I am Gary Hynds, born and bred in Lisburn and like many other people I have been frustrated with the lack of governance provided by the local political parties in Stormont. As an independently minded individual I have decided to be the change I wish for. I was brought up in the working class area of Low Road, Hilden and remain there until this very day, opening a new small business within the area recently.
I have stood for election twice now and my belief is that to represent you properly it is necessary to continuously hear and listen to your views and concerns. To this end during the last election I personally covered over 5000 doors and through the difficult pandemic times, whilst furloughed from my employment, I volunteered daily with a local charity collecting food and distributing it to those in need. I continue to engage with my local community daily, speaking to residents, community groups, regular delivery of help/advice leaflets and running advice surgeries.
No longer should Northern Ireland be held back, instead a future should be achieved for our children and our children's children, where they can return from university and get good well paid jobs. Also to those who do not go to university, an economy which can offer careers or apprenticeships. Our children are the future, let us leave them a legacy they can be proud of. I ask you to join me on this mission, we all have a role, lets do it!
