A chara,

I hope that you and your loved ones are keeping well and have had a safe and enjoyable summer. The remaining restrictions continue to be eased across society and the economy, which is testament to the benefits of our successful vaccination programme and the enormous efforts and sacrifices we have made during the past two years.

As we recover from the effects of the pandemic I will continue to advocate for supports for the most vulnerable in our communities in my role as Minister for Community Development and Charities.

It is a privilege to serve the people of Fingal as your TD and to serve the country in my role as Minister of State. If I can ever be of assistance to you please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

Best wishes,

Joe

COVID-19

COVID-19 has drastically changed our world in the last year. I want to thank those who have worked tirelessly on the front line, as essential workers, throughout this crisis and the community volunteers who look after the most vulnerable in society. As we continue to live with COVID-19 I would encourage all to support our communities and the local businesses across Fingal.

Housing-and-Homeless

Housing and Homelessness

We need to do more to provide affordable homes for people, especially our young people. My Green Party colleagues and I are working hard to push for new housing policies, including cost-rental housing at scale to create a sustainable housing supply.

Community-friendly Development

Dublin Fingal needs to develop in a well-planned manner to ensure that our housing, transport, education, childcare and leisure infrastructure are well integrated and designed to nurture community and family life.

A Fair and Sustainable Economy

Our vulnerable economy needs to be strengthened in a very fundamental way. We need to focus on supporting indigenous business and innovation to create higher quality sustainable jobs. The economic adaptations required due to climate change offer opportunities to move the economy away from over dependence on fossil fuel imports, multinationals and the tax we allow them to forgo.
