Cllr John Kyle
John Kyle was born in East Belfast and attended Grosvenor Grammar School and Queen’s University Belfast. He graduated as a doctor in 1975 and has practiced medicine in Belfast and London.
For many years he has been involved in community development projects and partnerships such as the Oasis Centre, the East Belfast Community Health Information Project (EBCHIP) and the East Belfast Partnership.
His motivation springs from a strong Christian commitment and a desire to see communities damaged by conflict and deprivation transformed and renewed.
He joined the Progressive Unionist Party in response to a new and inclusive vision of unionism articulated by David Ervine. He believes passionately that the future lies in peaceful co-operation and co-existence but that this is best achieved by overcoming social injustices and the inequalities of opportunity that blight working class communities.
