My vision is for an inclusive Dublin, an international city where all can share in the benefits of continued change, growth and expansion.
In a time of unprecedented change, tackling the following issues will be key to Dublin’s future:
Ø The redeployment challenge posed by artificial intelligence and robotics technology.
Ø The educational challenge posed by the population surge of young people born this century - 50,000 new college places needed by 2028 nationwide.
Ø Continuing lost opportunities in the education of Dubliners – 16% of school leavers in Dublin 10 go to college, 99% in Dublin 6.
Ø The potential jobs impact of recent US tax changes and Brexit affecting foreign direct investment.
We need to ensure that in 2050 Dubliners do not tell a tale of two cities – the knowledge worker and the redundant unskilled worker. If elected to council, I will work with you to address these challenges and help guide the future for ALL Dubliners.
