Sian has been an Alliance Councillor for the last eight years. She is looking forward to Alliance continuing to represent the many people of North Antrim who voted for their first Alliance MLA in May. 
“I am honoured to have been selected as the new Alliance MLA for North Antrim by local party members. I'd like to also pay tribute to Patricia O'Lynn, whose bold vision helped grow the party to unimaginable heights here in North Antrim,” she said.
“Last May, people across North Antrim put their faith in Alliance and the party has continually repaid that. I look forward to continuing that hard work and helping people with the issues that matter to them across the constituency.
“Coming from a rural village, I know those issues well, including roads infrastructure, transport, health, broadband and utilities, school amalgamations and community resources. Those are the bread and butter matters which impact people in North Antrim on a daily basis.
"But to deliver on those commitments, we need an Assembly and Executive restored. I will use my voice as MLA to push for that every day.
“The people of North Antrim voted for change. Myself and my party colleagues will bring commitment, energy and focus to deliver precisely that.”
Party Leader, Naomi Long MLA, said, "We are delighted to welcome Sian to our Assembly team. She has a wealth of political and community experience, having served as a councillor and worked in both the youth and arts sectors. I hope that she will have an opportunity to put those skills to good use on behalf of her constituents in North Antrim in a working Assembly, sooner rather than later."
