OBA & PLP On Candidates Interest Declarations

December 14, 2012

PLP Chairman Anthony Santucci today challenged the OBA for what he said was a lack of transparency in not publishing a declaration of its candidates’ interests in government contracts as required by law, while the OBA said they were not surprised the PLP were “desperate to cast the OBA in the worst possible light before polling day.”

Mr. Santucci said: “We are gravely concerned that the OBA has not acted as the law requires and published its members’interests in a local newspaper.

“They have spoken often about transparency and openness yet have failed to show this in a fundamental requirement before the election. More importantly, any candidate who has not declared an interest in any government contract is automatically disqualified as a candidate.”

The PLP chairman went on to point out that the PLP ran its ad declaring its members’ interests on December 5, and has done so in previous elections. He said in 2007, the UBP declared interests for 16 of their candidates, many of whom are still candidates for the OBA.

Mr Santucci said the PLP is “aware of at least one OBA candidate who, under this term of the Bermuda Constitution, should now be disqualified as a candidate.”

The PLP chairman said that in 2007 Bob Richards [then a UBP candidate] declared his interest in Government contracts. Mr Santucci said:  ”In his 2007 declaration, Mr. Richards noted that he was, ‘Director and Qualified Shareholder of BITS Ltd.’

“Mr. Richards is still listed as President and is a shareholder of Bermuda Information Technology Services Limited in his Declaration of Interest that can be found online at parliament.bm.

“Based on this evidence it is puzzling that Mr. Richards and the OBA feel that this information should not be published as the law of Bermuda requires, especially given that we understand that this company still has contracts with the Bermuda Government.

“In that same UBP declaration in 2007, Mr. Jeff Sousa declared his interest as ‘President and Qualifying shareholder in Sousa’s Landscape Management Company Limited’. We also understand that Mr. Sousa’s company still has a contract with the Government of Bermuda.”

Mr. Santucci added: “Has something changed since 2007 and if not, what does Mr. Richards, Mr. Sousa and the OBA have to hide? The constitution of Bermuda is clear on the legal obligations for transparency of Parliamentary candidates…”

“We call on the OBA to come out of the shadows and stop hiding,” said Mr Santucci. “Tell the people of Bermuda when Mr. Richards’ interest in the multi-million dollar government contract ended. Bermudians have a right to know.”

OBA Chairman said Thad Hollis replied, saying: “We’re not surprised that Mr. Santucci and the PLP are desperate to cast the One Bermuda Alliance in the worst possible light before polling day, in this instance over whether candidates declared interests in Government contracts as required by law.

“Under the Legislature (Qualification and Disqualification) Act, One Bermuda Alliance candidates have confirmed to the Party that they have no interests to declare.

“More specifically, in light of continuing attacks by Mr. Santucci and his colleagues, Mr. E.T. (Bob) Richards has taken advice from senior legal counsel and his opinion is that Mr. Richards is clearly not disqualified and that the Parliamentary Registrar has no authority to declare him or any other candidate disqualified. Candidate Mr. Jeff Sousa has also taken legal advice and he has confirmed he has no interest to declare.

“The continuing PLP campaign of distortion, lies and spin is a desperate attempt to distract voters from the real issues facing Bermuda. It is telling these attacks came the same day that Anchor Investment Management’s Bermuda Economic Update warned of a potential Bermuda “debt crisis”.

“The One Bermuda Alliance will not be sidetracked from our mission to build a Bermuda based on social and economic equity for all, leaving no one behind, with good-paying jobs, safe neighbourhoods, great schools and making Bermuda affordable,” Mr Hollis concluded.

          At 18 OBA 18 PLP(unlikely to happen cause at least one independent will be elected) the PLP will be asked to form the Government regardless of the popular vote!

          For the Governor(constitution) the decision is about continuance of Government not who is most popular.

          Even at 16 PLP 18 OBA 2 independents the PLP will be the first to be asked to form the Government using the two independents. If they can't do this because they don't have the support of the independents then the OBA will be asked.

