Green Party’s Steven Matthews and Erika Doyle, Steven’s wife and his General Election 2020 campaign manager

This morning.

As records released by the Oireachtas show that around one in seven TDs has hired family members…

…via Independent.ie:

A new Green Party TD, whose wife has replaced him as a [€17,000 a year] county councillor, has hired her as a [€24,000 -€47,000] secretarial assistant.

[A former Bray Town Councillor, elected to Wicklow County Council in 2014 before his election as Wicklow TD this year] Steven Matthews insisted that his wife, Councillor Erika Doyle, is “more than qualified” and the “best person for the job”.

….Mr Matthews said she received other job offers in the political arena “and I’m delighted she chose to accept mine”.
