Michael Savage has been selected to fill a vacancy on Newry, Mourne and Down Council.

Mr Savage said he is delighted to have the opportunity to represent local people and will be a fierce advocate for their rights.

Speaking after his selection, he said, “It’s an honour to be selected to represent the people of Newry on the Council.



“I have a strong background in local politics and I’m delighted to have been given the opportunity to step up and represent the people of our City.

“This is a critical time in our politics. The threat of Brexit will have profound consequences across the North but nowhere more than in communities that have benefitted so much from a border open for trade and free movement like ours.



He continued, “I care passionately about creating a future for our talented young people and I see job creation as a key issue in our community. We have a young population for whom we want to create good jobs so that we no longer export our best assets.

“I will be an outspoken voice passionately defending the interests of the people of Newry. Whether it’s defending our health services, improving our rail links or fighting a hard Brexit, there’s a lot to fight for here and I intend to be on the front line.



Michael added, “I again want to thank party members for their support and I’m looking forward to getting down to work.”
