GREENS TO HOLD FERMOY MEETING ON LOCAL ECONOMY
Green Party candidates for both European and local elections will jointly address a public meeting on the economy in Fermoy this week. Green Party European candidate for Ireland South, Senator Dan Boyle will join Fermoy Town Council candidate Adam Douglas at the meeting to be held in the new Adair Hall at 8pm this Friday, February 6.
Mr Douglas, has said he welcomes the opportunity to confront the sobering economic issues facing the town and said the meeting offers an opportunity to look at what can be done from a coordinated local and national approach to put Fermoy ‘back on track.’
“While we intend laying out concrete proposals on how the Greens can better effect proper leadership and develop an enterprise culture at a local level, we also want to hear the concerns of residents and business at this time, which must form the basis of any actions that are taken.
"For too long vested interest groups have shaped local decisions which fly in the face of public wishes, I will use all means at my disposal to bring this to a halt,” Mr. Douglas said.
The Green Party candidate added that change is needed at town council level to bring Fermoy through the current recession.
“A fresh council, which I am more than willing to be a part of, is required this summer as the same people who left this town’s budget in the red in spite of the many good economic years can hardly be trusted to properly guide the town out of this downturn,” he concluded.
