Three Steps to Local Recovery

I am committed to ‘Three Steps to Local Recovery’;

1 creation of local jobs and enterprise;

2 supporting families and households and

3 supporting empowering communities

If you elect Fine Gael councillors we will:

· Not support any increase in the local property tax, and decrease it where possible
· Freeze commercial rates, and reduce them where possible
· Support Local Enterprise Offices, to enhance job creation in all communities
· Be accountable to you, by showing how your Local Property Tax is invested and publishing regular reports on how public services are delivered

  After the Local elections, we will have a new system of local government The people’s vote matters more than ever, because councillors will have more power – giving voters a stronger voice.
