North Down Alliance candidates for the Assembly election on 5 May 2022 have submitted their formal nominations at Bangor Castle on Friday 1 April 2022. Connie Egan and Andrew Muir are in the running in North Down alongside Kellie Armstrong and Nick Mathison in Strangford.
Speaking after Nomination, Connie Egan stated “I’m delighted to have been nominated as an Alliance candidate for North Down in the upcoming Assembly Election. It’s been an honour to serve Bangor West as a Councillor since 2019 and I hope to continue the work I have been doing in the Assembly; confronting the climate emergency, tackling the crisis in the health system, pushing for investment in North Down and promoting LGBT+ and women’s rights
North Down has led from the front in recent years with the election of its first Alliance MP, it is clear we have the momentum to deliver progressive change in representation in this constituency, by electing two progressive Alliance MLAs.”
Andrew Muir also remarked “It’s been a privilege to serve the people of North Down for well over a decade, first as Councillor from 2010, Mayor 2013/14 and MLA since late 2019, providing positive, progressive leadership, working hard to help hundreds of people on a wide range of issues especially people in need of Health Care. As Party Finance & Infrastructure Spokesperson I have been championing actions to deal with the rising Cost of Living, funding for our NHS, legislation to tackle Climate Change, support for businesses and more.
There’s a mountain of work that needs done but with others focused on division and disruption every vote will count to break the deadlock by electing Connie Egan and I. With your support, together, we can deliver the bigger Alliance MLA team needed to transform the Assembly, for good.”
