Monty Tadier

Candidate for Deputy St. Brelade


It has been my privilege to serve as a St Brelade deputy since 2008. In that time, I have always sought to be an active and accessible constituency representative, holding regular surgeries and being a strong voice for the community.

In my 14 years in the States Assembly, I have worked in scrutiny and in government. In all these roles, I have demonstrated the ability to work effectively and collaboratively, both with party colleagues and the wider membership.

You will shortly be electing representatives who will form the next government. It is important that the island chooses candidates who are not just able to deal with parish matters, but who have demonstrated effective leadership, and are also able to deal with important islandwide and international issues.

Track Record 

Below are some of my achievements of the past 4 years.  I have:

  • Secured permanent and sustainable funding for the Culture, Arts and Heritage sector. We are now starting to see the fruits of that investment.
  • Established the Corn Riots Festival, (28th September) as an annual event including a one-off public holiday in 2021 (watch this space)
  • Championed Arts and Heritage in all its forms, including Jèrriais
    Chaired the French Festival
  • Represented the Government and the States Assembly at various international summits and conferences relating to Culture, Languages and Multilingualism.

It has been a pleasure to work in this area of politics, which I am passionate about. I wish to continue this work in the future to develop and promote Jersey’s unique cultural identity at home and abroad.

In the area of Healthcare, I have:

  • Worked with oncology patients, medical experts and the Health Minister to explore options for the on-island provision of Radiotherapy.
  • Changed the law to allow GPs to prescribe medicinal cannabis for those who need it. I have heard many personal accounts of how this has transformed people’s lives who would otherwise be living with unbearable pain and suffering.
  • Advocated for the rights of elderly and vulnerable residents in care settings, and their families, over the COVID pandemic.

Health is the great leveller. I am proud of our frontline workers, but there are urgent issues to address in healthcare, including reducing waiting times for operations and making access to GPs much more affordable. I am committed to action in both of these areas.

In terms of island infrastructure, I have:

  • Amended the island plan to include a masterplan for the regeneration of Les Quennevais and surrounding areas.
  • Opposed plans to put more dense development in St Brelade
  • Agreed cross party support for a form of empty property tax for long-term vacant residential properties.
  • Implemented through fares for easier and cheaper bus travel.

In this next term, I will push for greater investment in the Quennevais area, including proper consultation with residents and a masterplan.

In addition, Healthcare, Housing and Heritage, will be my priorities.
