Trevor Lunn: Alliance, Lagan Valley

By Noel McAdam

A former Lisburn councillor, Trevor sits on the education committee, and for recreation plays the organ.

Why did you want to become an MLA?

I had been a councillor for six years, which I thoroughly enjoyed, but when my predecessor (Seamus Close) didn't stand again I was delighted to represent the people of Lagan Valley at the Assembly.

Apart from work and family, what are your main passions in life?

I have always enjoyed playing music. I have been asked by several churches to play at different services and at Stormont where I have provided the music at the Christmas carol services.

What single issue would you hope to champion in the current Assembly term?

Anything which promotes cross-community understanding and mutual respect, or segregation will continue to be perpetuated.

What, if anything, is in most urgent need of change in the current Stormont system?

We need to move to a more streamlined version, with fewer MLAs, departments and a removal of blocking mechanisms.
