcome the opportunity to discuss any local issues with residents or community groups.
