It is one of the boxes to tick during any election campaign to "nominate". This involves having a number of people in your area sign your nomination papers. This sounds simple, and it is fair to say that it far from a complex exercise. But it does involve checking election registers etc to ensure that the persons who signed, and believed themselves to appear on the electoral register, actually are!
This cheery bunch are some of those who attended to show their support when I lodged my papers with the electoral office. Roy Beggs Jnr, my Party colleague and running mate in East Antrim lodged his papers at the same time.
Anyway, no doubt you will see some of this bunch at your door in the coming weeks asking you to support myself and Roy. Without change in the balance of Parties at Stormont, we will have the same people responsible for the shambles of the last four years, calling the shots in the next four years. That would not be good for you and it would not be good for Northern Ireland.Come on Working For Change in East Antrim.
