Alliance councillor Karen Douglas announces resignation

The councillor for Bangor Central will step down next month.

Karen Douglas, Alliance councillor for Bangor Central, has announced that she will resign from her role at Ards and North Down Borough Council at the end of September.

Alliance have said they will select a replacement soon after her resignation takes effect.

Karen Douglas released her statement on the Alliance party website: “As a resident of Bangor, it has been my immense honour to serve local people as Councillor for the past seven years”

“In particular, my time as Mayor and Deputy Mayor provided the opportunity to meet with individuals, groups and organisations across our Borough, to thank them for the support, comfort, guidance and service they provide across the local area.

“In addition, it was with great pride I welcomed Princess Anne to Bangor to have city status conferred, and in turn I was able to confer the Freedom of the Borough to both the Irish Guards and local musician Gary Lightbody. Those memories will live with me the rest of my life.

“While I am stepping back from my role as an elected representative, I remain a great supporter of Alliance, my Council team colleagues and our MLAs and MP. My commitment to achieving the best for our Borough, our city and our society remains, and I will continue to work towards a peaceful and reconciled society as a private citizen.”
