Secret deal between City Council and Greyhound Recycling dirty politics

Secret deal between City Council and Greyhound Recycling dirty politics

Local election candidate for Pembroke South Dock Wayne Flanagan Tobin has said the secrecy of a deal struck between Dublin City Council and Greyhound recycling demonstrates the need to clean up local government. This is given the amount of dishonesty in local government from planning zonings and’ brown envelope politics’ facilitated by unelected officials hell bent on keeping the public misinformed. This is why as a young person I am standing in the election to clean up local government and make it more transparent.

Secret deal between City Council and Greyhound Recycling dirty politics

Local election candidate for Pembroke South Dock Wayne Flanagan Tobin has said the secrecy of a deal struck between Dublin City Council and Greyhound recycling demonstrates the need to clean up local government. This is given the amount of dishonesty in local government from planning zonings and’ brown envelope politics’ facilitated by unelected officials hell bent on keeping the public misinformed. This is why as a young person I am standing in the election to clean up local government and make it more transparent.

Mr. Flanagan Tobin said:

“As usual it is the taxpayer who is expected to pick up the bill for these secret deals and in this case the bill could be €9m. This is at a time when households are being hit with the property tax, water metres, increased waste charges, cuts across the board. Families across my constituency have had enough of the “same old politics as usual” and like me want and end to secret deals and cronyism”.

Mr Flanagan Tobin said:

“I am calling on the immediate release of the contracts between both DCC and Greyhound Recycling so I can examine them in consultation with my legal team. As a young person I have a right to demand the values of honesty are upheld in public office and call on all city councillors to immediately demand the release of the contracts.”

Wayne Flanagan Tobin concluded:

“Since the privatisation of the waste collection service we have seen more bin trucks than ever before and while the charges have steadily risen, bin bags have got smaller. We need to clean up politics in Dublin and that is exactly what I intend to do if elected next May”.

Wayne, thank you for being so-proactive on this. It will be remembered...
