Having witnessed the defunction of our current Government with great frustration, I have decided to put my name forward for election.
By way of background, I have always lived in the parish and attended both St Saviour’s primary school and Hautlieu. Whilst lacking any distinguishing qualifications, I’ve gained considerable experience, developing businesses in agriculture, retail/services and property.
I served as Chairman of the Jersey Schizophrenia Fellowship for a number of years, and recently co-founded (and currently chair) the charity Focus on Mental Illness. I chair the campaign group, End of Life Choices Jersey, which played a significant role in the recent decision by the States to approve the principle of an assisted dying law. I am an associate member of the group, Friends of our New Hospital, and served four years on the Employment Forum.
Whilst fond of the parish in which I have spent my entire life, under the old electoral system I would have sought the office of Senator; this is because of my very real interest in addressing the major problems that currently stand to reduce everyone’s quality of life.
This election brings with it a welcome opportunity to bring about a serious culture change. A change to openness and honesty; decisiveness and competence; clear and sensible decision making,
I’m determined to pursue this much needed change and ask if you would be kind enough to help by sparing me one of your votes on June 22nd.
