You’ll soon have a chance to vote in a General Election in very different circumstances to 2011. They’re certainly different for me – it’s my first time running!

While the economy is improving, these improvements must benefit everyone. I joined the Green Party to ensure that this happens. It’s important that we adjust our sails to ensure that Limerick and Ireland benefit, no matter what way the economic winds may be blowing.

I joined the Green Party because I share its values. Good planning, strong communities, decent services, improved education, the creation of a fair Green economy, protecting our water and preparing for climate change – these are all interconnected.  One thing enhances another.

Please give me your Number 1 vote or next highest preference.

Best wishes,

James Gaffney
