Gregory gets a challenge over double-jobbing

I AM not going to attack Gregory Campbell for trying to justify his double-jobbing in his letter in the Belfast Telegraph (Write Back, April 21).

Instead, I want to invite him to join with me in making three promises to the people of East Londonderry:

1. I promise that, if I am elected to more than one position, I will hold on to only one elected post and I will give the people 100% in that role

2. I promise that I will never employ any member of my family on political expenses

3. I promise that I will never rent office premises from a family member on political expenses.

If Gregory Campbell can join with me in making these three promises, then together we will have made a contribution to cleaning up the reputation of politics in Northern Ireland.

I look forward to hearing Gregory's response.


Candidate for East Londonderry
