Mary Davis for President video May 26, 2011

A video from Mary Davis who is seeking a nomination to run in the upcoming Presidential Election as an independent candidate.
She is best known for her role with The Special Olympics.
Her website

The blurb with the Video states…

My background is defined by a lifetime of work with local, national and international voluntary organisations, from my time as a teacher in St. Michael’s House in Ballymun to my current role as the Managing Director of Special Olympics Europe/Eurasia, working across 58 countries.

It is this breadth of experience that I bring to this campaign, and I hope to have the opportunity to put this before the people in the autumn of this year.
I want to play a leadership role in making change happen, to inspire reform and renewal at home whilst rebuilding our place in the wider world. To be a practical President, in the service of the Irish people.

I will be travelling the country in the coming weeks, seeking the support of local representatives to secure a nomination for President. But I will need your help too. So please, sign up and get involved. Get in touch with your ideas and lets begin a campaign about the kind of future we can create together.
