Hi, my name is Peter Melrose and I am running in the local elections for the Social Democrats in June 2024. I can bring positive change to our area, but I need your help.
My wife Maebh and I moved to Maynooth to start our family. We welcomed our son, Cónan, in August 2023. We love it here, however, we have the same worries as you about our area's childcare, healthcare, and public services. We need a voice on the council that understands the lived experiences of young families, and I can provide that voice.
We do not have the same resources as the big parties, and my campaign will rely entirely on fundraising. Therefore, I am asking you to back me. I need your donation in order to stand a fighting chance of getting elected and representing you and your interests.
Change is within our grasp. I’m asking you to be part of it. Please donate what you can to the campaign.
€10-20 will help me pay for an advert on social media
€50 will help me pay for five election posters
€100 will help me buy leaflets to canvass twenty estates
Together, we can be the change.
IMPORTANT: By donating, you confirm that you are an Irish resident or an Irish citizen living overseas and that you have not exceeded the maximum annual donation to the Social Democrats of €2,500
Donations of €100+ cannot be anonymous and I may require further information from you at a later stage.
The maximum donation I can accept from an individual is €1000 in a year.
