SDLP Councillor Michael Savage is to be the new Chair of Newry Mourne & Down District Council.

Commenting on the nomination for the Chair, Councillor Savage said: “Obviously nothing is official until the AGM takes place but it is a huge honour to be nominated as Chair of Newry, Mourne and Down District Council for the coming year and a proud moment for me, my family and the SDLP in this District.

“I want to thank my party colleagues for supporting me in my nomination and my wife Noreen and my family for their support throughout my political career.

“We have exciting times ahead in our district and I have real ambition for our people and I will outline my vision for the year ahead at the AGM.
