Hello! I am Lola Gonzalez and I am honoured to be selected to contest the Local Elections in Carrick-on-Shannon in June 2024. I moved here over eight years ago and from my work as an Inclusion EU Project Specialist based out of Leitrim village, as well as many years volunteering within our community, I know that we live in a very special place with so much to offer. I want to be our voice that enables us all to reach our full potential.
I can bring new innovative and inclusive ideas into our council chamber. I want to ensure our Council is transparent, accountable, and fair. I want to make sure that affordable and accessible housing is a top priority. We need sustainable and connected public transport, and roads that are safe for our children to walk and cycle. I want to ensure that fast Broadband connection is a reality, not just a dream for homes and businesses across the County. I will fight to protect and enhance biodiversity, to ensure our water is clean and champion a fair transition towards a carbon neutral economy.
In order to win a seat, I need to raise money to pay for leaflets, posters and social media advertising. I don't have the same resources as those running for more traditional parties. Therefore, I'm asking for your support.
A wave of change is coming! I'm asking you to join it. Please donate what you can. Let's do this together!
