Sinn Féin Councillor Paul Duffy has been elected the new Deputy Mayor of ABC Council.

Councillor Duffy, who represents the Portadown area, said:

"I am delighted to fulfil this role of Deputy Mayor on behalf of the Sinn Féin Party. I have represented Portadown for a total of X years and throughout that have advocated for all.

"I am also deeply proud to be from the Garvaghy road area, a community which was for far too long marginalised and which can now look forward to a better future.

"The year ahead will be full of opportunities and I hope to shine a positive light on Portadown and its many assets including our wonderful People's Park and our vibrant diverse multi cultural community.

"As Deputy Mayor we want to see council tackling social deprivation and inequalities right across the Borough.

" I also want to be advocates for rural areas which are too often left behind when it comes to investment.

"I am also aware of the countless community groups and charities that work tirelessly throughout ABC changing lives for the better daily.

"I look forward to meeting them and working with all those eager to improve the lives of those living in our Borough."
