I'm delighted to have three enthusiastic supporters join the campaign team for the road to Local Election 2014. These individuals feel as strongly as I do about preserving our local amenities and improving quality of life for our residents, and, like me, they believe this can be accomplished through political action. We'll be out canvassing from now until the election on May 23rd, so please say hello when you see us in your neighbourhood!

Conor is a History and Political Science undergraduate at Trinity College Dublin. Conor moved from Liverpool to Cork with his family at a young age, and has resided in Dublin since 2011. More recently, Conor worked with U.S Congressman Bill Keating's constituency office, during which time he was tasked with preparing several key reports regarding the 2013 budget sequestration, with a particular emphasis on how this event affected the local area of Cape Cod. Conor has a passion for environmental and progressive causes, and is therefore committed to helping Dr. Cara Augustenborg win the Killiney-Shankill seat.
