HAVING announced in January the intention to host online candidate meetings for the upcoming council elections, volunteer group IsleVote21 has now assembled a team for the project.

The group's target is to have all 39 meetings conducted next month and uploaded to YouTube on April 18.

This is to allow voters to view the meetings and give themselves a better understanding of which candidates best represent their values and aspirations for the Island.

Founder, Stephen Cockett, said: “We have received a great deal of positive feedback both from candidates and the public who have been busy submitting questions to be pitched in the upcoming meetings.”

Those wishing to submit questions or support the scheme to boost local democracy can do so online at IsleVote21.co.uk.
