Philip Le Sueur

Candidate for Connétable in Trinity

I am offering myself for re-election for a third term as Connétable of Trinity. I believe that with the current changes to the electoral system, and the loss of a dedicated Parish Deputy the role of Connétable will become increasingly important as the link between the Parish and the Assembly. 

In my previous two terms as Connétable I have always tried to represent the best interests of the parishioners of Trinity whilst balancing this with my responsibilities as a States Member to also represent the best interests of all Islanders. 

My vision for the future of the Parish will be to continue to build on the existing strong sense of community in addition to which. 

  • I would like to see the development of more retirement homes close to the centre of the Parish.  
  • Improving walking and cycling connectivity throughout the parish and making our roads safer for all users. 
  • Continue with the introduction of affordable green initiatives in the drive towards carbon reduction. 
  • Promote increased openness and transparency throughout government (my door remains open as always for anyone with questions) 

In addition to my responsibilities as Connétable during this last term I have been the Chair of the Planning Committee and a Commissioner for Jersey Overseas Aid and if I was fortunate enough to be re-elected, I would hope to continue in both of those roles. I would not seek additional responsibilities as I firmly believe the primary role of the Connétable is service to the Parish. 

I am proud to be a founding member of the Jersey Alliance, examination of my voting record will reveal that I am well aligned with other likeminded members of the Assembly who are also part of the Alliance. if we are going to make real progress during the life of the next Assembly, party politics will inevitably play a role, we cannot continue to drift along as a group of 49 well-meaning individuals there has to be some consensus. That said I will always vote for what I believe to be in the best interests of the parishioners that I hope to represent.
