This week, I announced that I would be Liberal Vannin’s candidate for Douglas East in the election on 23 September.
My favourite part was this from Manx Radio’s coverage:
In his spare time, he enjoys volunteering for community groups like the Isle of Man Foodbank and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.
He also plays a huge amount of sport, especially hockey, netball and squash and dreams of one day owning an alpaca sanctuary.
Michael says: “Our campaign for Douglas East is about bouncing back better from the pandemic to build and rebuild our community organisations, to build our island as a shining beacon when much of the world faces stormy seas.Manx Radio – Michael Josem
Our campaign is for all of us – if your family has lived on the Isle of Man for thousands of years and if you’re a new arrival. Our campaign is about bouncing back better with a renewed focus on fairness, freedom, and most of all, a focus on our community.“
