Third candidate to contest Glenfaba

A third candidate has declared he'll stand for election in the Glenfaba constituency.

He's Matthew Wadsworth, a bank commercial analyst who lives in St John's.

Mr Wadsworth says he's decided to put his career with a blue chip company 'on hold' so he can help 'ensure the prosperity' of the nation.

Married with one son, Mr Wadsworth held a senior managerial post at British Gas before his move to the Island.

He says concerns about the Island's future viability and maintaining quality of life for his family and the wider community have driven him to seek election to the Keys.

Sustaining education and health provision are listed as priorities.

So far, sitting member David Anderson and challenger Geoffrey Boot have declared they'll fight for the one seat in Glenfaba.
