Barbara Smyth
Independent
Party 6


Incumbent : No

Main message to voters:

I believe that the decisions being made in Dáil Éireann by the current Government are not being made in the best interests of the Irish people. Austerity (planned poverty) as a policy is no solution. A fairer and more equal society that rewards work and benefits all of our citizens is possible.

Election history:

I am Independent4Change running on the #Right2Change platform. Having run in local elections in 2014 I firmly believe that we, the people, are not being adequately represented by political parties. I will bring the message of the people to Dáil Éireann in a very vocal way. We deserve a strong voice

Priorities:

  1. We have been starved of jobs, the GPS co-ordinates for Longford are 53.6667° N, 7.7500° W. I will be a thorn in the side of the next Jobs Minister.
  2. A real living wage, not a "minimum wage". An end to zero hour contracts & demeaning schemes such as JobBridge, we deserve the dignity of a living wage
  3. Water is NOT a commodity, it's a human right. Provision of water services is already funded by our central taxation system -> WE ALREADY PAY FOR IT <-
