Alderney States members election 2012: Candidates

Post by GD on Thu 15 Nov 2012, 9:33 pm

On 17 November, voters in Alderney are due to elect five of the States members, who sit in the island's government.

A total of 1,209, which is just over half the island's population, have registered to vote.

There are 12 candidates for the five positions, the same number as stood in the 2010 election.

The five successful candidates are due to serve a four-year term in the States of Alderney.

Every two years half of the 10 States members are elected and the president, who has a deciding vote in the event of a tie, also serves a four-year term.

The candidates are Caroline Ely, Ken Hampton, Neil Harvey, Martin Hunt, Louis Jean, Boyd Kelly, Helen Martin, Lin Maurice, Robert McDowall, Chris Rowley, Francis Simonet and Bill Walden.

The BBC gave each candidate 150 words to express why they think people should vote for them. Here is what they said:

......THE BOSS......

"Always be yourself because the people who mind don't matter, and the people who matter don't mind"