          The system of Democracy we have is highly flawed! Time to change the system!

              Dredd the PLP minister is up to his propaganda nonsense again. I think we can all see through the PLP lies..so sad, so sad. PLP is looking to make us all poor. We are poorer as a country day by day as the debt increases and the money for the interest leaves the island. country is being run like a third world dictatorship. Haiti is not too far away in our future if the PLP get in. . The PLP ministers are living it up on other peoples (your) money.

              Go look it up haiti grew their GDP by over 5% in 2011, Bermuda was -2.8%. They out performed us'

                I'd actually be flattered by your paranoia induced mistaken estimation of me as a PLP government official if I didn't know that I am conversing with an asininus. In the interest of satiating my personal penchant for exposing the underlying racist swineheadedness in the comments of your ilk, might I draw attention to the parallel you drew between Bermuda under Black governance and THE most impoverished black country in the western hemisphere? Your message is loud and clear. You have a severe illness of the conscience which compels you to highlight the worst possible examples of black leadership or predominantly black society. You could have chosen any eastern European impoverished nation but that would be too much of an agent to the cognitive dissonance you are badly in need of. I'd need to write a book to outline all the many racist nuances in your comment but suffice it to say that you lifted your skirt and we can see precisely which orifice you are "Blurt"ing out of.

            Why would "white people" vote for a party that outwardly expresses hatred towards them? That's like me chillin on a daily with a bunch of people that don't like me, express their dislike and I still chill. Don't make stupid comparisons. I've said before anything born of hate will eventually self-destruct, pure and righteous intentions will always prevail, Monday will tell me if I'm right.

            P.s. Why has your face changed? That's not the usual Judge Dredd face and there's only 2 explainations for it... Better question is why is it all the plp supporters faces change but yet people like Verbal Kint, Argosy, Swing Voter, Terry, Tommy Chong, Blurt, plus myself and more have all remained the same since I started commenting at the begining of this year?

            P.p.s. I know the reason, I'm just trying to see if others will put the pieces together. Sorry I'm a Virgo, I have a close attention to detail, I analyze everything, its my blessing and my curse.

            • Judge Dredd says:

              I understand why you see a call for political, educational, economical, and cultural equality as "hatred" towards whites. You are one of those most unfortunate ones who have identified white superiority with being white. Hence, you confuse righteous indignation toward economic and political hegemony based on race as "hatred" toward a race. Are you really so dishonourable as to deny the political and economic hegemony of the white electorate which they've enjoyed and do not wish to be enjoyed by anyone else? The PLP doesn't speak hatred, its simply the fact that you hate what they speak, because it threatens what you have come to identify as your identity. Let go of that false identity and you will have opened your heart to your true identity, which is human just like the rest of us. Stop biting your finger tips in rage at black leadership and show that you are not racist and can support black leaders as well as white. This would be a miracle because whites NEVER EVER............EVER supported the PLP so don't twist it to make out seem like your decision is based on their governance. You didn't vote for them in or before 1998 and you never will and we all know why. They have done beautiful things for this country and quite frankly YOUR racist smear campaign which began on the heels of the 1998 election leaves a disgusting taste in everyone's mouth.
              As for your paranoid "face changing" comment, I can only charitably offer to you that I believe your face will change if you use a different computer or different location, which happens when you can't sit on your @$$ at home all day like some Ppl and actually use different internet access points. Other than that maybe Bernews can explain. But I think you more rightly aught to direct your "face changing" suspicions to the UBP oops err I mean ABC doh my bad I mean OBA their "black surrogate" face chicanery. It should be OBC the only Bermudian chameleon

                @ Judge Dredd: You talk about educational equity. Did you see that we have a 72% FAIL rate with GCSEs? That included 92% FAIL at Maths!! The PLP complained about public education when they were elected in 1998. 14 years later and $250 million spent, by THEIR reckoning, and we are worse off than ever! 14 years is a whole generation of students, from 4 to 18, that have been graduated without being able to read, write and figure well enough to compete in an international exam. What kind of economic equity can this year's graduates expect?

