Brendan Young
Independent
Party 6


Incumbent : No

Main message to voters:

The budget gave more to the rich and gave multinationals another tax-break scheme. The priorities must change: restore living standards for ordinary people, stop paying bankers debt and end the charges that are paying for the bailout, like the water charge - which I call for people not to pay.

Election history:

I was elected to Kildare Co Council in 2014 on my record of opposing austerity. I am standing in the General Election as a candidate who campaigns for positive change. I fight for equality and for a government that will act in the interests of ordinary people, the majority, and stop climate change.

Priorities:

  1. I oppose the property tax and fight for the restoration of local services, especially healthcare, like Naas Hospital and the North Kildare ambulance.
  2. I want a €3bn/yr state home-building program. Stop evictions: raise Rent Supplement; reduce interest & write-down mortgages; don't sell AIB or PTSB.
  3. Repeal the 8th Amendment: free, safe, legal abortion. End Irish collusion with invasions in the Middle East. Welcome refugees. End Direct Provision.
