Failt erriu – Welcome

Thank you for visiting my website; I hope you find the content useful.

A big thank you to the people of Onchan for putting their trust and confidence in me during the 2016 House of Keys General Election.

House of Keys General Election 2021:

Over the last nine years it has been an enormous privilege and honour to serve and represent the people of Onchan, firstly as an Onchan District Commissioner for four years, before being elected to the House of Keys in September 2016.

My primary focus has always been on representing Onchan together with the wider Manx Community through supporting individuals, scrutinising government policies and ensuring that the right decisions are backed up by solid evidence, however difficult those decisions might be for the island.

On Thursday 23rd September 2021 a House of Keys General Election will be held, and it is now my intention to stand for re-election for the Constituency of Onchan.

Over the past nine years, I believe that I have been very visible and engaging with all aspects of our community, approachable, hardworking and bringing a new level of energy to such important roles.

I would also like to think that the people of Onchan have found in me a strong voice to ensure good governance and oversight on those key decisions that are made on their behalf involving finance, delivery and support, especially regarding the Area Plan for the East Public Inquiry, public sector housing, telecoms, Manx Gas, community policing, and also throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

I am looking forward to engaging further with Constituents over the next few months ahead of this important House of Keys election.
