Opposition Leader David Burt’s Remarks:

It is my pleasure to stand before you this afternoon to present a group of capable and committed Progressive Labour Party candidates for July’s general election. The PLP is a big tent party and I feel that our slate of candidates reflects the same. They represent a wide variety of backgrounds, professions and interests. I have complete faith that the candidates we have chosen will put all Bermudians first and work together to ensure the ideals of the PLP and all of Bermuda are upheld.

For Constituency 7 – Hamilton South – I am delighted to present PLP deputy chairman, Anthony Richardson. Anthony has more than 26 years’ experience as a Chartered Accountant holding such senior positions as Accountant General of Bermuda, Chairman of the Bermuda Hospitals Board, Chief Executive Officer of the Bermuda Health Council and Chief Financial Officer of the Bermuda Land Development Company.

Anthony’s commitment to community service is most impressive. He currently serves as a Councillor for the Corporation of St. George’s and is the Chairman of the Board of Directors at his church. He has extensive experience on many Government Boards and his commitment to community service is further exemplified by his participation in the Bermuda Parents Teachers Students Association, the BFA Finance Committee and YouthNet.

He is a product of Bermuda’s public education system – East End Primary, Warwick Academy and Bermuda College. He holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from Acadia University and further advanced diplomas in insurance, finance and management. With his professional and community experience, I am convinced that Anthony will make an excellent representative for Smith’s West.

The PLP candidate for Constituency 8 Rose Ann Tucker will no doubt represent Smith’s South with dignity and respect. As a self-employed entrepreneur, Rose Ann understands the true meaning of hard work. A family immersed in politics fostered in Rose Ann a life-long interest and desire to become involved in the political process and to contribute to the betterment of all Bermudians.

Rose Ann has been involved at the branch and executive levels of the Progressive Labour Party for many years and is a former Assistant Secretary of the PLP. She is also a former 2nd Vice President of the Bermuda Public Service Union. Rose Ann also served on the steering committee for Habitat for Humanity. Her commitment to representing others and advocating for their needs knows no bounds.

Rose Ann attended the Berkeley Institute, the Bermuda College, George Meany Labor College and the Project Management Institute. She has been a Project Manager in HSBC’s Corporate Real Estate Department and with her skills and her determination, I am proud to present her as the PLP Candidate for Constituency 8.

Last, but certainly not least, I am honoured to declare Wayne Caines as the candidate for Constituency 14 – Devonshire North West. Wayne is the former CEO of Digicel Bermuda and current CEO of SENIAC Consulting, a Telecommunications and Organizational Consulting Firm.

He has already served Bermuda admirably with a career of public service. He is a former Captain in the Bermuda Regiment and spent seven years as Crown Counsel at the Department of Public Prosecutions. Wayne also served as the Chief of Staff in the Office of the Premier and as a PLP Senator, Junior Minister of Tourism, Transport, Environment and Sport.

A natural leader, Wayne has been a keynote speaker at the International Institute for Peace Through Tourism Conference, the African Tourism Conference, and the Council of Europe. In 2012, he was the Commencement Speaker at the Oakwood University, his alma mater. Wayne is also a graduate of the University of Kent, School of Law and the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.

Wayne is a member of many civic organizations and sits on various boards. Impressively, he was the recipient of the ‘Community Leader Award’ from the Detroit-based non-profit organization Operation ReachBack.

With his military discipline and community activism, Wayne is an ideal candidate for the PLP in Constituency 14.

I’d like to thank all the candidates presented today and our supporters. I know that, together, when we put Bermudians first, we can create a society that works not just for one Bermuda, but for all of Bermuda.

Wayne Caines Remarks:

Good afternoon to the Party Leader, Mr. David Burt, fellow candidates, family, friends, members of the media.

Today I sit before you as the vision of Michael & Shurnett Caines, my loving parents, who instilled in me a love of Bermuda and a commitment to service.

I am the loving husband of Maxanne Caines and the proud father of Maxii Caines.

I can truly say my whole life I have been preparing to serve my community………the quote from Shirley Chisolm always rings poignantly in my ears “Service is the rent we pay for living on this earth”.

Today I am honoured and humbled to stand before you as the confirmed candidate for the Bermuda Progressive Labour Party in Constituency 14, Devonshire North West.

This is a responsibility that I do not take lightly, particularly during these challenging times in our Island.

Devonshire NorthWest holds a special place in my heart, given the fact that my Paternal Grandfather, Mr. Arnold Caines in the early 1920′s journeyed all the way from St Kitts as a carpenter with two bags, one with all of his belongings and the other with his hopes and dreams. Mr. Arnold Caines, a Carpenter, made Happy Valley his home, where he and his wife raised 7 Children.

I spent my child and teenage years, in this Constituency.

So truly, I am a son who is at home.

Yes, Devonshire North West, I am home.

I am happy and proud to represent the people of Constituency 14, Devonshire North West.

I have fond memories of remembering walking to and from the Prospect Primary School with my brothers and sister up and down Frog Lane, Friswell’s Hill, Happy Valley and Roberts Ave.

Prospect Primary a school remains my foundation. I remember and hold dear a line from our School Song “perseverance our motto resolve to conquer wrong”.

My wife for a significant period of her life was raised in Cedar Park and many of my childhood friends all called Cedar Park home, so today is truly a special moment as I am coming to a place that centers me –

and to paraphrase Robert Frost – this Constituency reminds me that I have many miles to go and promises to keep before I can truly Sleep.

I consider myself a servant leader. I have always been committed to service, as Prosecutor in the Department of Public Prosecutions, a Captain in the Bermuda Regiment a Government Senator, Chief of Staff for the Premier of Bermuda.

