Mona Stromsoe

Midleton LEA - Cork County Council

Living in Midleton for the past 30 years, Mona Stromsoe is running for election because, through her volunteer work offering practical support to young families, she has seen first-hand the lack of resources for some in our society.

Mona believes in an Ireland where human rights and equality are respected and protected for all.

She joined Aontú because she wants to bring politics back to grassroots where local issues are as important as national issues.

In Cork, Aontú have been involved in many campaigns to save local services including fishing, health, fire and garda services, we have also been involved in the national Save Our Hospital’s campaign.

Mona's Local Election Leaflet

The Irish political system is radically broken

In Ireland the vast majority of elected representatives put a finger in the air to check which way the political wind is blowing. They have one eye on their leaders – seeking brownie points – and another eye keeping their seat safe. If elected reps shut up and do as they’re told, they are promoted; if they stand up for what they believe in, they are demoted. No wonder we have the political class we have. No wonder one point one billion euro is being buried in a hole under the National Children’s Hospital and that Stormont is in stalemate.

Throughout Ireland, many people are now afraid to say what they feel, many are afraid to respectfully engage on a range of different topics. Many feel there is a new censorship and a new political correctness in Ireland, that opposition to the establishment is being deleted.

Respectful opposition is not the enemy. Respectful opposition is a critical element of a functional democracy. Aontú will have the backbone to stand up, without fear, for you.
