Despite receiving considerable support, city resident, Mick Greene has decided against running in May’s local elections. “My priority is to make Kilkenny a better place to live and I don’t need Kilkenny County Council to confer me with the right to do this,” he said.
“ I am driven by a love for my community and have no time for the infighting, ego and envy inherent in politics. A county councillor’s power to effect change has become very limited and I believe that I can be more effective outside that sphere,” he added.
He is instead asking for peoples’ support to: Establish a Suicide Crisis centre in Kilkenny; prevent the construction of the CAS; establish the Youth Mental Health Jigsaw Project in Kilkenny to service the South East; work with groups across Ireland to ensure GridLink Project goes underground and not via pylons; establish a skate park and continue to work with youth projects in Kilkenny; establish an anti-bullying charter for Kilkenny.
