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.

Well its Official Eoghan Murphy TD has signed the Polling Day Order for the 2019 European Parliament & Local Elections.
Date: Fri, May24th
Polling: 7am to 10pm
Counting: Locals -9am Sat May 25th

On May 24th I’ll be your Social Democrats candidate for the Ballinasloe Municipal District.
I've been a member of the party since 2016 and this will be my first time to run for Election, this is also the first time the Social Democrats will contest the Local Elections.

As a candidate I want to re-engage people with political action at a local level.
I challenge all issues I believe to be discriminative or unproductive because I believe we need to see real change in our society, we need to abolish the old style of politics, we need more accountability when it comes to the actions and decisions of our elected representatives.
People are tired of short-term thinking, stroke politics and power that refuses to be held to account.
I’m calling for an open and transparent County Council. Honest politics that works in the best interests of the people and not the party or the selected few.
I want to see Real Change in how we deliver for all the people in Ballinasloe and its Municipal District.

If you want to see that change too then I’m asking you to Vote Ken Campbell No1
