INDEPENDENT candidate Robin Wilson has received a massive boost to his General Election campaign after receiving the endorsement of the local Dundalk People Before Profit Alliance at their weekly meeting in the Redeemer Resource Centre last week.
The 37-year-old from Market Street in Dundalk is running as an independent candidate in the election and is campaigning on a wide range of issues. One of his many campaign issues involves his belief that Ireland should leave the euro and return to the pound while he is also advocating the reopening of services in the Louth County Hospital.
Robin, a graduate of both DIT and the University of Montpellier in France, was a late entrant to the General Election race in this constituency but has received a huge boost by the People Before Profit group’s endorsement.
The local alliance is continually growing in size and even considered running an election candidate themselves. Having decided not to do so, the group said they would publically back another candidate and on Wednesday last they decided on Wilson.
In a statement on the matter, the group said: “Robin Wilson is running as an independent and has attended many People Before Profit Dundalk meetings in the past. It is clear to attendees that Robin shares many of our values regarding accountability, equality and the fight against greed and corruption.
“Meeting attendees were impressed by his broad knowledge on economic issues as well as the fact that he is young and has a clean reputation.
“We would strongly advise Dundalk voters to give Robin your number one vote. In Robin the people of Dundalk have a young man willing to stand up against corruption and greed and willing to make every effort to ensure that the only interests served by government are the interests of the people.”
