Premier warns MLAs to serve

| 28/04/2014

(CNS): The country’s leader urged his Bodden Town team to make sure they serve the needs of their constituents, otherwise they would not be returned to office. Premier Alden McLaughlin said thatwithout the Bodden Town members the PPM was unlikely to get a second term and that he knew very well how easily the voters would turn against their representatives if they do not believe they are working hard for their interests. Speaking at the opening of the new Progressives’ constituency office in the district, the PPM leader urged the people in Bodden Town to use it and if they didn’t find any of the four MLAs there he wanted the people to let him know.

“Representatives come and go and when they do not measure up the people remove them,” the premier said. “You are entitled to access your representatives and I know that if they do not serve you well, you won’t put them back and we won’t get the next government.”

Pointing to the importance of constituency offices, hesaid that the PPM headquarters and George Town MLAs office was always a very busy place and unless he was not on the island he did everything he could to be at his MLA surgery on Thursday afternoons to meet constituents and deal with their issues.

McLaughlin said it was one thing for members to perform well when they were in the Legislative Assembly but the voters need to see their MLAs and the members need to address constituency issues and serve them properly.

McLaughlin said that eleven months into office things were going well with his government, of which many, although exceptionally well qualified, were novice politicians. Like any other job, he said, these newcomers to the political arena had to learn how to do the job, and although there had been some bumps along the way, he was still very happy with how things had gone.

“We have never had a more professionally qualified and broadly experienced group in the Legislative Assembly before,” he said. “If we don’t do well it is no one else’s fault and we must make sure we don’t disappoint those in Bodden Town and across the island who helped us get into office … I am conscious of how easy it is not to do enough he said, I’ve felt it before,” he added, ahead of the official opening, as he asked for feedback from the constituents regarding their representatives.

    I thought they ran for a political post BECAUSE they wanted to serve… now a year into the tenure they must be reminded of WHY THEY RAN FOR POLITICS? My employer doesn't walk around reminding us employees that we started working for this reason or that; sad, sad mess our Gov'ment is in!

    We don't see our West Bay Representatives, either. I think they should all have monthly meetings in the town centers to keep everyone informed. On the other hand for those of you who cannot get out to those meetimngs, should  try listening to the LA   repeat broadcast on 89.9fm at 7:00pm to know exactly what their government reprensentatives are doing.

      I am glad that this Government sees it fit to clean up the image of the Cayman Islands and no one can tell me that this PPM lead Government is not better than that last awful UDP Government. You don't hear any corruption problems. You know the Islands have since stablized and you don't hear any scandelous news about the PPM Government. All the negativity being posted here now  has to be those people that are no longer on the BoBo list of McKeeva's. These Islands are doing much, much better under the circumstances the UK have us under with the FFR.  The UDP Government was a run-a-way train that has and would had cost us much, much more if we had allowed them to contimue to lead us down the destructive path. Mr. Premier McLaughlin, please continue what you are doing and do not yield to the naysayers.

      It's obvious that the PPM is giving you a lot of swanky to drink. Until 90 percent of the unemployed become employed the spewed promises mean absolutey unequivocally nothing.

    PPM for Caymanian's jobs???!!! What a larf!! Try applying for any job, even the most menial, and see who gets the preference. The person who requires a WP! Because Government continues to depend greatly on WP revenues!!

    Until that fundamental flaw of our "system" is rectified, Caymanians will be the last considered for jobs. That is combined with the fact that Government is doing nothing to implement its own  apprenticeship programs or support those of the few private sector entities which have implemented same. Of course, it's the same old story with Government's approach to fixing our broken education system – nothing! So within a few months we'll expect their boasts and empty promises as hundreds of "graduates" pour out of schools and onto the streets!!

    When since George Town PPM meeting with their constituents???!!!! Was calling for 5 mths straight couldn't get a meeting with none of the GT PPM members. Spoke with Lucille very briefly and she didn't have the courtesy to give me her full attention for 30 seconds. I just simply gave up after all the run around and begging for a meeting. Called Ezzard, got a response and the matter resolved. Alden just stop lying. My grandparents and parents failed to see through you and your kind. Trust me this generation will not. All the fish frys, turtle stews and whatever other foolishness you guys come up with to try to pull the wool over people eyes and not deal with the issues will not help you after all the older Caymanians voting for you die out.

        Can anyone tell me what the government intends to do about the astronomical health insurance increases that are now being levied by some of the leading insurance companies? They need to hold an emergency meeting to deal with this issue because if they do not it is clear that serious social problems and a bigger burden on the HSA is looming. How many families can afford over $2,000 for health insurance? Every year these huge increases are taking place, hundreds of dollars of increases per month, and no one is standing up! There is a very sad story and plea for help circulating on Facebook right now, where a well known family has been denied the coverage it needs by one of the largest local insurance companies for an ill child who requires emergency surgery! This family has been reduced to friends and family begging for help to try to raise the needed funds. People this is not right and the government needs to step up and deal with these insurance companies. I am sorry to sound so frustrated but that I am!