                No-one in the PLP is talking about how we will pay down this massive debt. These children wont be able to, nor the young man I met the other night who felt insulted, embarrassed, and that the bank was taking advantage of his youth when they exchanged his US $1000 for 600 British Pounds. He couldn't grasp the concept of exchange rates

                Someone has suggested that the real "secret" is that the last few years have been planned, that we are meant to default, those who can are expected to leave, and when every thing has collapsed, some certain folks will ride on in and buy up everything at rock-bottom prices. Either that or we have been sold out to the Arabs who will claim our little Paradise Island for yet another playground when we default, as they are expecting us to do.

            Yo dun, I have a simple question completely irrelevant to what you just said but why is it that the plp supporters/posters ALL don't seem to KNOW the difference between NO and KNOW? IMO its either the same idiot(you) under different names, or there's more than a handful of plp supporters that failed BASIC English. Seriously! When you understand the difference I'll start on to, too and two...welcome back to primary school...do you understand the word primary? Do you understand when its use along with the word school, to make up primary school? I don't usually like to be a grammar nazi but wtf was that?

              First of all Mr. wise asininus the proper term for what you are referring to is orthography NOT grammar since you want to be so prim proper and snobtommy. Grammar is concerned with the structural composition of words, phrases and paragraphs, NOT the spelling of words. Since you're still relying on your "BASIC" primary school education book which lumps them all together under "grammar" you obviously don't know that. Now only because you deserve a light spanking for resorting to the disgraceful art of ad-hominem, I'll point out some of your own monumental literary £u©kup$ in your comment. #1 It's useD along NOT "when its use along with". Did you learn that in primary school? #2 Maybe I'm not getting your lame joke but it's laNguage not "lamguage". #3 learn the difference between it's and its, one is a possessive pronoun and the former means "it is". Now although you had many other screw ups class is dismissed for today. Hurry up to your next class on how to rid yourself of racist tendencies to perceive yourself more intelligent than blacks. Unlike you, I don't focus on every comma and grammatical mistake of posters including myself. Just wanted to burst your moronic bubble. I once heard a wise man say "Sumwon hoo does nut 'no' of at leest three waze two spell a wurd, isn't really that intelligent at all"

      • PLP is the new UBP says:

        Its a shame that black Bermudians continue to base their arguments on a document.. I'm a black Bermudian and I know for a fact that the PLP's hands are far from clean.. How do I know this? Because of their very own statements, such as: "we had to deceive you" and "I'm just a cog in the wheel", and "it's unethical but not illegal"... Those statements, along with many others, coupled with the PLP's record is the reason they won't be getting my vote on Monday. I'm 30 years old which means I've spent my entire adulthood under a PLP govt, and they went from being okay, to being straight up garbage! When ppl ask them how they plan to get the economy back on track, they say it's on their platform, but for someone like me that doesn't have interest in reading their bs platform, why can't u just provide an answer? My opinion is that ppl nowadays vote for someone just because their families voted for them and it's in their legacy, which is understandable to a degree, but on Monday I'll be voting for the ppl that are best prepared to help me, along with the rest of Bermuda get back where it's traditionally been viewed, so with that said, OBA all day!!

        Never any mention of the horrible state of Bermuda from any PLP supporter. Its one thing not to vote for another party, but to support your party as if they have not robbed us blind is living in denial. Regardless if you continue to vote for PLP, you should be at least holding them accountable for the disastrous financial situation we are in. And don't blame the recession because it is only part of the reason we are in debt, most of the debt is from poor financial and fiscal management and gross misspending. That needs to be addressed to your party and you deserve better from them for all the support you have given them over the years. Demand better from them or Bermuda will sink further into debt and your children/grandchildren will be paying dearly in the future.

