Use the links across the top to see their responses to each of these questions. The responses are displayed in alphabetical order (by surname).

WHY ARE YOU STANDING FOR SENATOR?

Gerard Baudains

Gerard Baudains

Because Jersey is at a crossroads and I have the experience to help. We are over-reliant on one industry which will increasingly be under attack from outside.

Exacerbating our impending financial problems is a public sector that is out of proportion to Jersey's needs.


Nick Le Cornu

Nick Le Cornu

I want to believe in the democratic process that reform can be achieved via the ballot box.


Francis Le Gresley

Francis Le Gresley

I am ready to take my extensive work within the community onto a bigger stage.

I consider that I have the intelligence, enthusiasm and relevant skills to become a Minister and have the statesman like qualities to be an effective ambassador for our island.


Phil Maguire

Phil Maguire

To stop the government from taxing us into oblivion.

Their opinion that tax increases have no effect is just stupid. They damage local businesses and drive them out of the marketplace as has happened when GST was introduced.


Gino Risoli

Gino Risoli

A much fairer society. The very best representation possible.

However, without accountability nothing of real consequence can be achieved. Accountability and how to achieve it is the platform for my manifesto.


Patrick Ryan

Patrick Ryan

My years as a Deputy show that I am effective, experienced and positive about Jersey.

We need stability and maturity and a person able to draw support from all sides of the States in order to achieve carefully thought out change towards a fairer society in the next 16 months.


Geoff Southern

Geoff Southern

After 8 years in the States as a hard-working deputy, I believe I have developed the experience, skills and understanding required to take on the responsibility of the island-wide mandate.

I have always taken on major issues and contributed to policy-making in the States.


Stuart Syvret

Stuart Syvret

I gave up my seat in order to cause - and contest - this by-election on a simple anti-corruption platform.

For twenty years as a States member, I was consistent in my courage and honesty. But we can only change our corrupted systems of governance if that is what the public want.


Peter Remon-Whorrall

Peter Remon-Whorrall

To contribute, rather than take from society. If elected, I'll be off income support and paying income tax. Jersey needs the money.

I studied under Roy Le Herrissier so I understand the job, partly I have a wealth of free local expertise to call on. I hope to be good financial value.
