Mayor’s abuse of privilege totally unacceptable – Clarke

1 Mins read

The deputy Mayor of Causeway Borough Council Trevor Clarke has criticised Sinn Fein Mayor Brenda Chivers over her use of the Mayor’s Parlour to host a Sinn Fein event.

The Coleraine DUP councillor said his party group is seeking answers about how the event was notified and organised.

“Councillors – including the Mayor – are bound by a Code of Conduct which states elected members cannot use Council resources ‘improperly for political purposes.’ It is clear from the Sinn Fein banners on display in the Mayor’s Parlour this was precisely an event of a political nature, staged two weeks before a local government election. No party should politicise what is neutral civic space. The Mayor has abused her position and demonstrated total disregard for the office she currently holds.”

“This is unacceptable and we are seeking further facts from Council’s Chief Executive ahead of deciding how best to pursue this matter. It is a serious breach of protocol and must be investigated and dealt with as such.”
