As a husband, father and town councillor, who has had the honour of being Mayor of Mallow in the past, James knows the town and its communities intimately.
He has worked in Mallow all his adult life and has been active in the trade union movement and has also been involved in sporting, educational and community based activities.
Seán Sherlock TD and James Kennedy want pursue projects for Mallow that will revitalise the town, making it the best place it can be to live, work and grow.
We need to see Mallow included in State tourism projects, we need real housing action from County Hall, we need a proper traffic management plan for the town that will end the tailbacks and traffic jams occurring on a daily basis. We need to encourage cycling and walking in the town as part of alternative transport and healthy lifestyles.
Through events like the Parkrun and Mallow 10 Miles we have gained a foothold as an area to host events. Clubs and organisations cannot be hamstrung from hosting locals and visitors to Mallow through crippling insurance costs.
Better consultation with all people in Mallow is need on plans for the next five years and beyond. We need to regain control of parking in Mallow. No longer should we be paying a private company to operate on public land when we can control our own carparks and ensure that money paid in Mallow remains in Mallow.
We want Mallow to work better for you. Working with Seán Sherlock in Dáil Eireann, James Kennedy will work to address these issues and more.
