I am Alicia Clarke, a 24 year old woman from Omagh. I am a member of the Ulster Unionist Party and recently ran as the Ulster Unionist Party MLA candidate in the 2017 Assembly Election.

I am interested and involved in politics not for my own personal gain, but for the benefit of you, the people of Northern Ireland and the people of West Tyrone. Regardless of your religion, skin colour, political opinions or anything, I want to represent you in my fight for a more inclusive, equal and progressive Northern Ireland.

In the words of the late Jo Cox – We have far more in common than that which divides us.
