Who Is Likely To Ask Me For Help?

There are no rules on who can or cannot approach you for help, and you’ll be surprised at the diversity of people who do. Before island-wide voting, there was a sense that Deputies had a particular duty to help people in their parish(es), but it was fuzzy even then – people would often contact Deputies from across the Island – and I imagine it’s even fuzzier now. You might find that people contact you because they’ve formed the impression that you are politically or personally sympathetic, or because you’re on a Committee that deals with the services or policies that are affecting them directly.
