Ó Domhnaill Launches Personal Manifesto for Donegal
Candidate Outlines his “Positive Agenda for the Future of Donegal”
With Senator Marc MacSharry and former Minister for Finance Ray MacSharry
He also said that because he wanted to see a return to jobs and growth, he would support the multi year budget plan, adding “This means I will have to support many unpopular choices – but I will not join the other candidates in pretending that these choices can be avoided.”
“The vote we cast in the bye-election is vital for the future of Donegal and Ireland. The problems faced by our country are too serious for politics as usual.
“I believe that we need politicians who are focused on trying to overcome these problems not ones who are focused on trying to exploit them. That’s why I have published this personal manifesto.
“The people of Donegal South West need someone who will fight for our futures. We need someone who puts them first, then country, then party. We need someone who can persuade, influence and make the case for Donegal South West at the highest levels.
“I believe that working with the people of Donegal South West, we can lead a recovery in the constituency
“Because I believe we must act to restore the national finances before we can again see jobs and growth I am very clearly saying I will support the proposed multi-year budget plan. This means I will have to support many unpopular choices – but I will not join the other candidates in pretending that these choices can be avoided.”
Senator Ó Domhnaill believes that even in the hardest of times there are still opportunities to influence decisions in favour of Donegal: “When this recession came we were still suffering from the historical impact of the troubles on border counties. Donegal has many arguments to support its case for priority and I will work tirelessly to bring these arguments to every level of government.
“This document is my personal manifesto. It sets out my priorities if I’m elected. Each key element of it is achievable within the likely spending elements of the 4-year budget. I believe that we must have ambition and vision for the future of Donegal.
“Mine is a positive agenda which sees Donegal as a great county which can achieve a lot if it gets the priority it deserves.”
