Cardiac campaigner Cllr Shanahan says he doesn’t care if he is perceived as a “one-policy candidate.”
The Waterford City and County Councillor this morning declared that he will run as an independent candidate in the General Election.
Cllr Shanahan says he will campaign to lessen inequalities between the South East and the rest of the country.
“I don’t care what I’m perceived as,” Cllr Shanahan said to WLR. I’m here about Waterford.
“If people are passionate about Waterford and the way we’re being treated, that’s why you are voting for me.”
On his Facebook page he writes,
“I have today announced my intention to stand in the upcoming General Election as an Independent candidate for Waterford City & County. I want a fully funded Hospital and 24/7, a funded Waterford University and a strategic task force to re-breathe life into the Waterford city & county economy. I am offering my experience as a commercial business person, my work in the renewable energy, retail and healthcare sectors and my community work as proof of my capability and commitment to represent the people of Waterford.”
