A politician who cares, and fights for what he cares about, John McGuinness puts as much energy into his constituency as he does into his work as a legislator in the Dail.
"All politics is local, and community is very important" he says "What I learn from the people in my constituency enormously informs what I do as a legislator. Anyone looking at my record in the Dail or in my constituency will see that I put my life and soul into what I do. That is what you have to do in politics, and sometimes it is not easy, or popular”
In recent times John was one of two or three politicians in the Dail who successful fought to get Maurice McCabes story heard. And, as Chairman of the Finance Committee, he was in the forefront of those seeking justice for tracker mortgage holders and those fighting for their families against the banks.
Hugely experienced, resolute and straight talking, John McGuinness is there to help those he represents in any way he can. Locally and nationally, he is formidable advocate and a strong voice for the rights and freedoms of the people he serves.
John's mobile phone number is public property and he runs clinics throughout the constituency on a regular, organised basis, including one in his office in Kilkenny every Saturday. That office is open six days a week, and Sandra and Catherine are there to help you with advice and assistance.
On your side, John McGuinness will advise you, stand up for you and go hard miles for you.
