Download My Manifesto
I came to government in the Vale By-Election at the end of 2016. I promised the public a fierce defence of Guernsey, its peoples, its culture and its way of life. I kept my word.
I have consistently flown the flag for common sense over ideology and the respect for the public purse. Sadly, not all those battles have been won.
I am President of the States Assembly and Constitution Committee. After the Referendum it fell to me to put together a team to deliver the Island’s first ever Island Wide General Election. Against all odds my team delivered that Referendum result.
The next four years will be about the Economy, Education and Employment. Having spent my life in business, creating employment opportunities, I know two things; how difficult it is to earn money and how easy it is to spend it. “There is no such thing as public money, there is only taxpayer’s money” a Prime minister once said.
As someone who was elected to represent the People; in every debate and at every Committee meeting, in every vote I have scrutinised and put value-for-money first.
The next few years will not be easy. Your elected representatives will need to hold their nerve and you will need to elect individuals that you can trust. Some decisions will not be easy for any of us and government will not be for the faint hearted.
I believe I have served to the best of my ability and, if elected, will serve the next four years under the same principles.
