It has been an honour to serve the Parish of St Clément as Connétable for the past six years and I seek your support to continue in this role for another term.
I hope that I have proved to be the candidate truly committed to St Clement serving or having served as:-
DEPUTY OF THE PARISH
TREASURER AND PRESIDENT OF THE CLÉMENT BATTLE OF FLOWERS ASSOCIATION
PATRON OF ST CLÉMENT SPORTS CLUB
CHAIRMAN OF THE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE OF LE SQUEZ YOUTH CLUB.
In addition I am CHAIRMAN OF THE JERSEY FRIENDS OF THE ANTHONY NOLAN BONE MARROW TRUST
As your Constable
I have continued to oppose inappropriate, large scale development in our Parish. This is an issue I feel very strongly about and have campaigned vigorously, and with some success, to maintain the rural aspect and culture of St Clement;
Brought to fruition the Parish Retirement Homes project with over 50 apartments and cottages completed:
Improved road safety with a reduction in the speed limit throughout most of the Parish:
Attracted new recruits to the Honorary Police by direct contact with potential officers and encouraging employers, both private and public sector, to co-operate with and support the Honorary System:
Improved communications with Parishioners by introducing regular news by email and supported the highly valued Parish magazine:
With others, developed the Community Support Team which does so much to assist the more vulnerable members of our community:
Ensured that the Parish Hall is the centre of our parochial social and cultural life, including the provision of the most southerly Pétanque terrain the British Isles:
Kept any increase in the Parish Rate below inflation:
Assisted the Parish in Bloom team to continue to make environmental improvements throughout the Parish.
Served in the States as Chairman of the Privileges and Procedures Committee, the Jersey Branch of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association and the Comité des Connétables.
If re-elected I will continue to be available to all Parishioners at all reasonable times:
Continue to provide strong and vibrant representation in the States in the interests of St Clément parishioners:
Work with the Procurers du Bien Public to maintain the Parish Rate as low as possible without curtailing the services Parishioners have a right to expect.
Work with and support all organisations that are based in St Clement to be a truly inclusive Parish.
These are just some of the issues I have addressed and wish to address. Please contact me if there is any matter which you might wish to discuss, or if you would like a lift to the Parish Hall on polling day.
Thank you for reading this letter and I hope that I might have your support on May 16th
