Your Candidate in Foyle is: Rachael Ferguson
Rachael is an Alliance Councillor on Derry City and Strabane District Council, having been elected in May’s local government election.
A mother of two, Rachael and her partner live locally and want to see a better society for their children.
A director of the Tiny Tots community group and a board member of Strathfoyle Women’s Activity Group, Rachael is also co-founder of an online support group for mothers.
Rachael understands the struggles facing locals, from availability of housing to assessment waiting times. That’s why she wants to help create a more inclusive future for everyone.
Brexit will have a particular impact on Foyle, potentially limiting the ability of people to freely cross the border multiple times a day. We need a strong, inclusive pro-Remain voice, who will vote against Brexit and for the revoking of Article 50.
Jobs & Economic Development
For too long has our city lacked investment – we need to see better infrastructure and more investors. The Government needs to deliver on the City Deal, while the medical school and expansion of Magee Campus are essential to boost our economy.
New services for everyone
We need to secure improved community, voluntary and statutory services to help everyone in our community. Vital services and health provisions – particularly mental health – must be prioritised.
