Her experience with community organisations, has assured her that great things can be achieved where communities work together for their socio‑economic well-being.
At a time when the gender imbalance in the Dail is becoming more pronounced, it is refreshing that a young, vibrant woman such as Aine Collins is willing to stand for election and she is seeking your support.
Some very good reasons why you should give your No 1 Vote to Aine:
- Aine brings a new enthusiasm and vigour to Politics- she is not encumbered by tradition or stale thinking.
- She has the qualifications and experience that are necessary for her to make a meaning full contribution to “kick starting” the economy. Her knowledge of the small business sector and small enterprises makes her ideally suited to represent your community.
- She is a family person with three Children and knows full well the problems that every family is currently experiencing.
- She is a New Candidate with a New Vision for a New Era and is worthy of your No 1 Vote.
Aine fully appreciates that this is a very difficult election for many people; with incomes cut drastically in the past 3 years, jobs for your young people being non existence and many families under severe financial pressure as a consequence of the total mismanagement of our economy by Fianna Fail over the past 10 years.
That’s another reason why we need new thinking and a fresh approach to politics so please support Aine by giving her your No. 1 vote on February 25th and continue your preferences for Derry Canty and Michael Creed.
