Melisa has been a councillor for Dun Laoghaire since 2011. She has played a leading role in many campaigns, both locally and nationally. Melisa has worked with Richard Boyd Barrett TD to campaign for public and affordable housing to be built on public land, for real rent controls and to stop evictions. Locally Melisa is campaigning for the development of the council owned site at George's Place for Public and Affordable Housing.
I want to run a campaign that challenges the interests of the corporations and the rich in Ireland. Neither People Before Profit nor I accept donations from the wealthy instead we rely on working people who share our vision.
If you want to see a working-class fighter elected to local council, someone to stand for the people and planet – not for the big corporations, then please consider donating to my campaign.
Whether you can contribute €5, €10, €20 or €50 your donations will help us fund videos, leaflets, posters and a website to build a campaign that’s puts People Before Profit!
There are other ways you can help our campaign including so please get in touch with our team and together we can put socialist politics on the agenda!
