At a meeting of members on Monday 27th August People Before Profit Dublin Mid West selected two candidates to run in the local elections in May 2019.
The sitting councillor for Clondalkin LEA Madeleine Johansson was selected to stand in the new Fonthill-Palmerstown LEA which takes in the areas of North Clondalkin, Palmerstown and South East Lucan. Clondalkin native and local activist Kevin Creagh was selected to stand in the Clondalkin LEA.
Cllr Madeleine Johansson said: “I am honoured to have been selected by our members to contest the next local election. I have been representing the population of Clondalkin for the past 2 years and will continue to work very hard to represent the whole of Clondalkin, as well as the additional areas of Palmerstown and South East Lucan. We need a strong left on the council to be the voice for ordinary people and to expose the establishment parties.“
Clondalkin local area representative Kevin Creagh commented: “I have lived in Clondalkin all my life and I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to stand for election to represent my area. There is a great community spirit in the area but unfortunately that is not matched by adequate local services and amenities. People Before Profit is a radical party that believes in People Power as the path to change, and that’s what I want to represent.”
