Paul Craine

Candidate for Middle, Isle of Man House of Keys election 2016


Two votes… use one to vote for Paul Craine

Welcome to my election website. You will find here some items that introduce me as well as my 2016 Manifesto and my views on a range of topics under 'Blog'.

The Isle of Man has been through an extraordinarily difficult time. After five years of spending cuts and new forms of taxation we still have an annual deficit of £75 million and evidence of population decline. These key issues underlie everything else. We need level-headed people who understand the issues and care about the outcomes. There are still some tough decisions to be made”.

I believe that we need MHKs who prioritise good, caring constituency work but, in the Island’s current situation, we need MHKs who can offer much more than that. I know that I have a great deal to learn but I also know that I have a good understanding of both local and national issues, and I know that no-one will work harder to represent the people of Middle. I invite you to support me with one of your two votes.
