Douglas Corporation has performed in a sensible and prudent manner during the period where I have been a Councillor. Rates have remained static last year with a small increase this year and schemes for regeneration and building have been sensible. I am prudent by nature and spending by the Council has been sensible during my time as a Councillor. The funding of the bowl refurbishment did not make sense for Douglas ratepayers in time for the Commonwealth Youth Games but did for the Isle of Man. Douglas Corporation should be run sensibly like a business and I believe it has over the last 4 years.
