Cllr Richard Holmes handed in his nomination papers for the General Election at the Electoral Office in Londonderry today (Thursday 11th May.)
Looking forward to the critical four week campaign he said: “This election is crucial not only for the United Kingdom’s Brexit negotiations but for Northern Ireland’s place in the United Kingdom.
Farming, the food industry and tourism are important industries in our constituency and must be protected in negotiations with Europe. Northern Ireland can’t be the poor relation in the UK.
I bring over 20 years of business experience with me. With a failed Executive at Stormont, I will work hard to ensure we get a fair deal.
A vote for the Ulster Unionist Party is a vote for a stronger, better union.”