    On 20 January 1961 at the Inaugural address of President John F. Kennedy he made these words famous " ask not what your country can do for you – ask what  you can do for your country."

     The elected represents of these islands need to forget about the political division and do all within their powers to do what is right and just for all Cayman because at the end of the day we are not UDP, PPM, C4C, Independents or whatever we are Caymanians and united we must stand.  I will paraphase parts of this speech that should apply to our leaders today.
    Let us begin anew – remembering on both sides that civility in not a sign of weakness, and sincerity is always subjecto to proof.  Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate.
    Let both sides explore what problems unite us instead of belabouring those problems which divide us.
    Let both sides, for the first time, formulate serious and precise proposals for the inspection and control of crime and lawbreakers within our country under control.
    Let both sides seek to invoke the wonders of our country instead of the destruction of the way of life for many of our people.  Together let us explore ways to encourage our young to continue to develop and guide this country in ways that benefit all Caymanians.
    Let both sides unite to heed in all corners of these Islands the command of Isaiah – "to undo the heavy burdens – . and to let the oppressed go free."
    And if a beachhead of cooperation may push back the jungle of suspicion, let both sides join in creating a new endeavour, not a new balance of power, but a new country of law, where the strong are just and the weak secure and the peace preserved.

      PMilburn  I have to respond on this one.  I believe Alden is correct in telling the Bodden Town MLAs to serve their District.  After all it was Bodden Townners who voted them in.

      I do not see any reaso why they should  do any house keeping  in East End, GT or WB disricts, because when the time comes these districs will not be the ones votinng for them.

      Alden is quite right  Take care your own house before you take care someone  else house.

       my suggestion would be to help people get work who are able to work, and also make sure the elderly getsa raise  THOSE POOR PEOPLE CANNOT LIVE OF WHAT THEY ARE GETTING  Alden you need to pay attention to the needs of the seniors, they are dying slowly living off the few pittance they are geting.  BoddenTown MLAs  look into this.

    Mr Alden Mclaughlin April19,2013 Little red book of promises Made promises Broken

    Speaking during the official launch of the Progressives campaign at Grand Harbour on Wednesday night, Mr Mclaughlin noted that the Progressives government would address youth employment that currently stands at27 per cent.

    “As a candidate in this election, and the youngest on the team, I have taken the responsibility of being the voice of the youth. The Cayman Islands currently has an unemployment rate of 27 per cent for those under the age of 30. The youth are our future, but what future do we have if they can’t find work, if they can’t be educated properly, if they can’t be trained and if they are not given a chance? With a Progressive government that will change,” he said.

    “As the voice of the younger generation, I’m here to say, we don’t see people as rich or poor, black or white, old Caymanian or new Caymanian. What we care about is a fair opportunity for all, a fair chance to live, grow, prosper, and to build our country,” Mr Mclaughlin said.

    He stated that in the past four years of UDP rule, McKeeva Bush and his supporters had used a divide-and-rule approach to govern the country.

    The past four years have divided us as citizens and we must mend that broken bond. The problems we face as a nation can only be fixed with all hands on deck. I’m proud to say, a Progressive government will be that glue needed to bring us together again and steer us towards a better Cayman.

    “I first want to let you know that I understand why you are here tonight. You’re here because you’re disappointed; you are here because you want a better future for yourself and your family. There is good news, ladies and gentlemen. That is exactly why we, the Progressives are here tonight,” Mr Mclaughlin said, as he rallied the large crowd.

    “I know that you are fed up with politicians who run and hide in their offices as soon as they are elected, who never answer your calls, your emails, and your texts. You don’t want politicians; you want representatives. You want to see them and know that they will be there for you when you need them. You want representatives who will make moral and ethical decisions with dignity, transparency and honesty and I’m pleased to tell you that such will be the Progressives’ government,” Mr Mclaughlin promised.

    I proposed amendments to the Elections Law in our party caucus from as far back as 2007 to change our system of voting to this fairer system. The issue was also on the table during the constitutional negotiations, but was negotiated out of the original draft constitution because the UDP objected to it and the PPM did not fight for it. It was then substituted for a constitutional provision, which basically preserved the status quo. So we had many opportunities to implement this during the PPM’s term in government but it never happened,the Progressives party manifesto released prior to the May 2013 election reads, in part: We shall continue to uphold the highest standards of good governance by:… Amending the Elections Law to establish single member constituencies in good time for the 2017 elections, thereby giving effect to the desires of a majority of Caymanians who participated in the One Man, One Vote referendum.

