Gary wants to ensure a Fair Recovery for the people of Donegal. He feels the County has been let down by successive Governments with regard to infrastructure, jobs, health and education. In particular, he wants to represent the people of the Finn Valley which has been without a TD for decades.
Gary was co-opted to Donegal County Council in 2013. He subsequently topped the poll in the Stranorlar Electoral Area at the local elections with a first preference vote of 1964 and a vote share of 19%, which was the highest in Donegal.
