Of her election campaign, Susan said: -
“I chose to run for commissioner so that the electorate can vote to include a 'green' voice in the way Castletown is run.
Many people grumble about decisions. Across the Island, wild space and natural heritage has been sacrificed to greed.
If ecology-minded Islanders can unite, gather world-wide support and reprieve the St Marks elms, it shows what can be achieved.
As a Green Party commissioner, I can garner knowledge and experience from within the party to inform wise decisions for Castletown, helping ensure these contribute towards a healthy, kind and more sustainable environment for people, flora and fauna.”
