After missing out on a council seat in 2014 by just 9 votes, Sinn Féin’s Leanne Peacock has secured a seat in council after the stage 1 count for Ballymoney DEA on Friday.
Speaking today to Ballymoney Bubble, Leanne said;
“I am delighted to have been elected on the first count to represent the people of Ballymoney DEA.
I am honoured and humbled that 2059 people put their faith in myself and Cathal as their representatives, we will do our all to provide the best possible representation working for the betterment of everyone in this area.
Thanks to my election agent Aodán and the entire team who worked tirelessly to achieve this outcome.
I look forward to working with Cathal and our increased team on CCAG Council to champion equality, fairness and good local government that works for everyone.“
Leanne will join six other councillors from Ballymoney to make up the 40 councillors representing the Causeway Coast & Glens Borough Council Area.