They would NOT vote for them before they came into power and they have carried that tradition. You speak as if there was some shift of some sort, as if whites used to vote for PLP and then stopped supporting. NO! They have NEVER EVER.........EVER supported anyone except their own. So trying to draw empty similarities between the solid white voting block and democrats is just rib achingly laughable. Its exactly the opposite. We, like democrats know that your party does not like or care about our affairs and that all your surrogate Herman Caines and Cannoniers does not change that fact. Calling us racists is just yet another stab in the heart from one of your blunt and played-out tools of white hegemony. I refuse to allow you to label racists anyone who points out the continuing tradition of racism in this country. Change your attitude and you will have disarmed people like me. Support black leadership and stop trying to smear and destroy symbols of black leadership. Get help for your god complex.

            @ Judge Dredd: The PLP would never have become the government if white peopl eididn't vote for them. Since some black people voted UBP, and some blacks didn't vote at all, it sis clear that some percentage of whites DID vote for the PLP more than once.

            The problem I am having is that since you keep making this about race, then I have to look at the last few years and feel monumentally betrayed by my own people. If it wasn't about race, I could just see certain PLP parliamentarians as just not very knowledgeable people. There are some in every race, so it doesn't have to be only because they are black Instead, I have to now look at the predictions made about electing a Black government and find I cannot refute them. That is so painful, embarrassing and shameful for me, as a black woman.

        - a rising star caught carrying drugs for others and proudly displaying hand signs
        - a convicted armed bank robber
        - a "pastor" who hired himself as a "consultant" for $160,000 in an arrangement that even his own party leader called unethical and demanded he resign and repay the money. He did neither.
        - a speaking of the party leader; she reigned as finance minister of the biggest debacles in Bermuda's history but claimed she was unable to stop it because she was just a cog in the wheel.

    Sounds like the OBA are all in compliance with the rules. What about the PLP.?

    Where are these Hotels???????? None, all promises, but none delivered. Then Furbert starts banging on about the cost of building a hotel in Bermuda...so there you have it, none will be built, or they will if Bermudians don't build it....I just wonder who will be the head benefiters of companies that bring in that cheap labour? Hmmmmmmm i wonder!

    P Minors could be in violation of the Human Rights Act for discriminating against a persons because of their place of origins upon the awarding of a contract. It only takes the business to make a formal complaint and I think should could be in sticky water...I'm no expert. Whilst her spirit is to be commended, you have to go by the rules you make. And 8 bermudians now suffer, and 80,000 more disappears from our monies, as the new contract. Cost that much more????

    DeSilva is in violation by by not disclosing salaries in the annual report to do with the Hospital. Remember his arrogance. Disgusting.

    Cox has yet to deliver the Mid Year financials. How many prior year financials have had to be qualified...not a good thing, it means not squeeky clean. Where is the Accountant general, and why was she put on Administative leave before the election?

    Cox has yet to stop ministers getting involved for personal gain, financial or otherwise with contracts being awarded. Think of LED, pharamaceuticals distribution, a Famous company, and JUST who is CAhow Limited?. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm

    Who are the Benefiters of the Trust money on the Dame LB Evans Building?

    Where is the missing 600million

    Who was Makai D. Protecting, who's cigarettle case was it he held and took the fall for......has he been charged yet?

    Why did Berkley cost over $60million more than it was supposed to. Perhaps more .

    Why did theWharf cost more than was budgeted. why is it not fit for its purpose, just 2 years into being built. Why did the PLP ignore hamilton and St Georges for tourism and push all the income into Wedco... I rememer looking at a report a few years ago.. a PLP name was a director of Wedco.

    Why did Bean pay himself to effectively work for himself in an already paid government quango and not pay it back, when asked, why is is still running in the PLP, when he didn't listen to the Leader. Why did Cox go quiet on this.....there is more to this one...come on PATI, I want to know.

    Why did Burgess gave a lease to Bean for White's island for one day shy of 21 years?

