Marown commissioner Alison Lynch is standing for election to the House of Keys in September in Middle.

Mrs Lynch currently works for Dohle Corporate and Trust Services at Fort Anne and has done for more than 14 years.

Along with her husband, Martin, a charge nurse for the renal community service, she lives in Crosby and is ’extremely proud’ of the parish of Marown and the constituency of Middle.

She said she feels that she can make a positive contribution addressing challenges that the Isle of Man faces and can use her nine-plus years of local authority experience.

Her rivals are:

Jane Poole-Wilson, a lawyer who’s currently an MLC

Keiran Hannifin, a first-time candidate, is a part-time cleaner, graphic designer and illustrator.

David Fowler, who has stood for election unsuccessfully three times already, isw a landscape gardener.

Stu Peters, who quit his Manx Radio show last week.
