Theresa O'Donohoe PBP Co.Clare GE 2020 campaign

N.B. Please ensure that all donations respect the Standards In Public Office (SIPO) guidelines for political donations - donors need to disclose their name for donations over €100; max donation is €600 and they cannot be from outside Ireland (you can make your donation private but please fill in your name so our campaign team have it!) All completely anonymous donations will be donated to charity. 

I'm delighted to announce that I'll be running for People Before Profit in #GE2020 in the Clare Constituency.

Over the years I have found myself ever more conscious of our relationships with each other and with our environment. I am drawn to the sustainability dilemma – how do we meet our needs today without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs? It looks like we are failing miserably and that is all down to continued policies that ultimately destroy the economy, communities and the planet.

My priorities for Clare

Clare is right at the forefront of the many challenges and opportunities that this nation is facing right now. From here, we can lead.

We are the county most vulnerable to climate breakdown, with over 5,000 homes at risk from flooding, yet we also have an unprecedented housing crisis that is already affecting life choices, childhoods, physical and mental health.

We have a spread out population but inadequate public transport. A hospital but no A&E. We have land but unjust conditions for farmers. Wind and water yet we are buying in energy. 

In Clare we also have incredible communities, networks of activists; people who understand these pressure points and how to respond.

My job is to empower those people and that expertise. To enable fair solutions, that come right out of the conditions and talent here in Clare. To get social housing built, reinvent Moneypoint and more. To be their Voice inside the Dail.

I'll need your support. I'm asking you to help me by donating what you can to my campaign, a little goes a long way:  A €5 donation can help pay for a poster. A €10 donation can sponsor a Facebook post for a week. A €20 donation can pay for 500 leaflets. With your help, we can build a strong left alternative in County Clare!

Thanks a million 

Theresa
