MURRAY SUBMITS MOTION ASKING FOR ELECTION JOBS TO BE ADVERTISED

first_imgInishowen Sinn Féin councillor Jack Murray has submitted a motion for debate at Monday’s council meeting which calls for widespread advertising, including in social welfare offices, of election job opportunities.Cllr Murray said: “Hundreds of people are employed in Donegal during every election for duties such as issuing ballot papers and counting votes. However many people are unaware that they can apply for these positions or how to do so.“With such widespread unemployment in Donegal and with so many people who are very capable of such work seeking employment, it is common sense that these positions should be more widely advertised. “I am hopeful that this motion will be successful and that more people will have the opportunity of securing these positions during the election in May.”The motion reads: That Donegal County Council requests that all positions which are to be recruited to staff election day, such as election booths and the count centre, are advertised as widely as possible, including in social welfare offices. MURRAY SUBMITS MOTION ASKING FOR ELECTION JOBS TO BE ADVERTISED was last modified: March 25th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:election jobsJack Murraylast_img
