‘Some people might think I’m a bit young, but I think I have some good experience’

Cllr Phillip Brett.

Cllr Phillip Brett.

Newtownabbey’s youngest ever councillor, Phillip Brett, says he’s thoroughly enjoyed his first six months as a public representative.

The DUP man was co-opted onto the council last year after his party colleague, Paula Bradley gave up her set in the Antrim Line DEA to concentrate on her role as an MLA.

The 22-year-old was raised in Glengormley, just off the Hightown Road. He still lives in the area and he says he’s proud to be representing the people of his home town.
