Ulster Unionist Party Councillor Darryl Wilson is relishing the challenge of representing the people of Ballymoney and the surrounding areas in the new Causeway Coast and Glens District Council.
Cllr Wilson said “It has been a hectic but thoroughly enjoyable 10 months since the local government elections in May 2014. Almost instantly the Causeway Coast and Glens Council started to meet in shadow form , carrying out work in preparation for the switch over on April 1st 2015.”
“The new council has been a steep learning curve , and there have been many challenges over the last 10 months , nevertheless the shadow period has been invaluable and indeed a critical part of preparing to change how local government operates”
“I have greatly enjoyed my constituency work since being elected . Helping local people and local groups is the most fulfilling part of my work. Tackling problems with an honest , hard working and proactive approach has paid off so far . I can not always guarantee success , but I can guarantee that I will give my all to make sure that local people’s issues and problems are dealt with effectively and efficiently “
“The local Ulster Unionist grouping work well as a team , we regularly tackle issues as a collective, my colleague from Ballymoney Cllr Tom McKeown has a wealth of experience from serving on Ballymoney Council and will be invaluable when the new Council has legacy issues to consider. We also receive additional support from our North Antrim MLA Robin Swann “
“Together we will strive to deliver a better place to live for everyone in our area . Doing what’s right for the Causeway Coast and Glens “
