Reading your article “Cayman needs new Residency
Category” by John May of Capital Realty Ltd.
What a breath of ‘fresh air’ and at last a sensible
‘cause and effect’ argument, how could anyone either Caymanian or Expat alike
find fault with such a sound suggestion, with no apparent down sides.
I know of Mr. May a very popular and successful visionary
of many years experience. I do hope he is listened to as I am exactly in that
situation he describes, having owned property and attempted to settle in the Cayman
now for a number of years, although I have made many friends and met some
wonderful people, sadly, after all this time I do not feel welcome as I am
always given a hard time by immigration, despite spending a considerable amount
of dollars here each year supporting local Industry and services, I compete
with no-one and indeed do not drive my car at peak times.
However, I am moving on because I feel I am wasting my
time as my future does not feel secure on Cayman, I doubt if you will miss me
or my contributions alone but I know others have left before me with many more
to follow, collectively we will be missed, so each individual is important.
Please to the powers that be, LISTEN TO MR. MAY and the
voices of experience like him. Please listen and then act, it is getting late.
