South Antrim Assembly election candidate David McMaster has announced details of information events he’s holding in the constituency.

The Ballyclare man, who is standing as an independent in May’s Stormont election, has organised three events in a bid to engage with the electorate.

The first event will be held in Ballyclare Town Hall on the Thursday. February 18. This will be followed by an event in Antrim Civic Centre on Thursday, March 24. The final scheduled event will be held in Neillsbrook Community Centre in Randalstown on Thursday, April 14. David is currently considering other dates.

Two of the main issues David is campaigning on are raising the minimum wage to £9.50 in Northern Ireland for large corporations, and introducing a bill which will make it illegal for companies to run a credit check on potential new employees.

David said: “I’m very focused on health and people with disabilities who are not treated with respect or being given proper guidance. I want people to know that I will be giving 15 per cent of my salary back to groups within the community who need it and I will not be claiming expenses. I want people to know there is a choice out there that doesn’t offer the politics of fear, division and greed and that there is someone outside the establishment.”
