New to politics, I decided to join Aontu and get active as I found no other political alternative to trust with my vote again.
The only principled TD I saw in the Dail was Peadar Toibin, who has consistently held the government to account over the last several years.
After many years of FF & FG lead governments, Ireland finds itself in an "omni-crisis" of issues from housing, healthcare, immigration & cost of living, but none of these are beyond fixing, they just lack the political will & fresh ideas to make it happen.
We need to build at least 50,000 housing units a year, putting state backed funding in place to achieve this at scale.
We should include the thousands of existing homeless people in our emergency response to refugees seeking shelter, to avoid creating division.
We need to get tougher on crime, ending the revolving door of light sentencing for repeat offenders.
Our prisons are now full & new ones are urgently needed.
A vote for James will also ensure that parental rights in the education of our children are respected.
Schools should never be forced to teach subjects that conflict with their values or ethos.
Aontu is the only party that represents my core values of human decency & common sense, we will stay true to our values and never change them based on the latest opinion polls. We will challenge the political establishment & we will represent you.
James is married with 3 children and lives in Dublin, he works in financial services.
