Election platform:

I am standing for Senator because I would like to put my name forward for a Ministerial role and believe that any future Minister should have an Island wide mandate. In three years in the States I have been overseeing a significant change programme at both the harbour and airport. We have delivered lower overall fares, more air routes to the UK and Europe, and last year we achieved the highest overall increase in passenger numbers since 1993. I took the Harbour Administration Law through the States which is the biggest change to the way in which the harbour is operated in 40 years. These changes will make it more efficient and far more commercial.

I support a strong and diverse economy that offers local people the training and opportunities to compete for the best jobs. This is essential to control population. States spending must be controlled to prevent anymore unwelcome taxes. Controlling spending does not have to mean cuts to essential services but should ensure public money is spent wisely to deliver the same service more efficiently and at a better price. Environmental issues including no more building on green fields and better support for senior citizens are priorities.

Proposers: Bruce Willing, Nicola d’Alessandro, Sarra Clyde-Smith, David Seymour, David Langlois, Bill Morvan, Peter Le Gallais, Robert Jones, Wendy Arrowsmith and Mike Wavell.

Nomination speech:

Bruce Willing said that Deputy Alan Maclean had shown his worth to the States by taking responsibility for the harbours and Airport and increasing passenger numbers and adding more destinations for both. At the Harbour, he had introduced the Jersey Boat Show, which achieved sales of £4.2m in its first year, said Mr Willing. Airport arrivals had gone up by the biggest proportion since 1993 because of the Deputy’s work, he said. And he praised the Deputy – who runs Mulberry Estates – for adding a new commercial drive to the harbours and the Airport. Mr Willing said that the candidate was a man of action, maturity, integrity and proven ability as a businessman and as a politician. Deputy Maclean, who has served for three years as a Deputy in St Helier No 2, was a happily married man who was educated in Jersey and who had two young sons, he said.
