Douglas north requisition meeting

Topics range from Pensions to refugee crisis

A requisition meeting for election candidates standing in the constituency of Douglas North was held last night at Willaston Methodist Church.

The meeting was chaired by Geoff Karran and was well attended by members of the public, with roughly 80 people eager to hear what their potential MHK's had to say.

The candidates present were Karen Angela, David Ashford, John Houghton, Ralph Peake, and Lynn Sirdefield.

The evening progressed in a well mannered nature as candidates answered written questions on a wide variety of topics, ranging from public-sector pensions to the Syrian refugee crisis.

Those present at the meeting felt the right questions were asked and were glad to see a good attendance.
