Independent Brendan has the support of renowned musician Phil Coulter
INDEPENDENT candidate in the Bray area, Brendan Thornhill, got the thumbs up from one of the town's most famous residents last week.
Renowned musician Phil Coulter was happy to give the Vevay Road man his vote and indeed went a step further by agreeing to make a video clip urging people to vote for Brendan.
In the short video, the Derry man said 'these days we've all become a little disenchanted with politics and politicians. We don't know who to trust. I'll tell you who you can trust. You can trust Brendan. I know him from the first day I arrived in Bray.
'I think everyone in Bray knows Brendan. We know what's he is. He's a decent, honest, hardworking guy. That's the sort of man I want to vote for.'
Brendan said the endorsement was a great boost to the campaign because 'we haven't a massive team but we've plenty of spirit'.
Brendan said that through his former role as a community guard he has been getting a great reaction on the doors. 'Politics is about people', he said.
