Mr Robin Swann, the North Antrim Ulster Unionist Assembly candidate in the forthcoming Stormont poll on 2ndMarch, has revealed that he is spending part of his election poster costs on traffic calming signs, which he plans to donate to community groups in the constituency.

Mr Swann, the UUP Chief Whip and past Chair of the Stormont Public Accounts Committee, said: “Prior to the election campaign formally commencing, I met with or talked to the main parties in North Antrim to see if we could agree on a poster ban for this election, but unfortunately, I was unable to get agreement on this occasion.

“So, rather than spend money on posters, I have decided to buy a number of traffic calming signs, which I will make available to North Antrim Community Groups.

“I feel strongly that on this occasion, people would rather see something useful attached to lampposts rather than grinning faces of candidates.

“I was working with a number of community groups on traffic calming measures before this unneeded election was called, so rather than waste money on new posters, I will be putting my money where my mouth is and I hope that these traffic calming signs are a greater benefit to some communities.

“So what limited number of posters I have I will put up will be restricted to approaches to a number of polling stations,” said Mr Swann.
