Minister of health in Guernsey Hunter Adam

A Scot by birth, I came to Guernsey to work as a doctor in 1984 and have lived in Castel for 24 years.

First elected in 2001, in 7 years as Deputy I have served on:-
3 Departments, Home, Education and Health and Social Services
2 States Committees- Public Sector Remuneration (as Vice-Chairman) and Scrutiny
Board of Guille-Alles and Priaulx Library
Electricity Board before commercialization

As a States member I consider issues by research, listening to views, analyzing, then reach a balanced conclusion. In debate I argue this view but accept the majority decision.

I have the enthusiasm and commitment to serve another term and have the experience and ability to be effective in government.

I want my chosen home to continue being a good place for all islanders to live; to maintain its independence and traditions within an increasingly interdependent world; to have a successful economy that can provide for a good standard of public services while maintaining the balance of population and having concern for the physical and social environment.

My aims for the next House include:-

Government spending revenue expenditure must be vigilantly controlled. Priorities must be defined and agreed.

Economy a vibrant finance sector is essential; new enterprise in other sectors should be encouraged

Taxation the principle of zero-ten should be supported. Additional taxation should protect those least well-off.

Education - redevelopment of Les Beaucamps and La Mare de Carteret; assessment of primary school place requirements; extension of pre-school provision.

Health - reduction in preventable ill-health; improved mental health provision; continued scrutiny of off-island placement to ensure best treatment and cost-efficiency.

Waste treatment facilities for both solid and liquid waste. I support recycling where viable and incineration for the remainder, including sludge from sewage treatment.

Policing resourcing for community policing to tackle petty crime and vandalism.
