Who is Ross Hussey?

I am best described as an 'Omagh' man and a 'Tyrone' man as these two places mean the most to me. I was born in Omagh, brought up and educated in Omagh and have lived here all my life - for that reason I am best placed to serve West Tyrone constituents.

I have a keen interest in politics and this passion is entwined with the area I live. I get involved in local issues and community issues, because these are what matter to the ordinary citizen in West Tyrone.

I was fortunate in many ways in that I was able to help people by using my working knowledge of insurance and I was often asked to come into the Ulster Unionist office in Omagh to give advice to constituents. When the Council seat in Omagh became vacant I was asked to stand and in May 2005 I was elected to Omagh District Council.

  • Welfare Reform Speech

    26 May 2015

    We have to remember that we are part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.  That is the political reality.  The British Government decide how much money is going to come to Northern Ireland.  There is not a bottomless pit;  there is not a bucket of money that we can go to and take out of every time we want it.  


Time for a change

I was first elected to Omagh District Council in May 2005 and in that seven year period I was closely involved with community groups in the town. We have seen very positive steps forward, specifically, with the redevelopment of the Hospital Road community centre, the revamp of the King George's Field area of Campsie, the new cycle paths and enhanced footways in Festival Park and the traffic calming scheme on the Kevlin Road to name but a few. Working with local communities we see an enhanced local spirit and my colleagues and I will endeavour to continue to support these initiatives.

Time for another change

One of the campaigns that has stuck with me since I became an active politician has been the local hospital campaign. I have attended rallies and protests in Omagh, Enniskillen, Londonderry, Limavady, Belfast, even going to the constituency of the former Secretary of State, Shaun Woodward MP, in St Helens in England. I will continue to campaign in support of the Tyrone County Hospital and its staff.
