Reassigning Kildare South Constituency from Laois Constituency
After several requests from residents of Churchtown, Castlemitchell, Kilberry, Kildangan, Monastrevin and all surrounding Townlands the Labour Party Branch in Athy and Kildare South have decided to progress with a petition to revert our General Election area back to Kildare from Laois.
It makes no sense whatsoever to have people in Kildare voting for Laois Candidates in a General Election, especially as they are represented at Council level by Kildare County Council. We need to change this now.
We are running a two pronged petition, one on social media and the other is door to door calling over the coming days and weeks. We would dearly appreciate your support.
We the undersigned urgently request that our General Election Electoral area be reverted to the County of Kildare.
We did not agree to have our vote moved into the Laois constituency ,we were never consulted and feel that as Residents of Kildare that our interests are best served in this County .
