Janice Montgomery is co-opted to Faughan seat on Derry City and Strabane Council

The Ulster Unionist Party have announced that Janice Montgomery will replace Ryan McCready on Derry City and Strabane District Council.

The Ulster Unionist Party has today announced that Janice Montgomery has been co-opted to the Faughan District Electoral Area on Derry City and Strabane District Council.

She will replace Ryan McCready, who stepped down last week to become Chair of the Londonderry Port and Harbour Commission.

The UUP’s Foyle branch met on Tuesday and Ms Montgomery was chosen. She ran in the local election last year but didn’t win a seat.

“As Chair of the Ulster Unionist Foyle Branch I want to thank both candidates who nominated themselves to replace Ryan McCready who stepped down from his Councillor role after successfully taking the position of Chair on the Londonderry Port and Harbour Commission.  Although just not making it over the line, I want to thank Glen Miller for nominating as a candidate. I have no doubt he will keep himself involved within the Party and in future elections.

“Congratulations to Janice Montgomery who received overwhelming support from all branch members during the selection process.  It is just rewards for the way she has continued to work for the Ulster Unionist Party in Londonderry since running in last May’s Local Elections. I have no doubt Janice will serve the people of the Faughan DEA well. She will be a great asset to our Council team moving forward.”

– Alderman Darren Guy, Chairman of UUP Foyle branch
