I’m delighted to announce that I am putting myself forward again as a candidate in the General Election this September.
It has been an honour to represent and support the people of Glenfaba and Peel over the last five years.
During this time much has been accomplished through working together, none more so than our fight against Covid 19. Now in my role as Policy & Reform Minister, we are looking to the future: to reenergise our economy, seizing new opportunities through technology and green initiatives.
My passion is to improve lives in whatever ways possible and to make the Island an even better place. Locally, I’ve led a number of key projects including the reconstruction of the heritage trail, the rebuilding of Foxdale main road, the new Peel Bridge, the completion of Market Place and protecting the Peel marina from silting up.
Now funding has been achieved, I will continue to fight for the Peel Sewage Plant to be built, producing safe bathing for all the family, and the STEM block at QEII to be up and running,
The West was first to move forward with an integrated health and social care model, which now needs to be fully implemented, including residential and respite care in the West.
Nationally, infrastructure has been key to the economy such as the fibre rollout, the purchase of our lifeline the Steam Packet and the new ferry user agreement. However, social inclusion remains vitally important such as expanding affordable housing and the living wage.
While there has been much progress, there still remains more to do and complete.
Let’s seize our best future together
