Frank Kilbride
Independent
Party 6


Incumbent : No

Main message to voters:

"Our children are our future and we do not want to see them leaving these shores when we should have jobs for them.” “We have exported more and more people out of this country and then the Government tells us that employment is on the rise.

Election history:

With fifteen years of experience on Longford County Council, and as a former Lord Mayor of Longford I know what it takes to find solutions, navigate complicated governmental agencies, and get things done.

Priorities:

  1. “We must create jobs for the people of Longford and Westmeath and that will be one of my priorities as we go along the road to hopefully achieve this”
  2. The small and medium business Loan Scheme must be made more accessible. Introduce special commercial rates, to encourage hard-pressed retail shops
  3. Make farming a more attractive livelihood for young people. Simplify the Farm Grants application process.
