I am standing as a Jersey Liberal Conservative candidate for Deputy in St Saviour in this election because I believe that the skills and abilities that I have gathered throughout my career will place me in good stead to make a difference. I am Jersey born and have lived in the Parish of St Saviour for a total of 29 years.
I took up the position of Chief Executive at Citizens Advice Jersey in November, 2010. My career background began with a period of time in the finance industry, where I gained a qualification in financial planning. I then moved into the Civil Service and worked at the Social Security Department, having responsibilities for fraud and compliance. After obtaining a qualification in the Data Protection Law, I went on to become the Department’s Data Protection Officer. I also studied for a qualification in the Freedom of Information Law at this time.
In my current role at Headway Jersey, I still regularly liaise with Government Departments and politicians to highlight issues that affect Islanders’ lives. I campaign for social change and seek to influence policy makers by suggesting solutions to problems, thus improving island life for all our citizens.
In March 2020 I was asked to assist with the Island’s pandemic response and help to lead the Community Taskforce which was set up as part of the government COVID Team, to co-ordinate a wide range of support for Islanders, underpinned by safe and sustainable volunteering. This has been an Island-wide effort, delivered in partnership with the Voluntary and Community Sector, parishes and businesses. I was proud to receive the Bailiff’s Gold Award for my efforts during this tumultuous time.
I have campaigned successfully on many social issues and regularly made comment to media outlets and put pressure on policy makers to help bring about real change that positively affects the lives of Islanders. My recent work has taught me so much about the problems that people living in this Island face on a daily basis. I trust this has helped you to see that I am worthy of your vote.
Honorary Police – I have undertaken voluntary work when I served as a Centenier for the Parish of St Helier from 1997 to 2001, a position that I found both challenging and rewarding. I have always been a strong supporter of the parish system.
Employment Forum – I had a seat on the Employment Forum for ten years and until recently held the position of Deputy Chairman for that organisation.
Liberation Day Celebrations – For the last twenty years I have been actively involved in the organisation and co-ordination of the Liberation Day celebrations. This is a special day for the whole Island and an event that I always look forward to with pride. I consider myself fortunate to be able to play a part in making sure that the event runs smoothly.
I am proud to stand with our coalition Progress Party colleagues to work together for Jersey.
