Sinn Féin Launch New Constituency Office In Warrenpoint
SINN Féin recently held the official opening of their new constituency office on Charlotte Street in Warrenpoint.
John O’Dowd MLA, who is NI Education MInister, was the guest speaker at the event and cut the ribbon to officially open the new service.
Speaking following the opening Caitríona Ruane MLA said: “It is great to see so many faces, both young and old at the launch here today and indeed the presence of our two young incoming councillors Sinead Ennis and Mark Gibbons who are a testament to the growth and diversity of Sinn Féin here in the South Down area.
“This brand new office will continue with the excellent service we provide to constituents. Our office can deal with all your queries, whether they be a local issue you would like to raise, a welfare issue or indeed any overall wider political issue. So I would encourage everyone in the area who would require any assistance at all to avail of the great service our office provides without any hesitation.”
Councillor Mickey Ruane added the Sinn Féin constituency office would play a vital role in representing the people of the area saying: “As political representatives we are given a mandate by the people to make representation on their behalf, and this office is another part of that representation.
“Whilst Sinn Féin representatives are often on the ground and deal with numerous issues for constituents there is always the background engine of the local constituency office and I want to pay tribute to the office staff and volunteers who keep that engine running. I am constantly getting feedback from the public on the positive experience they have when they approach our offices and it is important that this good work continues.
“This office is a visual representation of the vast growth of Sinn Féin in South Down and as we approach an election year in 2014 it is important that this growth continues. I want to encourage everyone that have not yet done so to get on the electoral register and to get involved with the growing Sinn Féin movement in the area.”
