Independent, Des Guckian, Dromod, has confirmed that he will be a candidate, for the Carrick-on-Shannon Electoral Area, in next May’s local elections.
Des states that he is very opposed to the robbery of rights to which people are, increasingly, being subjected by official callousness.
As an author and a student of history, he describes what has happened to Ireland, of late, as a national catastrophe. He believes that people now have to really stand up for their rights.
“The party system has failed us all” he says “and the Co Council needs much more honest, independent input when it comes to planning, housing, rates, charges, education, childcare, fracking, turf-cutting, faster internet, transport services, Credit Unions, care of the elderly & disabled, etc”.
He asks people to email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
