At the heart of green politics is social justice. So those in power need to represent those whose voices are not always heard. In Donegal this will be our young people having to go elsewhere to find work and our older citizens facing winter in fuel poverty again. We need to hear all those voices.
I am a first time candidate. I have however managed a regional peace project where I trained and supported women to become involved in politics across all social levels. This has given me an insight into the lack of gender equality in our political decision making and how this impacts on women.
