We need more representation says Ciara

Belfast, Lisburn & Castlereagh Chapter Participant is running as a candidate in local elections

Ciara Campbell, a member of The Next Chapter Belfast, Lisburn & Castlereagh Chapter Hub, is running for local elections.

“I am extremely honoured to have been selected by the Alliance Party to run as a candidate for Court, in the Belfast district. I believe that everyone in all districts should have the opportunity to vote for a non-sectarian, progressive and practical party. Therefore I am delighted to give those in Court an opportunity to do that. We are all sick of gridlock and it is time to demand better and vote different.

I encourage more young people and women to nominate themselves to be candidates for public office. We don’t have enough representation. The Next Chapter project is fantastic as I can see the growing confidence of all the women who participate. To all women who are considering getting involved in running for election, I say: if not now, then when?”

Thanks to Ciara for taking the time to write this testimonial.
