Catherine Murphy and the new Social Democrats Local Area Representatives
Yesterday was a training day for my role with the Social Democrats. We met at the Maldron in Portlaoise and discussed topics from leaflet design to getting the most our of a press release.
Catherine Murphy TD, co-leader of the party, opened the meeting with an inspiring talk about the importance of keeping in touch with our constituents. She has released a very well designed leaflet/newsletter that really does everything she needs it to do and I’m looking forward to
stealing using some of her ideas.
The wealth of knowledge and experience in the room, from those stood at the front talking us through key points to those of us commenting and joining in, was immense and certainly very useful.
Personally I feel like I learned a lot and have a fair amount of “take home” points to work on which I very much look forward to implementing within my area and bringing to the people of my constituency.