    Why did another Bean just in principle overule all the experts positions for a property to be built which, noone knows who it is for or what it will be. With 3 purposes on the application.

    Why did Weeks and Burgess have to be separated ...what is the truth behind that scuffle.

    Why is Roban running....he had to resign after pushing through friends and family planning deals didn't he?

    Why haven't we recovered the Faith Based money.

    Where the hell is PATI Cox...did you just lie about that to keep us Bermudians quiet ? Show me the transparency in government?

    Why does Smith pretend that the school results were great, when is is a disater....an embarresment...14 years and it's like day 1.

    Why did PLP claim they were tackling gang crime afer Perinchief admitted it took them by surprise and that he couldn't get traction, so pushed it off to Families, youth and sports. So what has CARTEL done that earned them the super lease FREE that allows them to charge other people for use of the island!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This list goes on and on and on.....

    Oh, and What business does Cox's husband do...we hear Business man all the time, what business, what is it called and how many govt contracts has it had? It may be none, he is a very nice person to speak on occassions I've spoken tohim, but what is his directly benefits Cox, surely she needs to disclose any govt contracts his business has. Maybe he has none.

    Most important of ALL is WHY hasN't the PLP run on their record....They have had 14 years to make Bermuda magnificent, but they failed, they made us poorer, told us what we should buy..like Grand Atlantic Condos on South Shore and completely ignored us time and time again. They know they don't stand a chance in heaven or hell if they run on that. So get ready for more divisive, nastiness Bermuda.

  22. GOD 1st says:

    The PLP, from inception until today, are the party of the people and they believe in social justice and equality for all.

    2. The PLP made our democracy stronger through one man, one vote, single seat constituencies and the democratisation of Hamilton and St. George's.

    3. The PLP were the reason that the voting age was reduced to 18 years of age.

    4. My grandmother is able to obtain affordable health care under the PLP thanks to FutureCare.

    5. We have watched Premier Cox navigate Bermuda through the worst global financial crisis in our lives and stand strong for ALL Bermudians.

    6. I look at the PLP Team and I see a group of caring, hard-working people who are connected to the community. I see an OBA full of rookies and old UBP members.

    7. The PLP invests in the people. It puts people progress above money. I appreciate that.

    8. My friend got a DayCare allowance thanks to the PLP and can now pursue educational opportunities!

    9. My cousin opened a business in the EEZ thanks to the PLP’s grants. He now employs 2 Bermudians!

    10. The PLP trained hundreds of people - upgrading their skills and giving them access to jobs through the Waiter/Server programme, DryWall programme, Landscaping Programme, Accounting Programme and Nail Tech programme

    11. My friend lives in a beautiful affordable unit at Loughlands and I have friends at Harbour View and Perimeter Lane.

    12. The PLP introduced rent geared to income housing which makes living in Bemuda that much more affordable.

    13. Schoolkids are benefiting from higher standards thanks to the Cambridge Curriculum. People talk down our schools, but I know a lot of kids that are succeeding.

    14. Fast ferries and expanded bus routes have made it much easier to get around the island.

    15. I just don't trust an OBA that still employs a consultant who developed a "secret plan" designed to put the old UBP guard in power.

    16. I was offended that the OBA still employs a consultant who called for the use of "black surrogates" and said that the way to get back power was to rebrand and rename.

    17. People I know don't trust the OBA's Cuts & Pain Commission. We don't know what it's all about. We don't know who will be on it and what will be on the chopping block. What we do know is that they promise debt reduction and $500 million in new spending. That means deep and radical cuts WILL have to be made!

    18. I support the PLP because they're going to turn Bermuda College into a university.

    19. I'm excited that the PLP is going to launch Job Corps Bermuda and the One Stop Career Centre to help get Bermudians back to work.

    20. The OBA will only look after their friends in business and open the immigration floodgates by suspending term limits!

    21. I'm looking forward to the PLP rolling out the red carpet for returning college graduates, connecting them with jobs and opportunities.

