Local Election Candidate for Ballinasloe

Ken is community driven and is looking to re-engage people with political action at a local level to help develop all our towns and villages and their hinterland as accessible, inclusive environments.

Ken is an ardent advocate for children with special needs and a person who believes the family must always come first. As a father of a little girl with special needs he has been active in promoting equality and awareness for all children through his advocate group called “Miles for Emma”.

He is one of four volunteers who launched a new initiative for Ballinasloe called “Accessibility Ballinasloe” – a community group formed to develop the Ballinasloe area as an accessible, inclusive environment which welcomes and supports everyone to live an independent and healthy life regardless of age or disability.

The no-nonsense approach of the Social Democrats has led him to believe that there is an alternative, based on challenging the system in a constructive and professional manner.

Putting People with Disabilities at the Heart of all Decisions...
The Social Democrats are fully committed to ensuring that people with disabilities and Special Needs are a priority in the Councils we serve in.
As a Party, we have signed up to the Disability Federation of Ireland’s campaign #DisabilityVotesCount. We are promising that each of our elected Councillors will campaign on much better access for people with disabilities, ensure their voice is heard in all Council decisions, and ensure a plan is in place for each local authority by 2020 for people with disabilities.

The Social Democrats are committed to prioritising play, sport and recreation for all age levels.
We want to strengthen social infrastructure for everyone, but with a particular focus on the 1.3 million people aged 18 and under in Ireland.
Too often, when we talk about play or recreation facilities, the focus is on young children and playgrounds. We all know that having some down-time is vital for our health – both physical and mental but what about our teenagers?
