“WE WANT OUR VOTE”
In May 2019, the people of Limerick said ‘Yes’. We said ‘Yes’ to choosing a new type of mayor, one that has the power and the budget to make Limerick better.
It is almost 1,000 days since the people of Limerick voted to be the first Irish county to elect its own mayor by popular vote. We are still waiting. Every day that passes means another day of lost opportunity for our county and its people. Central government has not prioritised this and is failing Limerick City and County despite the people’s vote. This is not acceptable. We seek urgent action from Government to secure our vote and call on all Limerick public representatives to make this happen early in 2022.
1,000 DAYS, 1,000 VOICES
Today, we are launching the #WeWantOurVote campaign. We call on the people of Limerick to sign our petition to call for our right to choose our new mayor. Every day that passes is a day that Limerick is not being prioritised, blocking the changes needed to provide for a better future. On 17th February 2022 it will be it will be 1,000 days since we said yes to choosing our own mayor. We will not wait another 1,000 days. We need your voice, help us add 1,000 names to our petition. We are calling for our vote before 1,000 days have elapsed. The government knows what needs to be done – they now need to do it!