    22. I'm excited about the PLP's plans to start the New Business Initiative, which will give business plan help and loans to our young entrepreneurs.

    23. I'm supporting the PLP because they have a true heart for the people and they understand our struggles.

    24. We must not let down our parents and grandparents who struggled to get us to this place. We must not turn the clock back and put the old UBP back in charge.

    25. I am voting PLP because they are standing strong for Bermudians like me!

    Poor Lois, Freddie, Julian, Austin, David, Molly, and dare I say even father Eugene, must be 'rolling in their graves'... Surely this is not the 'proud party legacy' they worked so long and hard for and died for... They fought the good fight of high morals, integrity and justice, but now it all seems lost and abandoned, (10 years later) how far have we strayed?!
    They would be thoroughly embarrassed and ashamed! Wayne, Randy, Dale, Jennifer, and Paula, what say you in good conscience?!
    Remember 'we had to deceive you', 'I'm just a cog in the wheel', 'mock it up', 'make it happen', overspend, overspend, overspend, 'it's unethical but not illegal', sorry but the
    negatives far outweigh the positives... and there's no such thing as 'free', somewhere, somehow we all pay... you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours... severe lack of accountability, justice and leadership... the silence is truly deafening... the children are watching and listening too, what examples are we setting ?! Double standards abound, shameful, shameful, we can do much better to ensure our collective futures!!!
    Please, Lord have mercy on our souls...... time to vote........

    So..... it took the UBP 40+ years to self destruct, fizzle and become extinct and not to be outdone, now it appears the PLP are in hot pursuit, mimicking a similar performance of scandals, hiccups and alienating themselves from the people, tourists and big business, on a much grander scale.

    Possibly, the two party system needs to be shelved in the annals of history with the dinosaurs.
    A golden opportunity exists for the OBA to amalgamate with the 'near to be extinct' PLP, as they did such a great job amalgamating and re-branding with the dormant UBP.

    'One party', of intelligent, gifted, enlightened men and women, young and seasoned, black and white, for the collective benefit of 'one island', in spite of our differences and opinions. A 'win-win' scenario, no more 'divide and conquer', after all, 'united we stand and divided we fall'.
    The new name could be One United Progressive National Liberal Alliance of Bermuda, or, One United Progressive Democratic Alliance of Bermuda, or, One United Progressive Bermudian Alliance.
    If we can get men on the moon, we can do this too.... it's so crazy and preposterous it just might work, seriously folks.... consider Bill Gates and his crazy idea, look where it took him!
    We do have the collective intelligence, talent and potential required to accomplish such an awesome feat!
    Time will tell...... time to vote.....

    The Ad in the Bermuda Sun on December 5 lists the names of 4 people: David Burt; Darius Tucker; Jonathan Smith and Zane DeSilva. In includes the name of their employer only. Section 30 subsection 6 requires the following information:

    Name
    Nature of Contract
    Interest in Contract.

    The PLP Declaration failed to include 2 of the 3 requirements, so they have not complied with the law.

    How about Rolfe Commissiong who is allegedly a shareholder in a company importing generic drugs from India. Are none of these purchased for sale to the Government?

    20 seats OBA
    14 seats PLP
    2 seats Ind

    PLP falls apart in 2014 ... Forced to rebrand and rethink their goals and mission
    PLP re emerge in 2016 as a refreshing rejuvenated and relevant organization.

    I would like to use this forum to ask a question regarding political text messages that i have received and continue to receive from one of the two main parties.

    Firstly i would like to know how did you get my number ?

    Secondly, do the wireless provider that have leaked this information realise that they are in violation of the data protection laws that are in place for this sort of mass mailing?

    Can either one of the parties answer this for me, because the way to get a vote is to meet and greet and talk to people not wirelessly.

    Reading these comments are terrible. You people are so horrible to each other. Gosh, gone are the days when people could disagree but still respect each other at the same time. I so wish they could come back.
