Deputy Montfort Tadier (born 28 November 1979) is a Jersey politician, and a member of the States of Jersey.
Montfort Tadier was born in the parish of St Helier in Jersey.
He was brought up in St Brelade and educated in the island at La Moye Primary School, Les Quennevais and Hautlieu Secondary Schools, before gaining a BA(Hons) in Modern Languages from the University of Sheffield.
He was first elected in November 2008 as Deputy for the district of St Brelade No. 2, which consists of the vingtaines of La Moye and Les Quennevais. He gained one of the two seats in the district, coming second with 758 votes from a field of 8 candidates. He was re-elected in 2011 with a majority of 1, 428 votes.
Though the Jersey government does not operate a formal system of party politics (the vast majority of members having been elected as independents), he identifies himself with green, social-democratic and socialist politics.
He is a founding member of the political pressure group Time4Change, which was formed in the response to the revelations, in early 2008, that systemic child abuse had occurred in a local care home during the 1960s-1980s. The group campaigns on various issues to do with constitutional reform, tax reform, social and environmental issues.
In December 2010 Deputy Montfort Tadier announced the possible formation of a new political party called Reform Jersey, However it was not until July 2014 that Reform Jersey was registered in the Royal Court of Jersey.
Since 2009 he has been running his own blog site.
He has served on the Education and Home Affairs Scrutiny Panel between 2008 - 2013 and is currently the Vice-Chairman of the Privileges and Procedures Committee.
