What exciting news! Bangor is to become a city 🎉 I was glad to support the application in @ANDborough last year when it was brought before Cllrs. We’ve so much to be proud of with our rich history and lots to look forward to with future development and investment. #LoveBangor

Great meeting this afternoon with Jay and Theo from @PureMentalNI in Stormont alongside @EoinTennyson. Before the election I pledged to support their five asks. Delighted to now be able to progress these issues as an MLA and improve mental health outcomes for young people.

Alliance are ready to get to work. This is where we want to be, delivering on the issues that matter to you. But we can't because the DUP are holding the Assembly to ransom. Blocking all other parties on delivering on the things they were elected to do. #StopTheirSalaries

Great to attend the @AlzSocNI event in Stormont today, for the launch of Dementia Action Week. Once my constituency office is up and running, we’ll all be doing their Dementia Training. #CureTheCareSystem #DAW2022

DRAAAAAG THE CHEAP GRIFTERS Naomi!
"While this is a sad day for Northern Ireland, it is a shameful day for the DUP" Alliance Party leader Naomi Long criticises members of the DUP for taking their salaries but refusing "to take their seats and do the work to earn it" bbc.in/3FMwibs

Delighted we can announce @KarenDouglas_NI as our new Mayor for Ards & North Down. She will be a fantastic representative for our Borough. 👏🏻
Alliance is excited to announce @KarenDouglas_NI will be the new Mayor of Ards and North Down in the coming year, joining our strong team of four MLAs, an MP and 10 Councillors working for all in the area.

We turned up to work today, ready to deliver for our constituents. The DUP blocked us all from doing that. It’s a slap in the face for those on health and housing waiting lists and struggling to make ends meet.

Incredibly angry and frustrated waking up to this news. This helps absolutely no one. A party that hold 25 out of 90 seats should not be able to hold the rest of us back from getting on with the job.
BREAKING: Sir Jeffrey Donaldson says his party won't nominate an Assembly speaker today as newly elected MLAs gather at Stormont. He tells the Newsletter that the Irish Sea border must go. The DUP's move means the Assembly now won't be able to function.

Great initiative by the pupils of @Grangepkps 👏🏻 the area is chaos in the mornings and school pick up time. As a past pupil, local resident and now MLA I will be doing all I can do promote road safety around the school 🚗🚦
Great partnership with the Bangor Neighbourhood Policing Team this morning, working with parents and pupils to help promote safe parking around our school. @PSNIArdsNDown

After an election which was dominated by the cost of living crisis, health service we are now told by DUP that none of us can do our jobs because they want to punish people of NI because of an issue that can only be solved by UKG&EU? No I don't get it either & its reprehensible.

I’ve spent the day reading so many incredible messages. I can’t thank you all enough for your support. After some celebrations with @AndrewMuirNI last night, I’m having a relaxing day with family before heading to Stormont first thing in the morning. Thank you all SO much. 💛
