East Antrim Alliance MLA, Stewart Dickson, has praised the 2018 Alliance Party Conference which took place on Saturday 25th March at the Stormont Hotel in Belfast.
Remarking on the event, Mr Dickson said: “In these times of political stalemate, the Alliance Party has demonstrated that we have not run out of ideas. We will work for a prosperous and settled future for Northern Ireland, and will look beyond the petty differences that bog other parties down. Our proposals to end the current political stalemate, launched last week, are evidence of this.
In the 20th year of the Good Friday Agreement, Alliance is ready to Step Forward to build a Northern Ireland fit for the 21st Century. We implore other parties entrenched in their tired, old sectarian positions, to adopt a similar spirit of optimism and generosity, and put the wasted months of statement in the past.”
“Let’s make 2018 a year of progress and hope, just like 1998 was.”
