Two candidates who stood on a joint ticket to represent Alderney at the States of Guernsey enjoyed a resounding victory at this weekend’s poll.
Old friends Louis Jean and Graham McKinley joined forces in their election campaign saying they would present a united front in Guernsey to make sure the island's voice could be better heard.
Louis Jean is one of the Island’s two current serving Alderney Representatives, whilst Graham McKinley is a newly elected Guernsey States Member.
The pair say the issue at the top of their agenda is securing and improving the Island’s air links.

617 papers were issued and none of them were spoiled.
