Elaine Millar

Candidate for Deputy St. John, St. Lawrence and Trinity

Who am I?  For the last seven years I have served the Island as the first female Viscount, with responsibility for important public services.   I am an advocate with extensive experience in law and financial services.  I was a partner of law firm Mourant du Feu & Jeune and a Director at RBS/NatWest International.  

I think analytically and logically and make well-reasoned decisions.  I have wide experience of leadership but work collaboratively with others.  I have energy, drive and determination.   

I am 59.  I have lived in Jersey since 1996 and in Trinity for over 20 years.  You will often find me walking with my dog, Coco, in our beautiful lanes and on the North coast. 

Why vote for me?  We remain in a period of uncertainty and volatility.  We need politicians who can think clearly, make well-considered decisions and deliver positive and effective outcomes for the people of Jersey.     

I believe:  

  • in honesty, integrity and fairness  
  • that education, housing, healthcare and open spaces should be accessible to all 
  • in open and transparent government.  

I want to help to preserve Jersey as a unique and special place to live and work, which offers a good quality of life for all our citizens.  To do that, we need to maintain a strong economy while meeting the needs of Islanders.   

How can I help?  The next Government faces significant challenges.  The areas where I believe I can contribute most are:   

Economy: I have a background in business and will 

  • support our financial services industry to continue competing successfully in the global marketplace 
  • support the local businesses that provide essential services and contribute to our quality of life, including farming and hospitality 
  • enable access for new businesses, particularly in the digital sector 
  • reduce red tape and ensure government processes work for business 
  • support continuing training and education for older adults. 

Housing: I will support initiatives to   

  • provide genuinely affordable social housing and remove the link between social and private sector rents 
  • require new developments to include green space and access to schools 
  • release Government land and brownfield sites for development 
  • support the Parishes to provide housing for their parishioners. 

Health and wellbeing: I will support initiatives to 

  • ensure that all children have the best start in life through access to good nutrition, education, healthcare, sport and play 
  • provide consistent and reliable social and personal care for those who need it 
  • support our medical professionals to provide the best care for islanders 
  • ensure recognition of and funding for the work of charities in supporting our public services.  

Please vote for me as one of your four deputies.  Thank you.   

I am grateful to my proposer and nominators:  Marcus Pallot, Alan Maclean, Rob Allo, Sonia Smith, Jane Rueb, Geoffrey Fisher, Anne Pryke, Tracey Le Brocq, John Harris and Terry Le Sueur.
