Cllr William McCandless selected as Ulster Unionist Westminster candidate for East Londonderry

Councillor William McCandless has been selected as the Ulster Unionist Candidate for East Londonderry for the forthcoming General Election. 

Cllr McCandless said:

“It is a great honour to have been selected as the Ulster Unionist candidate for the East Londonderry constituency.  I am a Coleraine native, working in the manufacturing industry for 40 years and have represented the town at council level since 2011, so I offer the voters a wealth of knowledge and experience in representing local people.   

“The interests of East Londonderry are close to my heart and, if elected, I will work tirelessly for the whole community.  At the forefront of my campaign will be the retention of the Causeway Hospital, maximising our tourism industry and promoting inward investment.  I would be a proud ambassador for East Londonderry at Westminster and beyond.”  

Ulster Unionist Party Leader, Mike Nesbitt MLA said:

“From our first meeting, I was struck with William’s commitment to the people he serves as a Councillor and am glad he is offering himself to the people on the 7th of May because he has a lot to give. 

“William McCandless is a man who is connected with the community and would be a determined advocate for East Londonderry at the heart of Westminster.  I am delighted that someone with his record of public service is now taking this next step.

“If the people of East Londonderry want to vote for someone who will be a full-time MP, then they have that option in William.  I know that he would be a dedicated Member of Parliament.”
