THE Ulster Unionist Party in Fermanagh and Omagh District Council have pledged to continue to be the voice of the ratepayer after their proposal to freeze the district rate failed to find favour with other parties. The council eventually agreed to raise the district rate by 2.3 per-cent when the SDLP, SF and independents voted through the rise. The Ulster Unionist Party believe that the savings promised to you by the big two parties when the council’s merged have simply not materialised and unless councillors are prepared to make tough decisions, they never will.
Councils with low rates are more attractive to business, more attractive to home owners and a few extra pounds in your back pocket, rather than in the council’s coffers will improve our citizens life in a clear and tangible way. This election is a council election, others are trying to turn it into something else, a border poll, a second Brexit referendum or many other things. Those same people have delivered political stalemate, division and shattered people’s faith in politics and politicians. Don’t let them turn your council into a mini Stormont. Only you can send a clear and unambiguous message that you aren’t happy with what’s going on. You deserve better. We will deliver better
