The challenges faced by the Irish people in recent years and in the years to come require bold new thinking and brave new leadership to overcome. Unfortunately Ireland has been let down by successive administrations that lack credible ideas or the integrity to keep to promises made.
Aaron McKenna is at the forefront of a grassroots movement for real change, for new ideas and principled leadership to return our country to prosperity.
Principled leadership that keeps promises. That focuses on outcomes for ordinary people, not on process and special interests. That leads by example. Principled leadership that earns respect through deeds rather than hollow words.
Ireland deserves better.
LIST OF ISSUES
JOBS & THE ECONOMY
Aaron McKenna’s plan to create jobs and stimulate economic growth focuses on creating a truly conducive environment for entrepreneurs and investors while maintaining the strong links to foreign direct investment. Government bureaucracy for the unemployed and entrepreneurs alike will be done away with and foreign investors will be attracted to Ireland with the same drive that we chase FDI today.
The state is not nearly as dynamic, modern or efficient a body as it could or should be. It wastes money, has an endless bureaucracy in places and very often delivers poor results. The approach taken to making cutbacks in the face of crisis has been blunt force trauma. No plan and no backup has led to services worsening far more than they would if politicians could show some real leadership.
Why is our country broken? Why are our public services dysfunctional? Why did government fail us so often even in the good times? Why do most people feel that nothing ever really changes?
The answer is simple: When you keep voting for the same people you keep getting the same results.
Aaron believes in making national issues local and vice versa. The problems in our education system, our healthcare system and so on can be seen at a granular level on the ground in Dublin West. If we look at the effects that national policy have on individuals, we have a chance at actually fixing them.
