Cashels Sinn Féin Councillor Martin Browne has called on local FG TD Tom Hayes to “do the right thing” and support the party’s “Axe the Tax” Bill.

Speaking this week Councillor Browne said:

“The only way the Property Tax can be defeated is by passing Sinn Féin’s ‘Axe the Tax’ Bill which was published by the party’s finance spokesperson Pearse Doherty in the Dáil last week.

“Deputy Tom Hayes knows that hard-pressed families simply cannot take any more taxes, cuts and charges, yet his party persists in pushing those families further to the brink with this unfair Property Tax.

“There are alternatives that do not involve targeting struggling home-owners. Sinn Féin has put forward these proposals time and time again. They are credible, they are workable, but most importantly they are fair.

“I am calling on Deputy Hayes to do the right thing by the people of Cashel and surrounding areas who elected him and support Sinn Féin’s ‘Axe the Tax’ Bill when it comes to a vote in the Dáil in July.”
