The Limerick City Labour Party has unanimously selected sitting TD Jan O’Sullivan as their general election candidate at a selection convention chaired by Deputy Alan Kelly last night.
Speaking after her selection, Deputy O’Sullivan said the Labour Party stood for integrity and true respect for all citizens.
“Limerick is on its way; we have made great strides in bringing jobs but there are still many communities left behind, there is still a crisis in the emergency department at UHL, the M20 has been promised but not yet progressed and the National Planning Framework is not strong enough in its ambition for Limerick, to say the least.”
“I want to fight these battles. I have the experience and passion to do so. Limerick needs a Labour Voice in the Dáil. Unlike those on the hard left we don’t just shout about what’s wrong, we get stuck in and do something about it, in Government and in Opposition.”
Her selection was proposed by Labour Party Constituency Youth Officer Conor Sheehan who said: “We have enormous potential to build the decent society we all want to live in. That potential is being squandered away by this ramshackle minority government through regressive budgets that have failed to properly fund the infrastructure we need.”
“Limerick needs Labour and Labour needs Jan O’Sullivan in the next Dáil,” he declared.
