Name: Ben Slimm
Preferred pronouns: He/Him
Local electoral area: Tralee
Is this your first time running? Yes
What are your reasons for running as a young person in politics:
I’m running for election because I feel that my generation doesn’t have a voice in our local area. Kerry was devastated during the economic collapse and many people my age left and are yet to return.
I want to work to make Tralee an attractive town for people to live work and study, by bringing more business into our town centre, improving our health services and holding local government to account.
