Whyte will run as an independent
Community activist Corey Whyte has announced he will run as an independent candidate in the local elections in May. He will seek election in the newly formed Sligo - Drumcliff electoral area. Mr Whyte said: “Over the last ten years I have worked to enhance Sligo through numerous campaigns, referenda and working with community groups. While I have been proud to work and achieve progress, a focused and community based approach to further enhance our county is needed. Having been approached by a number of people to contest, and with further encouragement from friends and family, I am now announcing my intention to seek election”.
A graduate of Social Care from IT Sligo, Mr Whyte has given his experience working with community groups as a motivation for his candidacy.
He said: “I have been part of committed communities who have worked together tirelessly to affect change in Sligo. My aspiration is to continue working hard with my community and be a strong voice on the numerous issues that continue to affect the day to day lives of Sligo citizens.”
