Another Liberal Vannin Candidate Announcement
Liberal Vannin is delighted to announce that Carol Jempson has been selected to stand for election in the constituency of Douglas East. Carol, has lived on the island with husband Paul for 25 years. Carol is currently the HR Manager of Clerical Medical International (part of the HBOS group) and has over 20 years experience in the finance sector and personnel having held several management roles in her professional career.
She joins several other Liberal Vannin candidates throughout the Island standing for election to the House of Keys in November including Douglas West and Douglas South candidates Roland Ardern-Corris and Bill Malarkey.
Party Leader Peter Karran MHK said "I am delighted to have Carol as part of the team to get some accountability and audit back into the Manx Government which must be the worst Government in living history. Carol has a wealth of practical financial, personnel and managerial experience gained in the finance industry here on the island. Her first hand ‘grass roots’ experience will be invaluable to the party and Carol is well versed with the current work permit system and its failings.
Carol has brought important insights relating to immigration and work permit system to the table during the development of the Party’s immigration policy and will be the party’s spokeswoman on immigration. Carol’s outspoken, forthright and highly principled approach together with her knowledge and experience will enhance what the Party is trying to achieve.“
Carol said that she understands both the need to protect the unique way of life of the island and its people, alongside the realities of a successful economy and the way it should be managed. “We all know the current government has underperformed and left a huge problem for the next administration to sort out. But it is only Liberal Vannin who are prepared to state clearly how they intend to address the mounting issues facing our island with a coordinated and coherent set of policies.
The party’s manifesto clearly sets out a path for the next administration and tackles the key issues which threaten our island today and into the future. The Liberal Vannin Party’s manifesto is both a recipe for change and a blueprint for protecting our prosperous and caring society.
The current government has lost all credibility with scandals such as the resignation of the Chief Minister, The MEA, IRIS, Mount Murray, and more recently the financial mismanagement of the Health Service. I believe we have lost our way and have ended up in a corner where we are unable to ‘see the wood for the trees’.
We cannot move forward until we have strong political leadership with a clear and committed vision for the future. The next government must tear itself away from serving itself and focus on building a solid political and government infrastructure which is efficient, effective, accountable and truly serves the people of our island.”
Carol Jempson is well known around the Island for her involvement in many aspects of local life and can often be seen pounding the streets walking to keep fit. She has been heavily involved in the organisation of the Parish Walk for the past 10 years, was appointed to the Work Permit Committee in 2005, and is the Chair designate of the IOM Branch of the Chartered Management Institute.
Carol concluded by saying “The Liberal Vannin Party has a strong, well thought out manifesto which first and foremost has the interests of the Island and its people at its heart. I hope the people of Douglas East will support me on 23rd November and elect me to help them get our island ‘back on track’.
