Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I am Shawn Costello, This is my 30th year being on the ballot running for office in the city of Dublin. That being said, no matter which office I run for, my goals are the same, to make Dublin the best city in the state. We need to cut down or stop all the growth happening in Dublin, it is really getting out of hand, the developers are taking over our city. All the new Apartments and town homes are priced for the wealthy, and not for persons with disabilities and low income. We are running out of water for residents and businesses, the more residential we build is making it hard on water supply, and traffic overload for the city. As I said 30 years ago, all that drive vehicles needs to slow down and not be in such a rush, people in crosswalks should not have to worry about there safety of being hit by vehicles.


I think it is very important that all Firefighters,Policemen, and all other emergency personnel, feel safe in our city without being injured from violent acts of crime,

Everyone is talking about new schools, well why don't we do something about it. As we are growing we need better schools and even more we need better teachers to make our children smarter and feel safer in classes for our children, the teacher's, and emergency personnel, they all play a huge role in our cities future.
