DUP Leader Sir Jeffrey Donaldson has announced that Peter Johnson has been selected to fill the vacancy in the Holywood and Clandeboye electoral area of Ards and North Down Borough Council. The vacancy arose following Stephen Dunne's co-option to the Northern Ireland Assembly.
Sir Jeffrey said, "I am delighted to announce that Peter will fill the vacancy within Ards & North Down Borough Council. He will be part of a dedicated team delivering for people within the area and I know he will make a very valuable contribution to both the people of Holywood and Clandeboye as well as to the Party in the North Down area."
Peter Johnson said, "It is a privilege to represent the people of Holywood and Clandeboye. I am looking forward to working with colleagues on Council as well as being part of a wider DUP team to deliver for Ards and North Down as well as Northern Ireland as a whole."
