James Hope is a teacher and human rights activist who lives in Tyrone. A former Student Union President and member of the Green Party, James joined the Aontú political movement to inject change into Irish politics across the 32 counties. A long-standing Aontú member who is determined to give a voice to the communities of Tyrone long since forgotten by Stormont.
James has previously fought to represent Tyrone in the MP Elections in 2019, and will be as an effective voice for change and job creation for West Tyrone. James shas raised the shocking cut in more than 800 beds cut from the healthcare service, the day long waiting times in regional hospitals, and the cost of living crisis drowning working families.
An Teachta Tóibín: “James Hope is a lifelong political and human rights activist, who is tired of the Stormont Executive failing our communities. Families across the country are facing crises in healthcare, in education, in cost of living. James will lead the fight to afford political representation to the communities of Tyrone. James will fight further cuts to our healthcare service, and fight to restore healthcare capacity He will also champion tax harmonisation, and policies to reduce the cost of living hammering working families. James fully supports Integrated Education but opposed the SF/SDLP/Alliance Bill which will reduce funding to local Catholic and Controlled Schools. All schools and pupils should be equally treated by the state. We have fought long enough for parity of esteem to reverse it now. Aontú offers an real alternative. Aontú offers a vote for change”.
