'More women please!' says Valerie McNulty

Enniskillen Chapter Participant announces intention to run in 2019 elections

Valerie Mc Nulty - Donegal Community Activist and Next Chapter participant announcing her intentions to run in the Donegal local elections 2019.

“I am a Ballyshannon based community activist running as an independent candidate in the local election in May 2019, seeking election in the Donegal Municipal district. Over the last years I have been working on several community campaigns so as to bring about positive change for the residents of our area. Having been approached from a number of people to contest, and with further encouragement from friends and family, I am now announcing my intention to seek election as an independent candidate. There are a number of reasons for my candidacy, I have worked side by side with my community in numerous campaigns including the fight against water charges and the campaign against bank evictions and I am proud of our achievements to date.

I joined The Next Chapter programme not knowing exactly what I could either contribute or attain from it, however I am delighted to have this opportunity which I have found it to be very inspiring, educational and encouraging. I'm absolutely blown away at the experience and expertise of the facilitators and tutors and I am delighted to learn and grow more in my Political Stance, in our Chapter Hub and in our Community. More women please!”

Thanks to Valerie for taking the time to write this testimonial.
