  • I want to apply the business and financial experience that I have gained from working first hand with ordinary people to politics
  • I want to see the retention of the services at Monaghan Hospital
  • I believe that red tape and bureaucracy is having a detrimental effect on our farming community. This needs to be reduced as I believe that the agri-sector will play a major role in our economic revival
  • We need to stem the tide of emigration. It is our young people who will get Ireland working again and we need to keep our youth here
