ARTHUR J Spring TD was selected on Monday evening at the Kerry Labour Party Convention in Tralee, as the candidate to represent the party in the next general election.
Deputy Arthur Spring was the sole candidate going forward for nomination at the convention which was chaired by Cork-based Senator John Gilroy.
“I am honoured to be selected tonight as the Labour Party candidate to contest the next general election in Kerry,” said Deputy Spring. “I am determined to contest the election and retain a seat in the new constituency of Kerry.
I would like to thank the members, supporters, family and friends who attended the convention and the enthusiasm shown makes me more determined to get elected. As a government and a Labour Party TD, I am proud to have played a role to date in the recovery and I will be asking the people of Kerry, whose sacrifices made this turn around possible, to give me their number one vote to ensure that the future holds better days for themselves and their families.”
