Kristina Moore is a Jersey politician and former journalist who worked for Channel Television, and ITV Central.[2]

Journalism[edit]

Before her election to the States of Jersey as a deputy for Saint Peter in 2011, she spent over ten years working as a broadcast journalist based in the Channel Islands and the UK and presented Channel Television's nightly regional news programme, Channel Report.

Before joining Channel Television as a reporter, Moore worked in news departments for independent local radio stations in the South Coast of England, having completed a postgraduate diploma in broadcast journalism at university. For a few years, she worked for ITV Central in Nottingham as a reporter and newsreader for Central News East.

However by 2004, she returned to Channel Television, replacing Jenny Kirk as a main anchor of Channel Report and taking up a role as political correspondent. She left the programme in 2009 to concentrate on raising her young family.

Political career[edit]

Moore stood as an independent candidate for the deputy of St Peter in the 2011 elections for the States of Jersey. She was elected on 19 October 2011, defeating Wayne Le Marquand by 1,169 votes to 589.[3]

In her 2011 manifesto, she stated that she would resist any further increases in Jersey's Goods and Services Tax (GST), and would like to see the proposed reduction in the number of States Members carried out by 2014.[4] At this time in 2011, the GST rate was 5%, having been increased from 3% in June 2011.[5]

On 15 October 2014, Moore was re-elected as deputy, defeating Debbie Hardisty by 1,335 votes to 200.
