Member of the European Parliament
Maria has been a Fine Gael member of the European Parliament for Midlands North-West since 2019. She always takes stances on policy and legislation that align with her values of inclusion, equality, and respect, even if this entails some difficult conversations with her EPP Group colleagues. Maria has often advocated for the inclusion of younger people in politics, which spurred her to run for office herself. She is a firm believer that it is crucial for politicians to be representative of their electorate, with greater representation of people from black and minority ethnic backgrounds, LGBTI people, and equal gender parity.
