Former Minister Tim Crookall has announced he will contest Glenfaba and Peel in this year’s General Election.
Mr Crookall previously served as MHK for Peel before being elevated to the Legislative Council. He withdrew his nomination for the Council last year with many expecting him to seek a return to the Keys.
In a statement, he said: ‘I would like to announce that I will be standing as a candidate in the forth coming General Election. Having spoken to many many people, I am heartened by the words of support and encouragement that I have received from people of Glenfaba and Peel and I would very much welcome the opportunity to stand as a candidate and hopefully represent the residents of the constituency.
‘I very much look forward to seeing as many of you as possible prior to the election to discuss your concerns and my thoughts and reasons for standing. In the meantime I can be contacted on 497782 or email me at email@example.com.’
Mr Crookall joins sitting MHKs Geoffrey Boot and Ray Harmer, MLC Kate Lord-Brennan and the Green Party’s Leo Cussons in declaring his intention to contest the constituency in September.
This year’s General Election is on Thursday September 23, if you’re planning to vote, make sure you’re registered and if you’re planning to stand, make sure to let Gef know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
