I have lived and worked all my life in Roscommon, having served as a local Councillor and now as a Senator representing the people of Roscommon. There are encouraging signs that the economy is picking up. But I want to see more job creation and investment in Roscommon.
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.
Senator John Kelly
