DUP Alderman Graham Warke, who represents the Faughan area, will be the new Deputy Mayor, working alongside the new Mayor, SDLP's Brian Tierney.
Alderman Warke said: “We are living in a difficult time as we deal with the coronavirus crisis. It’s vital that we stand together and meet the challenges head on. I will do everything I can to help support and improve the quality of life for all the people of our great City & District.
I am grateful to my party colleagues from the DUP for nominating me into the position and a special thanks for the support from my family and partner Tracy during my time serving the people of the Faughan. I look forward to the year ahead as Deputy Mayor and look forward working with everyone across the City and District.”
