Local TD Brendan Ryan was selected last week as the Labour Party’s General Election candidate for Dublin Fingal.
In a selection convention in Skerries Harps new clubhouse, Ryan was proposed by Cllr Duncan Smith and seconded by Labour Fingal Chair Geoff McEvoy. He was selected unopposed to contest the seat he first won in 2011.
“I am looking forward to the next year and making my case to the people of the North County. I have always canvassed regularly and I can see the tide beginning to turn. As the economic recovery takes hold, people are beginning to look forward with improved confidence. That said, there are still many challenges to face and to defeat,” Ryan told the County Leader.
“Many people are still struggling to make ends meet and these are the people I have been representing in my time as a public representative. One of the major challenges is the housing crisis and I have been working as Chair of the Labour Committee on Housing, working to provide solutions to this crisis. We are starting to see houses being built and regulations regarding discrimination in the rental market change and this is because of Labour. I want to continue that work,” he added.
Local Labour councillor, Duncan Smith, who will be Ryan’s Director of Elections said: “It has been an honour to work with Brendan since he became TD and see at first hand his dedication to he people of the North County. No other public representative works as hard to find real solutions for ordinary people. I am looking forward to taking the campaign to the doors with our Labour activists over the next year.”