    2013/2014 Budget Address

    The Plan favors an initial aggressive reduction in public sector operating expenditure, significant increases to Government’s cash reserves, no new long-term borrowings, continued repayment of existing loans and zero inflationary revenue measures.We have no plans to introduce any measures that would further burden the cost of living; as a matter of fact we are looking for ways to give our people, residents, visitors and businesses some relief whenit comes to their pocketbooks.I have to be honest with you. The lack of jobs for Caymanians was not created by this Government. Like many other issues facing this country, we inherited this problem.We are also working with the private sector, including Health City and Cayman Enterprise City, both of which have made commitments to hire Caymanians. Employment opportunities for Caymanian artisans and construction workers will improve with the start of construction on DART’s new hotel property on the West Bay Road and a new hotel in East End being proposed to service Health City. A proposed new golf course development in Frank Sound will also provide opportunities for employment.

    PPM manifesto

    A New Progressives Wil:

    Roll back the most damaging tax increases ASAP.

    Welcome and encourage openness in all parts of government.

    Work through education to change
    Caymanian perceptions of “good
    jobs”, particularly in relation to jobs in
    the hospitality industry.
    Encourage employers to recruit more
    Caymanians into tourism and
    hospitality jobs.
    Provide training for new and existing
    Seek the buy-in of stakeholders in the
    hospitality industry for an apprentice-ship scheme.
    Implement a minimum wage as an

    early priority

    We need to get the littering along the Newlands bypass and along Hirst Road under control. While the MLAs seem to be aware of this and are probably equally frustrated, it appears that DOEH and NRA are refusing to work together to coordinate grass cutting and litter pick up, so what already looks disgusting gets even worse once the grass cutter shreds the litter into a thousand pieces.

    Whilst nobody should have to pick up litter in the first instance (cause their shouldn't be any!), unfortunately we have plenty nasty people residing on this Island who just lover to toss their trash left, right and center! We need to do something to get control over this escalating issue! Either enforce the law or have regular pick-ups (and I mean regular, not once in a while).

    I cringe every time when I see a tourist in a rental car looking lost and confused and wonder what goes on in their heads when they drive along the garbage lined roads, starting from the airport heading East! But hey, we are a top notch destination and want to charge accordingly, right? Wonder how much longer this will be possible………..

    PPM little red book of Promise made Promise broken

     Moses Kirkconnell May 12,2014

    He promised that "there will be a new timeshare resort in Cayman Brac and residents should expect more of their people to be employed.You have the infrastructure you need you have roads; now you will have the flights if you elect Moses K as your MLA.I want to tell the elderly that there is hope again. I want to tell the women that i will not forget you after Mother’s Day. I want to tell the women, especially those who father their children, that i will be the hope for them.For example, there was mention of reducing fuel used by Brac Power & Light Company. Fuel that is imported into Cayman Brac costs 12.5 cents per gallon for the power company, but Little Cayman is 75 cents per gallon for gasoline for the power company there. Diesel in Cayman Brac is 60 cents per gallon and Little Cayman is 85 cents per gallon for the power companies, bearing in mind that all the fuel comes to the Brac then to Little Cayman from the storage facilities in the Brac.More things to come These include a golf course on the Bluff, a hotel on Spot Bay Bluff, a trade school of the bluff, weekly cruise ship visits and cruise berthing facility,”I believe that the establishment of a medical school on the Brac would help to serve as a positive catalyst to the Brac’s economy and also aid in the social and educational development on the Brac. It would also enhance medical tourism for us and it would create an excellent source of additional qualified medical persons who could work at Dr Shetty’s hospital and any other hospital for that matter. Our local students could be given scholarships to attend the school as well. Even Cayman Airways would benefit from the air travel with students, teachers and their families. The Faith Hospital could also partner with this medical school and students could assist there, which would mean that our hospital could get more modern equipment and increased services."I fully support getting a medical school on the Brac.”he told the enthusiastic crowd.

      I think the Premier should really censor his speech before he goes ahead and make them. I know that any time I need to find Mr. Suckoo and Mr. Eden I can find them at the PPM House., orthey will answer their phones Ossie is also there sometimes, and I can excuse him because he has such a huge job with the hospital and the other things.  Mr. Panton is the only one missing in action as far as I can tell. He won't even return a phone call.  I guess we are not big shot enough for him to deal with- but we will deal with him in 2017.

        When 2017 does come around they (PPM) will have had there way with us and we will be finished. U.K might even step in at that point. Country is being run by wild horny dogs who have their own ulterior motives at play.

        Less talk please from ALL, more action please from ALL!
