1: North Westmeath and Mullingar need a strong and visible Garda presence and the support to take stronger action against anti social behaviour and in particular, burglaries.
2: I have taken a strong stand against unjust water charges and I am adamant that there is a fairer way than the establishment of another quango that’s sole purpose is to take our assets Lough Owel/Ennell and Lene.
3:I have been instrumental in the setting up of a council committee to review one-off house planning permissions. I will ensure that a more practical resolution will be found to accommodate locals.
4:The Lake County is known for its beauty and I have taken a strong position to protect local tourism from the blight of industrial wind turbines and unnecessary pylons.
5: Prioritising the development of youth facilities in Mullingar including further funding for youth café and Mullingar skate park.
