Governments need to listen and introduce policies that benefit people's lives; the next govt needs to repair societies that have been decimated by years of austerity. Indos can hold governments to account because they do not operate under a whip. Enough No 1 votes would put me in that position.
First elected to Cork City Council as an Ind in 2009; topped the poll in 2014. Ran in 201o Gen Election and got 3,000 votes.
