Ulster Unionist MLA Jo-Anne Dobson has congratulated all of the 12 Ulster Unionist councillors who have been elected to the new Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Council.

She said: “For the Ulster Unionist Party to top the poll is a massive endorsement of hard work and commitment on the part of all of our 
candidates and their campaign teams across the region.

“This is a fantastic result for the party, but it is equally a terrific result for unionism!

“By offering an effective mix of youth and experience to the electorate we received the highest number of first preference votes cast at 18,882 or 26.1% of the total poll, ahead of all other political parties!”
