ISSUES TO BE TACKLED
*One needs only to open papers on a daily basis to witness the catastrophic effect knife / gun / gang and violent crime is having on our neighbourhoods. This is deeply felt amongst the good communities in Dublin West. I intend to address the issues in a real and grown-up manner. It is obvious we need assistance from abroad as we do not have the experience or expertise to deal with these types of crime on a daily basis in our communities. If elected I will pressure the leading political parties to bring in crime experts from England and the US to educate the people. I will also demand that a copy of the expert US TV series The Wire and The Sopranos is delivered to every house in the constituency..
ISSUES TO BE TACKLED
* Wonky pavements.
The age demographic in and around the Dublin West constituency has aged dramatically over the years. Issues such as broken and damaged pavements have come to the fore by becoming a dangerous hazard to citizens as well as being unsightly. I intend to fix this issue once and for all by assigning a Fingal County Council team to the task of eradicating broken paving.
As mentioned before, I work shift. Depending on the Rota, I would be working 1 full week of nights resulting in sleeping of my body between the house of 8 and 5. AM to PM mightened I add. As I’m sure your good selves are aware of, these are the very hours of parking fees in the Griffith Close area. It is of my our viewpoint, that these hours are restrictive and discriminatory on the part of the shift-worker. Why is it that my neighbour, Joe O’Mahony, doesn’t have to pay for parking and I do. Does that sound fair to you? The reason he doesn’t have to pay is because he is an accountant and he works between the aforementioned hours so his car isn’t there mine is. That’s the reason. So I put it to you this, because of my shift patterns, I believe it is incumberant of the council to issue a permit, which will allow all shirt works park their vans where ever they want whenever they are at home. I pledge to tackle this issue!
Presently I work shift work. Now, a lot of my day, as you can imagine is spent in bed. I, like anyone else likes my sleep. Now, cos I work shift, my sleeping hours aren’t on par with the regular day of a regular everyday worker. The point I am making, is regarding the flicker, or ‘strobe effect’ of the afore mentioned street lamp. There’s a gable at the cuff of my driveway that goops out a bit. My issue isn’t with that gable, but it’s certainly a chore to reverse a car past that gable while there’s the equivalent of a rave going on above me. Because I work shifts, I feel I’m alone on this as, like I said, my sleeping hours wouldn’t congrew with that of the everyday man. All of the lights in Griffith Close bar one work perfectly, although there are some that seem a little dim and could warrant a replacement bulb, this however is another days battle. Why is it that the one light that doesn’t work is located directly outside my driveway. This wouldn’t not be a big encumbrance if I wasn’t a shirt worker, but like I said, I am and it is. I pledge to tackle this issue!
