Public servant, Lyndsay Feltham, to stand as Reform Jersey candidate in the St Helier No. 3/4 by-election
Westmount resident and public servant, Lyndsay Feltham, has announced her candidacy in the upcoming by-election in St Helier No. 3/4 district.
Mrs Feltham was born in Jersey and has spent over 12 years working as a public servant, both in Jersey and for the State Government in Western Australia.
“I am standing in this election because I want to support the delivery of positive change for the benefit of the Island. I am standing as a Reform Jersey candidate as I believe that we can deliver more together, working as a team.”
“I firmly believe that it is the duty of the government to maximise the value of the services that it provides to the people. For me, this does not mean austerity-driven budget cuts and a continuous drive for savings. It means keeping people at the heart of decision making, encouraging public sector innovation, and involving the community to co-design the services best suited to meet their needs. More listening and more action.”
Party chairman Senator Sam Mézec said “we are really pleased to be supporting Lyndsay in the by-election. She has an in-depth knowledge of the political issues facing the Island. Her experience working in the public sector in both Jersey and Australia, as well as supporting her mother’s campaigns when she was younger, will be invaluable in making her an effective States Member from day one.”
