Kenny added to Fianna Fail ticket for Offaly Local Elections
Banagher man Alan Kenny has been added to the Fianna Fáil ticket for the upcoming Local Elections in May.
The decision was made by party headquarters to complete their election ticket in the Birr Electoral Area.
The Banagher native joins Cllr Eamon Dooley, Bernie Fanneran and Cllr Peter Ormond on the ballot paper for the local elections which will take place on Friday, May 24.
Speaking after the announcement on Friday last, Alan stated that he has been secretary of Banagher Cumann for the last couple of years and he was "honoured and excited" to be added to the Fianna Fáil ticket.
"I am looking forward to canvassing and meeting constituents in the next number of weeks. The town of Banagher had no candidate in the last local elections and the town of Banagher and surrounding areas has suffered as a result of not having its own public representative," Alan commented.
"I want to ensure that the town of Banagher and surrounding areas are well represented and their views are put on the floor of council meetings."
"The issues that are close to my heart are town and rural regeneration, crime, public order and job creation," Alan stated.
"If elected, I will work full-time as a public representative and give all my time and energy to representing the people."
