Anyone can set out a list of issues at a given time.
Far beyond that though, is the truth that style of approach and motivation matters.
Being willing to listen and to reflect on a position are of enduring importance.
I am someone who feels strongly compelled to understand and get to the heart of issues, to seek the right and just course of action, who speaks up and challenges when things are wrong (even against the odds!) and who seeks to influence and persist for the best course of action. This is what drives me. It relies on curiosity, an openness to be informed, and at times, a strong will, because it is not always easy. I have demonstrated this in my Legislative Council and Tynwald roles already.
I have already thoroughly enjoyed getting to understand the different communities in Glenfaba & Peel in a deeper way. I recognise that these communities are different and have different needs. I value that, and if elected I pledge to take care in that regard across the constituency, to be around and to carry out the role of MHK in a conscientious way with strong representation. It is in the spirit of this approach, and with these values, along with presenting my manifesto, that I ask you to put your trust in me to be your House of Keys representative in the service and interests of Glenfaba & Peel, and the Isle of Man.
Thank you and best wishes,
