Crosstalk debate: Red Bay

Political hopeful Samuel “Sammy” Jackson said traffic, flooding and development are the main issues he hopes to address for the Red Bay constituents, should he be successful at the polls on 14 April.

Jackson made the comments on Wednesday 31 March, while speaking unopposed on Rooster 101’s Cayman Crosstalk. Jackson is the sole challenger to incumbent Premier Alden McLaughlin, who declined to participate in the district debate.

During the show, Jackson said he would not form a government with McKeeva Bush, nor would he work alongside the current Progressives-led administration. He said if the current government was to return to power he would rather sit on the side of the opposition where he would be able to “still hold the government accountable”.
