Local Election Candidate for Dun Laoghaire

Dave Quinn has lived in Dun Laoghaire Monkstown for over 20 years, raising a family of four children. Dave is an engineering graduate from Trinity College and he started a computer software company in 1980 and he employs people locally.

Along with other local parents, he helped start The Red Door in 2001, a special school for children with autism. Dave is a Board member of Inclusion Ireland, the national organisation representing people with intellectual disabilities. Dave is also an active member of Basic Income Ireland advocating for basic income as a means to modernise our tax and social welfare systems for the benefit of all. He also sings in the local choir – badly!

Dave was drawn to the Social Democrats because of their values and their ambitions of equality, respect and fairness – all achieved through a prosperous economy that protects and nurtures the environment. Community well-being and inclusion are Dave’s priority. Dave believes in the 4 pillars to the State supporting respect and well-being for all citizens – education, health services, housing and income.

Dave joined the SocDems 3 years ago and is currently the Dun Laoghaire branch’s representative on the Social Democrats’ Council.

We are where we are from applying Old Politics to New situations.

It's great to be told we are "In Recovery" or "a Growing Economy", but...

Huge Mental Health crisis
Huge Housing and Homelessness crisis
High Suicide rate
Failing Community Care Services
Squandering Public Funds
The laggards of Europe on Climate Change and Biodiversity response
Dreadful supports for our Disabled and Ageing community

We have become an Economy, and moved away from being a Society.
A bouyant prosperous and growing economy should benefit society with appropriate and adequate Public Services to meet the needs.

#DisabilityVotesCount #SocDems #LE19

If you have a disability, a friend or family member with a disability, or you simply care about equality, I strongly urge anyone in Dun Laoghaire to vote number 1 for @DaveQSocDemsDLR tomorrow. You'd do well to find anyone who genuinely cares more about this.
