Newly elected Alliance Assembly member Trevor Lunn has thanked voters across Lagan Valley for their continued support.Trevor Lunn said, ‘Once again I feel very privileged to have been selected by thousands of voters across Lagan Valley to represent them in the Assembly. The strength of my mandate shows there is support for a progressive party that wants to move Northern Ireland forward. We do n…ot need to resort to scare tactics, but have shown we can take a principled stand on controversial issues that are important to many people.

As the parties enter negotiations to develop a programme for government, the Alliance Party team will argue strongly for objectives that can deliver our core policies to achieve greater integration of services that will better serve the people.
“At the local level, my busy constituency office will continue to help people deal with the issues impacting on their daily lives, such as welfare benefits, unemployment and housing. These are the real issues the new Assembly must address.
“I would also like to thank my family, constituency staff and election team, who made my re-election possible.”
