Mr Robin Swann, the North Antrim Ulster Unionist Party Assemblyman and UUP Leader, has issued his Christmas message to constituents in which he hopes 2018 “will bring better news on the financial front for families”.
Assemblyman Swann said: “With Christmas trees decorated, tins of chocolates opened and families looking forward to this happy occasion, I - on behalf of the Ulster Unionist Party - would like to wish everyone in the North Antrim constituency a peaceful Christmas, and a prosperous New Year.
“While this year has been a tough year for many, especially on the jobs front, we hope that 2018 will bring better news – particularly for those who will be struggling to make ends meet during what is an inevitably expensive time of year. Whatever your Christmas entails, I hope it is a happy time spent with friends and family.
“My thoughts are especially with those families in Northern Ireland and throughout the UK who have loved ones serving in our armed forces.
“While the Ulster Unionist Party continues to work to make our Province a better and more peaceful country to live in, it goes without saying that there remains a long road ahead in trying to get the Stormont Executive up and running again and facing the challenges of Brexit.
“Importantly, my office is open to those in need of help or support, and I look forward to the challenges of the year ahead.
“Again, I and my Party colleagues wish you, your family and your friends a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year,” said Assemblyman Swann.
