No, I am an independent candidate.
What are your main national issues?
What are your main local issues?
Douglas town is in a constant state of regeneration. While facilities are being lost to large apartment blocks no replacements are included. Residential areas are becoming more populated, particularly on the promenade, but there are no shops or cafes for new residents incorporated in the plans. Developers should be urged to include retail units in their designs.
Anagh Coar and the surrounding area is still without a community centre and police station, Why?
The area could be kept cleaner with less litter.
What do you believe you would bring to government as an MHK?
Most of my working life I have taken on responsibility, managed, got things done and seen things through. I have helped prepare budgets and stuck to them. Should I be elected to represent the people then that is what I will do.
