I’m an Independent; a productive, hard-worker with one of the highest success rates for winning votes in the States Assembly, achieved by thorough research, building consensus and a clear vision. That is how I deliver.
I’m Independent as I’ve witnessed factions, divisions, opposition-for-opposition’s-sake and self-indulgent personality clashes take priority over serving the public and solving our problems – if that’s party politics, you can keep it.
Independent because to restrict further, to a single party, the pool of talent available for the top jobs is crazy. Good government is a coalition of all the talents, working together.
We must work together to shield people from soaring cost of living – no tax rises – we must solve the current housing crisis and ensure it never happens again.
My work as Minister for Housing and Communities
Working together with the construction industry, the Jersey Homes Promise gives first-time-buyers, up-sizers, right-sizers, local families, priority purchase over buy-to-let investors. A £10m Shared Equity Scheme will enable first-time-buyers to defer 25% of the purchase price.
There’s more to do on empty homes, helping empty-nesters and the Homelessness Strategy.
I back 100% Andium’s visionary plans to use Gas Place to double the size of the Town Park.
St Helier is woefully lacking in open green space – fact. Yes, Primary School need is an equal priority, I have ideas to accommodate this. But only Gas Place is available to extend the park.
The St Saviour’s road area is taking increased density – the payback for that must be improvements, amenity space, and safe, pleasant, green routes throughout. The same is true of the Green Street and the Havre des Pas area, the same is true of the Waterfront.
Anyone who doesn’t understand this, doesn’t understand St Helier.
I love representing this district, I hope that by giving me one of your votes you’ll allow me to continue working hard on your behalf.
