It’s the General Election. The 2020 edition. I’m sure you’ve noticed the posters.
If you’re living in Wicklow, you might be wondering who’s worth voting for. I thought I’d list the candidates, with links to their websites. We can all have a frank discussion about who they are, what they stand for etc etc. At least that’s the dream. It’s more probable that you are reading this in 2027, after clicking a little too far into the Google search results for “Greystones”.
Ok so who do we have to choose from? Well, we have:
- Joe Behan - Independent
- John Brady - Sinn Féin
- Sharon Briggs - People Before Profit
- Patrick Casey (Fianna Fáil)
- Seamus Connor - Aontú
- Valerie Cox (Independent)
- Stephen Donnelly (Fianna Fáil)
- Andrew Doyle ( Fine Gael )
- Tom Dunne (Independent)
- Eileen Gunning (National Party)
- Simon Harris (Fine Gael)
- Charlie Keddy (Independent)
- William King (Independent)
- John Larkin (Independent)
- Steven Matthews (Green Party)
- Paul O’Brien (Labour)
- John Snell (Independent)
