Councillor Elisha McCallion, First Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, April 2015- June 2016
I have served on Derry City Council since 2005 representing the Shantallow ward from that time, and have held the role as Chair of the Development Committee since 2013. I am both delighted and honoured to be appointed as the First Citizen of the Derry City and Strabane District Council at the Council’s AGM on 26th March 2015.
I am conscious that we need to reflect on a new era at this exciting time for local government in Derry, Strabane and the wider North West area. My promise is to be Mayor to represent everyone throughout the Derry City and Strabane District Council area and seek to promote partnership-working, respect, inclusive politics and equality for all.
Cllr McCallion lives with her supportive husband Declan and the couple’s three young sons Daithi, 10 years old Fiachra who is 7 and Malachi 9 months.
