Working to keep our streets and communities safe.
Pat number one priority is ensuring that there are real solutions provided to the Housing crisis in Wicklow/East Carlow. He has worked on this since becoming Fianna Fáil spokesperson on Housing and Urban Renewal and strongly believes that by bringing urban renewal back into our Town Centres we can also provide solutions to our Housing needs.
Pat is also working to ensure that ALL of Wicklow/East Carlow benefits from the economic recovery and not just a select few. He is concentrating on ensuring that there are more locally based jobs in Wicklow/East Carlow to allow for a better work life balance for Wicklow families and commuters and that the threats from Brexit are minimised.
Pat is passionate about rural development having lived and worked in rural Wicklow all his life. Rural Wicklow and Carlow are central to the economic development of the region as a whole and broadband provision and the retention of our rural post office network are just two of the areas that Pat is concentrating on.
Pat also believes strongly in empowering people and communities by cutting out unnecessary red tape and making it easier for communities, small businesses and ordinary people to access the resources they need and to access investment to grow the services they offer.
Pat has also locally based priorities in all areas of Wicklow/East Carlow which can be accessed here.
