You have several elected representatives at different levels of government.
Your 7 Newtownards councillors represent you on Ards and North Down Borough Council. The Local Council is responsible for local services, including waste and recycling, leisure and community, building control and local economic and cultural development. Most councillors are not paid a salary, but get a basic allowance for the work they do.
Your 6 Strangford MLAs represent you on the Northern Ireland Assembly. The Northern Ireland Assembly has full authority over "transferred matters", which include agriculture, education, employment, the environment and health.
Your Strangford MP represents you in the House of Commons. The House of Commons is responsible for making laws in the UK and for overall scrutiny of all aspects of government.
As the UK left the European Union on 31st January 2020, you are no longer represented by MEPs.
