This week, I announced that I would be Liberal Vannin’s candidate for Douglas East in the election on 23 September.

I’ve seen it reported on EnergyFM, and Manx Radio and in the Isle of Man Courier.

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.
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.
