ALEX EASTON MLA CALLS ON THE HOUSING EXECUTIVE TO SORT WILLOWBROOK FENCING OUT.

Alex Easton MLA has today called on Housing Executive to sort out the fencing at Willowbrook.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“This has been an on-going issue for years and I was rather dismayed by the state of the Housing Executives fencing in the area which is a mess with huge gaps and most of the actual fencing missing and fallen down. It has not been maintained and is no use to the safety or residents living in Willowbrook in its current dangerous state. The fence is ugly and unsightly and the Housing executive needs to invest in replacing the fencing and more importantly fix it for the safety of the residents of Willowbrook which is the priority.”

ALEX EASTON MLA BLASTS NORTH DOWN FB SINN FEIN TERRORIST POSTER.

North Down MLA Alex Easton said, “I was messaged privately by a concerned voter in my area last night and I went to the North Down Sinn Fein page myself to find this disturbing picture.

Sinn Fein must explain why IRA pictures, which are clearly added to a picture alongside their Council candidate Kieran Maxwell was posted on their Facebook page? This is not in any way humorous particularly for the innocent victims who suffered at the hands of IRA terrorists.

Kieran Maxwell must also explain if he supports the posting of this picture and indeed the glorification of terrorism?

Last night’s social media post was in bad taste and wrong given that we are in 2019, when any form of promotion for terrorism should not be common place.

 ALEX EASTON MLA STUNNED AT WORK DONE TO MAIN STREET BANGOR.

Alex Easton MLA is stunned at the state that the footpaths in Main Street in Bangor have been left in.

 

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“ I am totally stunned after the council spends millions of pounds developing our footpaths in Main Street that TNI have allowed some other body to come in and dig up the pavements and then to replace the new paving with a lump of tarmac. The work to our town centre cost a lot of money and took a long time to do and it is unacceptable for any authority to think they can replace like with like. The council must insure that TNI have this paving restored to its original state and that nobody must be allowed to leave it as a patch work quilt, this is an utter disgrace.”
