In response to the Castleisland Tidy Towns appeal we carried in The Maine Valley Post yesterday on the issue of postering in the run up to the May 24th election, Charlie Farrelly has put a call out to his fellow candidates.
Respect the Wishes
“I will be only to happy to respect the wishes of the very hard working Tidy Towns committee.
If all candidates in the Castleisland Electoral Area would agree, I am suggesting that no posters at all be erected during the forthcoming campaign for the reasons that Mary has suggested in her article,” said Charlie.
Forego Postering Completely
Charlie rang today to say that he’s more than willing to forego postering completely if an agreement can be reached with the other candidates in the local elections.
And remember that the high carbon foot printed members and hopefuls of the European Parliament or MEPs must also be factored into this poster ban campaign.
Running with the Ball
He may not have suggested it in the first place but Charlie is now running with this particular ball and calling out his fellow candidates to do likewise.
Talking and making speeches about the environment and climate change is one thing, taking the first small steps towards doing something about it is another matter entirely.
Poster Ban in Newcastle West
Politicians in Limerick around the entire Newcastle West Municipal District have all agreed to a blanket ban on postering throughout the area according to Limerick County Councillor, Michael Collins – who also responded to The Maine Valley Post appeal.
