Longford/Westmeath Fine Gael TD, Gabrielle McFadden, has urged Westmeath and Longford people to help Fine Gael keep the recovery going when they go to vote this Friday , February 26th.
“The economy is heading in the right direction and Fine Gael wants to reward middle income families in this constituency for their hard work during difficult times
“I appeal to people when they go to vote this Friday to help keep the recovery going, a recovery brought about by their hard work. Fine Gael has a plan to keep the recovery going based on three simple steps; more and better jobs, making work pay and investing in better services.
“Over the last five years, this Government has delivered for Westmeath and Longford. When it comes to schools, sports clubs, roads, investing in An Garda Siochana, or supporting major projects like Center Parcs, Fine Gael has prioritised investment in this constituency.
“Since the Action Plan for Jobs was launched in 2012, the number of people signing on the Live Register in Westmeath and Longford has dropped by 19.5% and 25% respectively. This constituency needs to have its voice continue to be heard from within Government; otherwise the continued investment needed for both counties will be put at risk.
“Fine Gael’s Long Term Economic Plan will help create an additional 200,000 jobs over the next five years, and we want to bring 70,000 emigrants home. It is only by keeping the recovery going and continuing to create jobs that we will be able invest in better services and improve living standards for everyone.”
