North Down is a great place but needs ambition, energy and a fresh approach to take us forward. I’m relentlessly positive that our best days are yet to come and offer you courage, determination and commitment to build an even better place where we attract and retain talent, grow the economy, respect everyone as an individual whilst protecting and enhancing our environment for future generations.
Alliance is the only party that puts building a shared society as its top priority, aspiring to a new type of society which embraces diversity. I seek your support for this vision on the basis of a track record of inclusive leadership, delivery on the issues that matter plus a comprehensive Alliance Party manifesto with detailed policies on a range of areas such as plans to tackle division and save £1billion wasted each year on segregation, a Green New Deal, plans to tackle tax avoidance and also to end secretive political donations. Full details at www.allianceparty.org
On 7 May you can move forward to this vision or back to old them and us politics whilst opportunities and public finances are wasted. It’s your choice. Next Thursday let’s Step Forward together, Lead Change and vote Alliance.
