I am a retired prison officer and have been involved in the POA for over 30 years.
I have been actively involved in local campaign groups most notably the Hospital Action group which has managed to maintain most of its services. I am also involved in local pantomime group which has managed to raise funds for local community
I am contesting the local elections as I want to see accountability to the local electorate specifically in relation to planning, which in Portlaoise has been particularly inappropriate over the years.
