Local Election Candidate for Cobh

Ken is a married father of two girls. He lives in Cobh and plays an active role in the local community through several organisations including Tidy Towns and Cobh People’s Regatta.

He is an experienced campaigner at local and national level, the latest example of this being the key leadership role he played in Yes Equality Cork in the Marriage Equality Referendum.

Ken has been involved in politics all his life and believes that we need a new type of politics based on a vision of open government and the type of public services we as a people so badly need.  He believes the SocDems under the leadership of Catherine Murphy and Róisín Shortall can deliver on that vision while maintaining a strong pro-enterprise economy.

There are under three hours left till polls close. If you haven't voted yet and live in #Cobh #Carrigtwohill #Glounthaune #LittleIsland #Knockraha #Carrignavar #Whitechurch or #Watergrasshill then I would really appreciate your No.1 this evening or if that's already committed your highest available preference.

I believe I can be a highly effective representative for all of the Municipal District but this can only happen if I get enough votes to be elected especially No. 1s. I know based on the reaction I've got on campaign trail a lot of you would like to see me elected, with your No. 1 vote we can potentially make this wish become a reality!

I appreciate any preference but for transfers to make a real difference, I need enough #Cobh 1s.

If you want to see me elected in #LE19 then biggest help you can give me is a No. 1 vote.

Next best after that is encouraging your family & friends to give me their No. 1s as well!

Commentators saying that Dubliners won’t like it when the greens start bringing in more cycle lanes in Dublin haven’t been paying attention to what came up on canvasses for all parties - cycling infrastructure is a big political issue.

@davidmcw that was, respectfully, an unfair and unbalanced thing to say on @MarianRTE there: plenty of Catholics and Protestants live, work, commute and socialise together in the North
