Timmins and Blake are selected by FG
COUNCILLORS Edward Timmins and Vincent Blake have been chosen as the Fine Gael candidates to contest the local elections in the Baltinglass Electoral Area.
Cllr. Timmins of Dunlavin and Cllr. Blake of Tinahely both currently sit on Wicklow County Council.
Deputy Andrew Doyle has already offered his support to both candidates and considers the pair to be a strong ticket for west Wicklow.
'I am very pleased with the candidates that have been selected by Fine Gael as it's a very experienced combination. Both candidates have a proven track record of results as ongoing Councillors in the area.
Cllr. Blake currently represents the Arklow electoral area of Wicklow County Council but changes made to the local electoral boundaries last year means Tinahely will be included as part of the Baltinglass electoral area in the upcoming local elections.
