Independent Candidate, Sean O’Sullivan, declares his intention to run in the forthcoming 2019 Local Council Elections
AS an Independent candidate in the forthcoming Council elections in the North East Ward, Sean O’Sullivan is looking forward to setting out on the campaign trail, calling door-to-door and listening to the issues that affect people in the constituency as a community activist.
Sean recently launched his election manifesto in Glanmire and spoke passionately about many issues close to his heart that he would like to resolve in his local community.
‘‘Glanmire has for many years been overlooked as a growing satellite town – with a population of over 22,000 – for essential services,’’ he said. “It is time for an Independent Voice at Council level.”
With regards to the promise of a new Garda station for the area, he said that a site had been identified but unfortunately has never been delivered.
‘‘There’s a need for a new community centre, this has been promised but again, never delivered. Also a Health Centre has been overlooked and there should be a focus on infrastructure to cater for heavy traffic demand with the building of 650 houses in Glanmire.’’
Sean O’Sullivan has been involved in the print and radio media for over thirty years and is a former PRO of Glanmire GAA Club and is PRO of Glanmire Ladies Basketball Club.
He is also PRO and Event Co-Ordinator of the Glanmire Over-60s heat and is involved in sport, business and community life in Glanmire and district for many years, and in the North East Constituency.
Sean has in the past been the main organiser of the very successful Fitzgerald’s Vienna Woods Hotel Awards scheme where many sportspersons have been awarded for their outstanding achievements in various sporting areas and with community and business people.
On his election literature, Sean says, ‘‘let’s work together for the sake of our communities and give it a voice at Cork City Council level; after all, it’s all about the community we live in.’’
Sean is building his election campaign on community issues such as:
• Independent voice for the elderly and marginalised in our society.
• Promoting youth and student interests.
• Improving road, bus and rail access systems for all residents in the North East Ward.
• Improving our sporting infrastructure.
• Independent voice for SMES – small indigenous businesses are our future.
• Supporting local enterprise – we must work together to build a better future.
• Helping people to get back to work.
He says that the population needs to support the new half hourly bus service.
Sean O’Sullivan, your Independent voice cannot promise, but will work extremely hard for the community and asks you to give him your No. 1 vote or your transfers in Elections in 2019.
In 2014 Mr. O’Sullivan went very close to securing a seat in the present County Council, with the late Claire Cullinane securing the seat.
“My work has already started and I intend to run an intensive campaign in 2018/2019. I will shortly be opening an constituency office in Glanmire and Mayfield,” said Mr. O’Sullivan.
