Responding to the announcement by Councillor Darryn Causby stating his intention to stand down from local Government, Carla Lockhart MP said:
“Darryn has been a great colleague and friend for many years. He is Portadown through and through, and has a great personal connection to the people who time and time again voted for him to serve on Council.
In his 12 years as Councillor he has been a passionate and articulate voice for the community. As he steps away from elected politics, he can reflect on his time in office with a great sense of achievement of the improvements he has delivered within the Portadown area, and to the help given to many individuals who can testify to the positive difference he has made in their lives.
Knowing Darryn as I do, what lies ahead will be approached with enthusiasm and determination. We in the DUP will miss him, but I wish Darryn, Sarah and the boys the very best as they embark on their next chapter together.”
