Dear Parishioner

This election is a chance for the people of St Ouen to vote for real change with an independent candidate. If elected. my first priority would be to work with the right people to get things moving on the building of the sheltered units for the elderly of the parish, along with affordable starter homes that will bring hope and security to those who need it the most. I am standing on a platform of positive change, with one clear and simple aim to improve the lives of all Islanders whilst creating an environment for job growth and prosperity for everyone.

Jersey is full of potential if managed correctly. There is no reason why Jersey could not have one of the highest standards of living in the world but only if we had a government with a clear vision of how to get there. This can only happen if the right people are voted into office with a clear manifesto with clear objectives once elected.

Unfortunately, many of our present representatives have proven they are incapable of making the right decisions on behalf of the people they are supposed to represent. Ordinary people are simply struggling to get by with everyday living expenses. It is very clear to most people that under the current States leadership, Jersey has become a more unequal society. Average earnings have not increased for the majority of people. I simply refuse to accept that any of this is inevitable and that nothing can be done to reverse this downward spiral, we can and must implement new strategies that will improve people’s lives.

Our current government has failed to control the one key issue that has the most effect on all of our lives. They have consistently failed to find a workable solution to the problem of population growth. A new policy is urgently needed. They have let down our young people by failing to find a sustainable solution for Higher Education which is urgently needed to stem the brain drain from the island. We want our young and brightest to have a future here, so their parents can enjoy their grandchildren.

Our government has consistently failed to reign in the wasteful spending at the senior levels of the civil service. Jersey deserves far better than this, I believe that Jersey deserves better representation, which is why I have decided to put my name forward as a candidate in this election. I doubt many people are unaware of the huge challenges facing Jersey and that tough decisions will need to be made with regards spending and financial management. Nobody has all the answers but if given the opportunity I believe I can work on behalf of the public to make this Island a better place for everyone. Not Just an elite few.

My Seven Key Pledges

I believe that the main focus for our next government should be:

1. To reign in the wasteful spending at the senior level of government whilst reducing taxation on ordinary people.
2. To make a concerted drive to improve the standard of living for all Islanders.
3. To implement the recommendations of the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry, to ensure all of Jersey’s young people can thrive.
4. To represent Jersey’s interests at the highest level throughout Brexit negotiations, to ensure Jersey’s place in the world is safe and respected.
5. To manage and control population growth sensibly.
6. To expand our sheltered housing model.
7. To build decent affordable housing for our young families.

I would truly like to represent not only the people of St Ouen, but the people of Jersey as well. If elected I will not let you down. A better successful Jersey is possible and I am determined to make it happen.

THE ECONOMY AND FINANCE INDUSTRY

The finance industry is an essential part of our economic well being and economic wealth. We must robustly defend it along with our constitutional rights. This must be done against a background of openness, transparency, and honesty. This is vital for our economy and Jersey's long-term prosperity. There is a danger that present States policy is driving an economic wedge between the finance industry and the general community. I will do my utmost to support the industry and solve these problems.
