15th October - Senators & Constables Elections
26th November - Deputies Elections

Constables - Len Norman (St Clement)

Len Norman

Senator Len Norman is hoping to swap one seat in the States chamber for another.

He started his career in politics twenty-five years ago as a deputy and is now a Senator.

If he wins the Constable election he'll be only the second person in history to have been elected into all three positions in the States of Jersey.

He says it's always been an ambition of his to be the father of the parish and believes St Clement is under threat from over-development and thinks he'll be able to stand up against that threat.

Senator Len Norman has confirmed that he plans to run for Constable in St Clement – meaning that there will be at least three new Senators in the States next year.

The Senator, who is the second longest-serving States Member, will join Chief Minister Frank Walker and Home Affairs Minister Wendy Kinnard in giving up his seat on the Senatorial benches. He entered the States as a Deputy for St Clement in 1983.

Sitting Constable Derek Gray has already announced that he is not standing again. He was nominated by Senator Norman when he was returned unopposed at the start of the year.

Senator Norman served for four terms as Deputy of the parish between 1983 and 1996 before two terms as a Senator.

"As things stand I am planning to run for Constable," said Senator Norman (61). "It is something that I have always been interested in and I would have stood six years ago but I was tied up with my role as Education Committee president."

Constable Nomination

Maureen Hamel, who originally nominated Len Norman as a Deputy of the parish 25 years ago, put his name forward again last night as the new Constable. Mrs Hamel said that Mr Norman had represented the parish as a Deputy for 12 years and had gone on to serve as a Senator for a similar length of time.

His political career had included the presidencies of Social Security, Harbours and Airport, Housing, and Education.

Despite a busy and demanding political life, his involvement with the parish had included being a roads inspector, treasurer of St Clement's Battle of Flowers Association, and he was currently management committee chairman of Le Squez Youth Club and patron of St Clement's Sports Club.

Election Manifesto - 200 Word Version

As Constable I would:

  • Continue to oppose inappropriate, large scale development in our parish. This is an issue I feel very strongly about and have campaigned vigorously, and with some success, to maintain the rural aspect and culture of St Clement.
  • Bring to fruition the sheltered housing/retirement homes project.
  • Press for traffic calming measures particularly in the 'village' area near the Parish Church and other hotspots.
  • Improve communications with parishioners by and initiate a "Welcome Pack" for new residents of our parish.
  • Ensure that the Parish Hall is the centre of our parochial social and cultural life.
  • Work with the Rector and churchwardens to improve the parking facilities for visitors to the Church and Caldwell Hall.
  • Be available to all parishioners at all reasonable times.
  • Provide strong and vibrant representation in the States in the interests of St Clement parishioners.
  • Continue to oppose indirect taxations such as the Goods and Services Tax.
  • Maintain the campaign for a general election with all States Members being elected on the same day.
  • Work to maintain the parish rate as low as possible without curtailing the services parishioners have a right to expect.
  • With the support of parishioners, develop a kerbside recycling scheme.
