So George Lee the now former Economics Editor of RTÉ will be standing for Fine Gael in the Dublin South By Election.
Personally I am delighted that George is running for us in Dublin. Hes name was mentioned to me on a number of occasions but I was told he turned us down. How wrong those people were!
George Lee is a man with his finger on the pulse of the Irish Economy. He warned us for years, and people ignored him. But he was right. I hope now he can help improve this country and help fix the mess that Fianna Fail have blindly walked us into. We can no longer ignore it!
It wont be an easy election. No by election is. So far there are six declared candidates for the constituency with Fianna Fail to decide tonight. They have to decide between Shay Brennan and Senator Maria Corrigan.
The other declared candidates are Labour Senator Alex White, Sinn Fein’s party publicity officer, Shaun Tracey, the Green Party’s Elizabeth Davidson and Socialist Workers Party’s Malachy Steenson. There is also an independent candidate, Ross O’Mulllane who is basing his campaign on this idea. Not sure where that is going and it will work in practice.
Any way, Vote George Lee Number 1 in Dublin South!
