My Name is David Eaton, and I am a Local Area Representative for the Lucan area.
I grew up and still live in Palmerstown, the youngest son of a large working class family. I was the first person in my family to get a degree, and also the first to join a political party. Currently I am studying at UCD, doing a Masters of Public Policy.
Being from a working class background I have an understanding of the challenges faced by those in low income households. This is one of the reasons I wanted to get into politics as I feel the working class need a voice with personal experience of the situations and challenges that they face on a daily basis.
I have faced unique challenges in my lifetime. Through these periods I have learned to work hard to meet my end goals. It hasn’t always been straightforward but I have always found a ways to succeed even if the tasks have proven difficult and I have had to find alternative means to complete them. It's through this experience that I feel I can help the people in our community meet their goals even though the pathway may not always be the easiest
My life experience has taught me much, about what people really need from politicians. My priorities are as such :
- To provide a strong, and consistent Labour Party voice for Palmerstown
- To keep people in our community up to date about local public services
- To become a more active and engaged citizen in my local community
If there is any issue you feel I could help you with please feel free to contact me.
