Deputy Monty Tadier has announced that he will be standing for re-election in St Brelade as a Reform Jersey candidate.

Deputy Tadier was first elected in 2008 and has served 4 consecutive terms as Deputy of St Brelade No. 2, making him the longest-serving representative of the parish.

He said - “I am proud to have served my home parish as a Deputy for the past 14 years. Over the years, I have always to stood up for fairness, equality and accountability for people across the Island. Particularly, I have always sought to be a strong voice in the States for the people of St Brelade; pensioners, young people and working families.’

This term, I am particularly proud of the work I was able to do in the Cultural Sector. In my role as the Ministerial lead for Arts, Culture and Heritage, I fought for more support and increased, sustainable funding for the whole sector, which I won, despite government opposition. We are now starting to see the fruits of this work, which I know will both be good for Jersey economically as well as socially. The Corn Riots Festival, French Festival and Jèrriais Festival, were all examples of supporting grass roots initiatives that are good for tourism, hospitality, the economy - and great for the general vibrancy of the island’s Arts Scene.”

I would love to continue this work, especially supporting our Creative Industries, event lead Tourism, as well as improving our sea transport links with France.”

Jersey is a beautiful place to work and live for so many reasons, however, many islanders struggle from day to day, with a high cost of living and all the problems that go with that. We must tackle this urgently if we are to give young families hope of staying in Jersey and having a good quality of life. I will continue to work hard to push for more affordable primary health care, free for those who need it; reduced waiting times for patients, without being forced to go private.”

I will continue to support environmental protection, opposing inappropriate development, and fighting for investment and regeneration in St Brelade and the Quennevais area.”

Deputy Tadier said he was ‘delighted’ to be running as part of a team with fellow party candidate Nigel Jones, who would be an asset to the Assembly.
