THE Ulster Unionist Party have announced a strong team of prospective candidates to stand in the forthcoming local Council elections for Mid-Ulster on 2nd May.
The Party said in a statement: “The May 2019 local council elections will offer an opportunity for people to vote for those who will represent them on Mid-Ulster District Council.
“In the absence of an NI Assembly this is the only avenue which people will be able to have their concerns addressed.”
The Party added: “It seems that Sinn Fein -controlled councils, especially those West of Bann are intent on pushing an anti- unionist/British agenda and we shall be demanding equality of rights and funding for at least 40% of the population in Mid-Ulster Council Area.
The list of candidates is as follows:
Clogher Valley DEA – Meta Graham & Robert Mulligan
Dungannon DEA – Kim McNeill & Walter Cuddy
Torrent DEA- Robert Colvin
Cookstown DEA – Trevor Wilson & Mark Glasgow
Moyola DEA- Derek McKinney
Carntogher DEA- Christopher Reid
Magherafelt DEA – George Shiels
