Ecologist Erica Spencer has announced her candidacy for this year’s General Election in Ramsey.
Mrs Spencer has voiced her opposition to the plans for Ramsey Marina, working on the campaign against it and was. founding member of Ramsey Heritage Trust.
In a statement she said: ‘I am standing for election because I would like to bring about change in Ramsey. I believe that all of us who live in this town care passionately about it and that our strength is in our positive attitudes and community spirit. The changes I would like to see brought about are a greater number and variety of jobs on offer locally, affordable housing for young people and community space, such as the Courthouse, where group events and entertainment may be staged.
‘We want to see our town grow with more opportunities for business, health, education and leisure without compromising the integrity of the assets we already have such as the harbour, townscape and, of course, the South beach.’
Mrs Spencer joins Dr Alex Allinson, Lawrie Hooper, Jonathan Kinrade, Luke Parker and Leonard Singer in contesting the Ramsey constituency.
