DURING late summer two separate assemblies were held to elect a Procureur and Centenier.
Mr Arthur Morley was re-elected for a second term of office as Procureur. Mr Morley is a former Centenier and has a professional background in the finance industry.
Constable Steve Pallett said:
"Arthur's knowledge of the Parish as a serving officer combined with his extensive experience in financial matters is a huge asset to the Parish. I am very pleased to welcome him for a further term with the assurance that St. Brelade’s finances remain in very capable hands."
Centenier and Chef de Police Michel Bougeard also stood for re-election his previous term of office having expired. He too was elected unopposed/
"The role of Chef de Police requires skills that only years of service can provide, this being Mr Bougeard's fifth term as Centenier. I am delighted that not only has he been re-elected but will continue as Chef de Police with the full support of his Honorary Officer colleagues. Michel, along with other St. Brelade officers, was also awarded a long service medal by the Lieutenant Governor a very short time after his election." Said Constable Steve Pallett.
Both Mr Morley and Mr Bougeard were sworn in at the Royal Court on Friday 11th September.
