Alliance has officially launched its candidates for the forthcoming local government election, with Councillor Chris McCaw saying it is a chance for voters to demand better of their representatives and Council.

The party will be running six candidates across Causeway Coast and Glens, with Councillor Chris McCaw, the current Alliance Councillor, saying the fact candidates came from all walks of life gave them vital experience.

“Faith in local politics has never been lower. But Alliance knows better is possible. However, it is not inevitable – to achieve it, people need to vote for it. Councils remain the one tier of local government which is delivering for people, with our aim across Causeway Coast and Glens to continually stand up for what is right. However, with increased Alliance representation, we can make it deliver better.

“Across the 11 Council areas, Alliance candidates include health workers, youth workers, office workers, students, teachers, parents, carers, farmers, retired people, dentists, construction workers, solicitors, lecturers, volunteers, business people, community campaigners, an ex-RAF serviceman and many others. They are regular people, from a whole range of different backgrounds, who live and work in their community, who share the same hopes and fears for the future as their neighbours, and who not only understand but share the frustration and anger people feel with the state of politics right now.

“What makes all Alliance’s candidates special is not privileged backgrounds or powerful connections but their determination to believe better is possible, and to step up and do the work to deliver it. They are people who believe our community deserves better. If you share that view, then demand better by voting Alliance in Causeway Coast and Glens on May 2.”
