For those of you that do not know me, my name is Binksy and I am a 8 term Congressman and 3 time Party President of Independent voices running as the incumbent from (The North East). For those of you who have supported me throughout my tenure in Congress and those who voted last time you have my sincere thanks and gratitude.
I have had a spell of inactivity recently which will cease now for at least one month.
With this, my ninth campaign I would like to outline a few key points to my constituency in regards to my record.
- I have served four cabinets holding three ministry's and three deputy positions.
- I am active in the media, forums (both party and public) and will continue to carry your concerns to the Dáil and beyond.
I have achieved a great deal in my eLife and I am humbled by the fact that none of it would have been possible without your support. You are the key to my continued success and it is my honor to serve and if you will have me, I would like nothing more than to continue that service.
You will see no campaign promises here. It is my firm belief that a true servant of the people does not make mere promises; they make commitments. My commitment to you is to represent you in voice, action and leadership by example.
I’m a man of few words but I am committed to representing your concerns as strongly and loud as need be to make sure you are heard over the din of political static.
I know your time is valuable so I will close by saying it would be my honour to earn your vote.
