in the 2023 Council election I was re-elected as part of a strong 5-person team of Alliance Councillors with MLA Patrick Brown acting as my election agent. Patrick and I worked together to deliver my local government manifesto   Restore Downpatrick as our Unchallenged County Town. 

Five Councillors and an MLA - great progress!
Five Councillors and an MLA – great progress!

Myself and my 5 colleagues can be contacted though our MLA’s offices at Market Lane in the centre of Downpatrick where we lead the fight-back against the Newry-based parties to  Restore Downpatrick as our Unchallenged County Town.

We also have an office in Warrenpoint in the aptly-named Meeting Street.

These links will take you to my Facebook page and profile where you will see our team continuing to work day and daily for the people of Downpatrick and the Lecale Coast, North to Rowallane and Strangford Lough and South to the Mournes and Carlingford Lough.

 The campaigns you see on this website mostly go back before Facebook to  the 2007 to 2011 Council term and again from 2011 up to 2012. Since March 2019 I have been testing software that sends my current Facebook posts to this site – see below – It’s limited to the last dozen or so posts and I have been working on how to keep a larger number of these posts on the website.

I have had the pleasure of organising Michelle Guys election campaign in the Lecale and Quoile areas, helping substantially reduce the DUP’s majority, and showing that there is a real want for a positive, progressive voice in Strangford.

Unfortunately, it was not Michelle’s day today, but with an increase in the Alliance vote, and a huge campaign in Strangford which saw thousands of doors knocked and leaflets delivered - I’m so pleased we have made a strong impact.

Thanks to all those working behind the scenes, for the deliveries, the canvassing, the labelling, the envelope writing, the donations and all the other tasks that have gone into this election.

Tomorrow, Strangford has a choice between a DUP MP, part of the team that have supported destructive Conservative austerity policies, or a positive, progressive Alliance MP who will be a cross-community voice for all.

Since being selected as the candidate for Westminster, Michelle Guy has been on the ground day in and day out, leading change for the rural villages of Lecale. The area of my DEA now represented in the Strangford constituency can make history by voting for Michelle.

Only Alliance in both the Strangford and South Down Areas are fighting to stop the creation of a new Council HQ in Newry. Businesses and the Churches in Newry are also opposing the giant over-sized building proposed by the SDLP/SF to be built in the City's main car-park at Abbey Way.

Michelle Guy, Alliance Strangford Westminster Candidate restated the party position ahead of the election. "Downpatrick is the County Town where Newry Mourne and Down's HQ should be based. The SDLP and Sinn Féin are wrong to waste money building a giant new HQ in Newry that the NI Civil Service are no longer planning to share. This building needs to be dramatically downsized for Newry Council Staff land located on one of the many derelict sites around Newry - not in the main town car-park serving businesses and church-goers alike in the City.”

In Downpatrick and Lecale, vote for who actually has best your interests in mind.

A vote for Michelle Guy and Andrew McMurray is a vote for Restoring our County Town and supporting our rural Lecale villages.

🗳️ On Thursday, #VoteGuy #VoteMcMurray

Council must start listening. A vote for Alliance in this general election is a vote to strengthen Alliance representation in the NMD area that calls for financial responsibility and council transparency 👇

Andrew McMurray Alliance Party // Michelle Guy StrangfordI have had so many messages from people totally fed up with the disingenuous way they are being spoken to by other party activists and indeed elected reps.

Here is how things stand with regards the gondola.

*the extra costs will come from every single ratepayer from Saintfield to Crossmaglen*

A person can stand on your step and say whatever they like, it doesn't make it true.

Votes do.
