Premier Paula Cox reiterated her willingness to engage OBA Leader Craig Cannonier in a debate, while PLP candidate Renee Ming has also challenged her opponent Nandi Davis to a debate.
“I’m ready, willing and able to discuss the pertinent issues of the day with Mr. Cannonier,” noted Premier Paula Cox. “Our party has stood strong for Bermudians during the worst global economic crisis since the Great Depression.
“We passed the landmark FutureCare initiative that helps our seniors with affordable doctor’s visits and prescription drugs after a lifetime of hard work. We passed DayCare to help our working families. And, we are the ones who passed the EEZ which provides Bermudian owned businesses in the areas that need it most support.
“I’m looking forward to talking about our Ten Point Plan for Growth that includes the introduction of Job Corps Bermuda, the One Stop Career Center and the revitalisation of the Hamilton Waterfront. I’m looking forward to discussing the issues of the day in front of the entire country,” the Premier concluded.
In addition, PLP candidate for Constituency #2 Renee Ming noted, “I saw a video of last week’s OBA press conference and it raised concerns with me. St. George’s needs an effective advocate for our community that is from our community and understands our unique culture, heritage and challenges.
“I have a wealth of experience working in the community. I grew up here. And, I know that our people deserve the best possible representation. That’s why today I’m challenging Nandi Davis to sit down and debate.
“As for the venue, we have approached Gary Moreno and he would be willing to host such an event. I do hope that we can schedule this debate in short order. I look forward to discussing the issues with Ms. Davis. Former UBP leader, Kim Swan is welcome to participate as well.”
