Another busy day. I’m touched by the different ways this role puts you into touch with every aspect of islanders lives. Starting the day with someone reaching out in honour of the parents personal memories of occupation to meeting a parishioner who is being let down by a landlord
I hope our government will be following this decision for Jersey communities.
I have repeatedly asked for an end to this charge. It is divisive and does not put children first.
There is also money unspent from Brexit preparation funds from 2016 to 2018.

Wonderful afternoon at the St Saviour senior citizens lunch. Such a wonderful event put on by the Constable and the parish. Thank you for a lovely meal and brilliant conversation. @StSaviourJersey
We have to do better at disposing of our rubbish. Litter is becoming a huge problem in this island.

IMPORTANT: Hi all, I’ve arrived at Bagot road here at @StSaviourJersey for an update from the scene. I can confirm the road is still closed & please can all use Victoria road as a diversion. I’m in contact to open the Georgetown Methodist Church hall for islanders to get a cuppa
The Chief Minister rightly reminds us that 21% of islanders are employed in the finance sector and that it generates 40% of our GDP. So we need to help it overcome the challenges of Brexit and intl pressures. @jerseyfinance
It may be early but the @jerseyfinance Annual Review event is standing room only!
Think the UK government just survived a no confidence motion with 52% of the House of Commons vote..that’s um, rather ironic...now again we hope for our UK counterparts to pull together to move forward for all our sakes on #Brexit
I'm listening to Jersey Customs helping island business leaders understand how Brexit will affect them.
It's great the govt is holding these sessions but they also confirm the immense waste of time, energy and money that is #brexit
MORNING: As the saying goes, 24 hours is a long time in politics! After a busy day yesterday a very quiet & reflective feeling here at the states buildings. Meetings so far chatting all the events. Much to do today but looking forward my next meeting catching up with @MindJersey
When it comes to the current role of Senior civil servants in Jersey's government, @JEPnews has it spot on!
Senior interim pay in the States of Jersey is a racket...even Guernsey can see that!
