UKIP Leader in Northern Ireland David McNarry MLA was today pleased to welcome the former President of Belfast Chamber of Trade and Commerce Joe Jordan into UKIP.
Mr Jordan who has had a long and successful career in the Property Sector was President of the Chamber of Trade and Commerce from May 2011 to May 2013.
Commenting on Mr Jordan’s decision to join the party, the UKIP MLA said:
“Every day we are growing in Northern Ireland. In addition to adding to our growing Councillor team by attracting hard working and experienced elected representatives such as Alderman Bob Stoker and Councillor Robert Hill (who will no doubt be joined by others) we are also attracting a wide range of new members from various backgrounds.”
“I am very pleased that Joe has made the decision to join UKIP today, and I am confident that his experience in the business world will be a great asset to us going forward. Joe and others are realising that UKIP can be a political home for those who want change, but are fed up with the tired old parties and the same broken promises.”
Commenting on joining UKIP, Mr Jordan added:
“I am delighted to be joining UKIP here in Northern Ireland. I have had a long career in business and during my term as President of the Belfast Chamber of Trade and Commerce, (2011-2013) I dealt with many of our local politicians on a regular basis. When I recently made the decision to get involved in politics, there was only ever going to be one home for me, and that was UKIP.”
“I want to get directly involved in politics because I am fed up of seeing the older parties letting people down. I’m thoroughly uninspired by the parties of old that trot out the same lines over and over again.”
“I have watched with interest as Politics on the mainland has been shaken up by UKIP and their CommonSense policies. UKIP is growing here too, and It is time that we played our part in Northern Ireland. I am pleased to be joining the only party that is ready for challenge of delivering much needed change, and the only party that is prepared to talk straight, and shake things up here aswell.”
