Why I would make a good trustee: ( less than 200 words ) 198
I appeal for your vote and if elected you may justifiably repose confidence, reliability and trust in me to act in a responsible way to represent the best interests of all members. I will try to ensure that the return on assets invested will be sufficient to pay the pensions and entitlements of all members. I am aware of the trauma that pensioners are going through and of concerns of working staff about future benefits. Substantial fees to financial advisors and investment managers must be justified by better returns on the assets invested. An improved consultation process between the fund management committee and all members is required.
On a personal front my commitments are as follows:
Trustee of the Medical Provident Fund.
Committee member of the Retired Staff Association, Cork Branch.
Executive committee member Passage West GAA Club.
Chairman Community Group of the Harbour Parishes Assembly.
Delegate to Diocesan Committee for Eucharistic Congress 2012.
Members Forum Educational Building Society.
Fellow of the Institution of Engineering & Technology.
Former Chairman TEEU Supervisor Branch.
Hoping the above is useful in deciding your voting preference and give me a vote if I can contribute to the trusted administration of the Fund.
