Your Candidate in East Londonderry is: Chris McCaw
Having worked with Invest Northern Ireland for six years and elected as a Councillor this year, Chris has been working to ensure the Council does more to engage with small businesses on growing local business and attracting new companies to the Enterprise Zone.
Supporting local action on issues facing older citizens in our Borough, Chris is a board member at Age Concern Causeway, a local charity providing services and support to them.
Chris is passionate about community politics. He is proud to be a board member at Portstewart Community Association and a regular attendee at community groups in Portrush, Portballintrae and across the Causeway area.
Recognising the need to sustain Causeway Hospital, Chris will continue to lobby for maintaining and increasing services at the hospital. He is a member of the Patient Panel for Inflammatory Bowel Diseases and a passionate supporter of the A&E department.
Openness and transparency
Championing greater openness and transparency, Chris is committed to ensuring people in East Londonderry have full access to decisions that affect them. He’ll continue to hold others to account, guarantee all decisions are on public record and continue to push for open government at all levels.
While others fall back on tribal political lines, Chris continues to be a voice of inclusion representing everyone. When it comes to discussions around the Irish language or the use of the name Londonderry, you can count on Chris to be the voice of reason and tolerance.
Protecting the vulnerable
Vulnerable residents need protection and better services from the Government. A key priority for Chris will be working to better serve our older and disabled citizens, as well as anyone else in need, ensuring essential resources are fully available.
