The final voter to take part in our ‘Who are you voting for?’ series is 18 year-old St. Columb’s College student, Charlie Douglas, who will be voting for the first time on May 7.
Q - Who are you voting for and why are you voting for them on May 7?
“I am going to be voting for Mark Durkan of the SDLP because as a young person and as a student I feel my generation has been let down by austerity coming from Westminster. I believe we need a very strong voice to fight against austerity and fight for projects that I am very passionate about, like the expansion of Magee, more infrastructure for Derry and more jobs.
“I think we need a man like Mark who still stand up for the issues that matter to Derry people.
“As a young person I remember when the Saville Inquiry into Bloody Sunday was unveiled at the Guildhall. I remember watching Mark Durkan stand up inside the chamber in the House of Commons and deliver our message to the British government - I felt tremendously proud and I am very proud to be voting for Mark Durkan on May 7.”
