Independent for East EndContact:
We are facing an election following four years in which our country has taken a turn for the worse, with an unprecedented departure from good governance. Corruption and perceptions thereof have been a constant subtext over these past four years, and in many instances, the wishes of the majority of our people have been sacrificed because of stubborn and out-of-touch political leadership.
Our country cannot face another four years with more of the same.
In this election, the people of the Cayman Islands must send a message that the rule of law is of paramount importance to our democracy and we do not tolerate malfeasance by any politician or leader.
We need proven leadership at this critical time — leadership with a track record of honest, reliable representation. As a proud representative for East End and an independent candidate, I am prepared to work with others in the Legislative Assembly on behalf of the people. However, I am only prepared to support those who are committed to govern with honesty and integrity as the cornerstone of their principles.
My goal is to focus on priority areas for the advancement of East End and our country.
