Hello, I’m David Kane. I’ve been a proud resident of Piltown village for 24 years, deeply engaged in our community’s well-being.

  • Affordable and Social Housing: I will push to address housing issues by tackling vacancy and dereliction, ensuring everyone in our community has access to affordable homes.
  • Traffic Safety: Implementing appropriate traffic-calming measures is crucial for the safety and quality of life in our communities. I’m committed to making our streets safer for all.
  • Youth Engagement: I will lobby for funding to provide positive outlets and activities for our youth, fostering a supportive environment for the next generation.
  • Green Initiatives: Supporting community-driven green initiatives is essential. I aim to promote sustainability through local projects that benefit our environment and economy.
  • Healthcare: Working towards a comprehensive and inclusive healthcare system is paramount. I will advocate for improved local health services to ensure better health outcomes for our community.
