REFORM Jersey has appointed its first deputy leader.

Deputy Lyndsay Feltham – who was elected to represent St Helier Central in 2022 – was previously the party’s chairperson.

In her new role, she will sit on the party executive committee, which is responsible for the governance of the party, as well as deputise for the leader when they are unavailable.

In September, Reform Jersey members adopted a new constitution which established this role, alongside other changes intended to strengthen the party.

Deputy Feltham said she was “honoured” to be the first to take on the role.

She continued: “I look forward to working with our Party Executive Committee to grow our organisation further and Parliamentary Party members as we continue to deliver on our manifesto.”

Current party leader Deputy Sam Mézec said that he had worked closely with Deputy Feltham in recent years and that he was “pleased” to support her.

“Lyndsay has played a prominent part in developing our party and I know she will continue to help drive us forward as a government-in-waiting,” he continued.
