Paul Clark

Position: Commissioner

Telephone:

 I am 69 years old & my wife Sue and I have been Isle of Man
and Kirk Michael residents since 2001.
From 2001 until my retirement in 2015 I worked for Strix Ltd.,
Ronaldsway & Lloyds Bank International, Douglas
as Project Manager for both organisations.
I originate from Manchester with a background in
engineering & manufacturing management having served
a formal engineering apprenticeship.
I have a successful business background in change &
improvement and that is where I see my skills,
certainly in the short term, to improve the interaction
between the local community and Michael Commissioners.

As a resident of Kirk Michael, I have a long-standing interest in the future well being of the village and its residents. I started, and hope to continue, the Young Commissioners in association with Michael school. I am a member of Michael Heritage committee and have served previously on the Commissioners Board. As Chair of the Board I want to support and encourage new members in their endeavours to serve the Community and promote the best of Kirk Michael and Michael Parish as a whole.

Position: Commissioner

Telephone:


I have lived in Kirk Michael with my family for 15 years now and
love it! We thrive from the joy of village life; the children's
freedom to play outside; the support of a close knit community
and the benefits of a small class sizes at school.

I have a passion for helping people, I love our village
and want to be able to help our community - so Michael
Commissioners seemed like the perfect place for me!

From all the advice I have received so far my favourite and
the one that I think I will refer back to when making any
decision is “Try to do some good and no harm”



 

Barry Patrick Murphy

Position: Commissioner

Telephone:

I am a husband, and a father. I moved to Kirk Michael in 2009
from Douglas. I am a licenced taxi operator.
I am currently fighting a campaign for fairer gas regulation and
lower prices. I have been openly opposed to the concept of
'dial a ride'.
I love the sense of heart and soul within this community.
My main objectives as a Commissioner is to try to ensure that
rate payers are getting the best value for money, ensure
services continue and to work alongside my fellow members
of the board to implement positive improvements wherever
possible.


 

Catriona Joy Livingstone

Position: Vice Chairperson

Telephone:

I grew up in Kirk Michael and after university moved to
California. I lived away for many years returning every year
with my daughter to visit family.
When I retired two years ago, I was able to move back
permanently.
I worked as a town planner, took a few years out when my
daughter was small and then retrained as a teacher.
When I moved back home, I started a small business
‘Manx Walks’ taking small groups on guided walks in the
countryside.  
I wanted to be a Commissioner because I love the
Isle of Man and especially Kirk Michael and I’m motivated
by wanting to contribute. I love being home again and
living in such a safe community. 
I represent the Commissioners on the Neighbourhood
Policing Team and will do my best to communicate
Michael residents’ concerns about policing matters.
I walk and swim a lot and see first-hand how effectively
(or otherwise) local authority is functioning– things like
refuse collection, public toilets, gully clearing,
street sweeping, litter, dog poo, and abandoned vehicles.
Living in a place with a healthy environment (land and sea)
is a privilege and it’s worth putting in time and effort
to keep it that way.
The Commissioners have limited powers, but we have a
strong team now and I think together we can make a
difference.
