Let the people decide who they want to run

Dear Sir, FURTHER to the article about my presidential ambitions in the Drogheda Independent â?“ this week, I wish everyone to be aware that I will not be seeking any nominations from county councillors or any other such ilk. I consider the election of a President a matter totally for the electorate only. Therefore, I will rely on popular support only.
So if you feel that you want to select who you think should run without any political trickery going on in the background, then you the person ultimately responsible for the presidential selection by the placing of your vote on the ballot paper, should all write to the editor of the Drogheda Independent indicating who you want on the ballot paper.
I have indicated a sample list below with my own name first. Jim Brady, City of Drogheda, Gerry Floyd, Mell, Drogheda, Jimmy Duffy, Trinity Gardens, Drogheda, Terry Boylan, Windmill Road, Drogheda etc
Remember if enough people write in we can bring back into use the word democracy into political life in Ireland.
Another first for the City of Drogheda â?“ to lead the way nationally.
Yours etc Jim Brady, City of Drogheda
