Letterkenny man Kevin Bradley has launched his campaign to be elected as an independent to Donegal County Council.
A large crowd gathered at the Orchard Inn for the launch on Friday night which was first addressed by Boyd Robinson, the director of elections for the campaign. He spoke about Kevin’s history in business from when he started working at 10 years of age by delivering milk with Ferry’s.
He also spoke about Kevin’s interests outside of work being a big supporter of Finn Harps, St Eunan’s GAA club and his main love, rallying.
On whether or not Mr Bradley would get elected Mr Robsinon said the fact that he had lost 14 stone in a 12-month period, showing that when presented with a challenge he has no fears and will accomplish any feat.
Mr Robinson revealed Kevin’s poster for the election campaign and slogan which is: “Your Local Man That Can Deliver”.
He said Kevin has delivered all his life throughout Donegal and will again deliver in this election.
Mr Bradley addressed the support and thanked all his followers and all the people who have sent him good wishes.
He spoke about how passionate he was as a town member born and bred and how he feels the town is in need of a strong business voice in the council chamber.
Mr Bradley spoke about his mandate listing out areas he wishes to address if elected including trying to bring life back into the centre of the town through offering incentives for businesses to locate in the town centre. He also spoke of a need to improve the Market Square and bring it back to its original as a hub of Letterkenny town.
He said he would lobby to ensure that secondary road access roads to Letterkenny would be treated in the same manner as the main access routes to the town and also said he would strive to improve recreational facilities around the housing estates in the Letterkenny area.
