Councillor Stephanie Quigley in a shock announcement, has described her move from the SDLP to become an Independent Councillor as a ‘new chapter’ in her political career.
Speaking earlier on social media, Councillor Quigley wrote: “As we journey through life there are always ‘crossroads’ moments and today I have made a really difficult but important decision to be an Independent Councillor.”
“I have had the privilege to work alongside great people and make some lifetime friends in the SDLP and I’ll always be grateful for that. As my lovely daddy said to me IT’S ALL ABOUT THE PEOPLE not the politics.”
“I have to be true to myself and live my truth to serve ALL of the community in the area I know and love so well. I am excited for what this next chapter will bring and I look forward to sharing it with you all.”
“Thank you for all the love and support over the last seven years, you’ve made every moment worthwhile and I’m excited to continue to serve with renewed passion and strength.”
