Watterson to stand in General Election

Tue, 27 Jul 2021

Juan Watterson has declared his intention to stand for Rushen in this year's General Election.

Mr Watterson saod: "When I first stood for the House of Keys it was on the basis that we needed MHKs who understood public services and could provide real value for money. This is as much needed now as it was then."

"During my last five years as Speaker and Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee and Poverty Committee, I have continued the fight for value for money, better public services and a society where no-one is left behind."

"The next five years will be dominated by financial pressures, and the fall-out from the pandemic. We will need to instil confidence that Government can still provide a great place to live and work despite this turbulence. I believe over my fifteen years of service I have a strong record of doing better with less money."

The Island will go to the polls on 23rd September.
