Quick reminder to East Belfast readers that they have a chance to put their questions to local representatives as well as the minister of education at Thursday evening’s East Belfast Speaks Out event.
The general theme of the evening is still:
How responsive is the Assembly to the real concerns of the electorate?
John O’Dowd MLA (Sinn Féin) will be joined on the panel by Michael Copeland (UUP), Sammy Douglas MLA (DUP), John Kyle (PUP councillor) and Chris Lyttle MLA (Alliance). Mark Devenport will be back again to chair the evening.
While welcoming questions on all subjects of concern to the people of East Belfast, with an Executive Minister present, education may be a hot topic.
Ashfield Boys School on the Holywood Road will once again be the venue. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.
