Statement to voters
I ask for your support at this Council election so I can continue to work hard on your behalf. As a sitting Councillor, and former Mayor of Larne, having previously worked in the hospitality sector and for LEDCOM, I am aware of the importance of encouraging and supporting small business to expand and to create jobs. As a former Chair of Economic Growth and Tourism I am committed to encouraging the growing numbers of tourists to stop longer and spend more money in local businesses in Larne and our Coastal Villages.
I have supported the setting up of the local Manufacturing Task Force to help provide advice and support to existing businesses. I will continue to encourage new companies to consider our Borough as a great place to relocate and invest. Through my role as Chair of PEACE IV, I have been working to maximise the benefit to the local community with events such as the Larne Spring Festival.
I am an active member of Larne Foodbank, a director of Mid and East Antrim Agewell Project (MEAAP) who are working to improve the lives of older people. I assist with the Larne Christmas Jingle, supporting the vital work of the NI Children's Hospice. I also serve as a Governor for two local Primary Schools.
The Ulster Unionist goals for Mid & East Antrim are 'Low rates, economic regeneration and improved services.'
I understand that many people are disgusted with local politics after the failure of the last Executive, the RHI scandal, and the continued intransigence of Sinn Fein. Stormont has been wrecked by these continued scandals, self-interest and disrespect.
Vote Ulster Unionist on 2 May to send a clear message that you want a better way forward and don't want your Council brought to its knees in the same way that Stormont was.
Ulster Unionists want to see the Assembly fully working so that the decisions needed to improve our schools and hospitals can be taken now. But it has to be a reformed Stormont with no return to the failures of the last Executive. If Sinn Fein continue to block Stormont's return then we demand Direct Rule now.
The result of the Brexit referendum should be respected and delivered in a way that minimises risks to our economy and jobs and doesn't undermine our place in the United Kingdom.
Our message is clear for Mid and East Antrim and for Northern Ireland that we are the party for the Union. We will continue to promote a positive vision for Northern Ireland that it is inclusive, open and will deliver our long term security within the UK.
With your support, together we can change our community and Northern Ireland for the better.
