I would like everyone in Guernsey to feel that each of us can make a positive difference, in our own way, to our Bailiwick. I believe that being engaged citizens, and contributing to the thriving of our democracy, is a vital part of that. So I’m trying to do what I can, in an open and fair way, to give people tools and insights to help make sense of Guernsey’s political system and its broader context, and how to make constructive change.
I’m an island politician, a member of the States of Guernsey, for the political term 2016 to 2020. It is really important to me that people understand how our government works: so that I and my colleagues can be held to account for our choices, and so that ordinary islanders have the confidence and courage to stand for election next time.
The blog part of this site is most often updated. It includes updates about what the States is doing, and about projects that are especially dear to my heart. You can also find me on Twitter or Facebook or email me directly if you want to get in touch.
The resources page is a new initiative. I am trying to build up a library of useful resources for people who want to get more involved in our democracy. That’s you if you’re a citizen who wants to organise a campaign or make your voice heard in a consultation, or if you want to take a more active role by seeking public office as a States Member, non-States Member or member of the judiciary.
