Am puzzled by todays Andy Jones JEP column – about my speech citing me as – Deputy Pope , Master of the broad brush , Napoleon (on FB ), really ? . Planning and Environment is a very broad portfolio . Please check out my actual speech.
I would like to thank all constituents and supporters who have encouraged and helped me throughout the years , in preparation for todays election for Jersey environment minister.
It was good to have an election and I want to put on record my thanks and acknowledgment of the fine work done by Deputy Luce in the rural environment . It was a very close result indeed 24-23 in my favour with 1 abstention . Probably the agenda for future urban and planning policy made the small difference between us . I will do very best to fulfil the trust placed in me today.
A huge day Thursday 7 June . Jersey Chief Minister Elect John Le Fondre is presenting his nominations for Ministerial appointments . I am very proud to have been nominated by John for Environment Minister , a role which I have been aspiring to and working for ever since first elected in 2011 and my work subsequently . I am pleased that there is almost certainly going to be another nomination , which reflects the importance of this role for Jersey. It is good for democracy that the merits of candidates and policy issues are weighed up by members . The election is likely to be this afternoon. I am going to give it my very best .
Caring for our Island , our environment
A snapshot of the big Island Plan issues which the new States and the public will have to decide. (Excuse informal attire)
As the JEP has not included responses to their election questionnaire in todays supplement because of being elected unopposed, I am publishing my responses for the benefit of electors.