Much of my life has been dedicated community service, whether it was teaching at the Hamilton Seventh Day Adventist GED program, serving as an Elder in my Church, providing back to school preparations and haircuts for our young boys and girls, or providing free legal advice and counseling to those in need.

My Business Leadership, as the Former CEO of a Major Telecoms Company, and now as the CEO of Seniac Consulting as well as sitting on several Boards both locally and abroad, give me significant insight and understanding the local and international business sphere.

Whenever I have called on my Community they have always answered, I recognize that my community has been very good to me and it is my responsibility and duty to be a voice and advocate for my community at this important time.

My goal is simple – to be an Advocate for hope and to foster the belief that as Bermudians we deserve to have a Better Bermuda for all.

  • Our children deserve to go to world-class schools.
  • Our Seniors deserve first class medical care
  • Our young men and women deserve to have legitimate access to the professional opportunities that exist in their own Island.

Additionally, I plan to work tirelessly to end Gang /gun-related violence on our island.

As stated in Vision 2025, The Progressive Labour Party is committed to working every day for Bermuda and Bermudians, ensuring the social cohesion and economic security for all. I am offering myself for public service and if given the opportunity I will devote all of my energy and ability to creating the Bermuda we all want to see.”

Constituency 14, I am here to SERVE YOU.

Roseanne Tucker Remarks:

Good Afternoon Everyone,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Party Leader David Burt and the PLP Candidates and Campaign Committees for this chance to represent the community of Constituency 8, Smith’s South Those of you who know me, know that my roots are in the West but, there is no part of this Island I could or would not represent. As an Island ambassador, I am the first to point out that this Island is but so long, nowhere is “that far” and surely, we must all be in each other’s backyard. I consider every resident on this Island my neighbor and hence, I do not have any difficulty understanding and/or representing the interests of the Smith’s South Electorate.

I am a British Overseas Territory Dependent Citizen born in Bermuda, the mother of one son [Michael], originally raised in Somerset, and for the last 18 years have resided in St. David’s. I’ve been involved at the branch and executive levels of the Progressive Labor Party.

In the 80s, I was one of the founding members of People for Positive Change [having ESP], grassroots, lobbyist group, trying to focus attention on, and change, the then Economic, Social, and Political shortcomings of the UBP. I also served as Secretary to the National Bowling Association and the Bermuda Cricket Board of Control.

In the 90s, in combination with the Coalition for Affordable Housing, I lobbied as the National Tenants and Future Homeowners Association bringing awareness to the Housing crisis and breaking down the barriers to get access to the houses on Southside. In 1999, I served as the 2nd Vice President of the Bermuda Public Service Association [now Union]. For four years I embraced union life for the workers at KEMH and MWI.

We celebrated International Women’s Day and the quote that showed up on my FB feed by Malala You-saf-zai was very timely and spoke directly to the real reason I want to serve. “Do not wait for someone else to come and speak for you. It’s you who can change the world. I know I cannot affect change if I am not in the places where the party-political discussions of change and making Bermuda better are taking place.

It is no coincidence that I find myself around the same age that my Mom was when she confirmed her commitment to Political leadership. As a Candidate for Sandy’s North, her face and that of my nephew adorned the 1968 PLP Election Campaign. I feel that she and my African ancestors are propelling me forward to inject truth, justice, and harmony in our political process.

It is quite clear to me, that key challenges island wide, are in the area of Employment, Education, Transportation, and Health Care Costs. There has been no increase in jobs for Bermudians. There is a serious deficit in our Historical and Liberal education. Our Transportation system has failing equipment, infrastructure and scheduling deficits and there is a pressing need to reduce the cost of nutrition and further reduce the cost of health care in this Island.

A quote contributed to Thomas Jefferson in 1809 said “The care of human life and happiness and not their destruction is the only legitimate object of good government.” “No society can surely be flourishing and happy, if the far greater part of its members are poor and miserable.”—Many in my network of friends are poor and miserable and they live in constant fear of not being able to provide for themselves, let alone a family. I agree with our Leader David Burt; there are two Bermudas and Bermudians must come first in opportunity, jobs and success in our own Country.

Voters of Constituency 8, I seek your assistance in becoming an instrument of change. The OBA said they had solutions to these problems. They said that they had bold new fresh ideas as well as the experience to get it done. They said the conditions of our country demand that we be serious about solutions.

If they have delivered in your Bermuda then fine, but if they haven’t then now would be the time to break the pattern of voting for broken political promises and vote to build the better Bermuda the PLP way. Proud, Prosperous, and free to live in peace in one Bermuda.

I thank you for listening and I ask the residents of Smith’s South for their support on Election Day.

Anthony Richardson Remarks:

Good afternoon everyone and especially the voters in Constituency #7, Hamilton South.

I am pleased to be the candidate for Constituency 7, Hamilton South in the upcoming election on Tuesday July 18, 2017. Based on our canvassing on the doorsteps, I know that some of your concerns relate to education, road safety, water supply and employment. Addressing the elephant in the room about 2 Bermudas, one voter even coined a new phrase – 3 Bermudas!! The overriding point being, that there is a severe disconnect between the haves and the have nots, and we are not as a country doing enough to reduce this disconnect.

My goal is to be your voice in Parliament when decisions are made that impact you individually or Bermuda as a nation. I believe in reality. Winning in #7 will be a challenge but I am convinced it is possible if everyone is part of the election process. Remember when nobody thought Cleveland could win the Eastern Counties Cup? I invite you play an active role in the 2017 election. Don’t be content to sit on the sidelines.. This is perhaps the most important election of our time. We would be happy to have you join our hard working campaign team, led by the well-known Roddy Burchall.

I reiterate the absolute necessity for you to be registered to vote – you and everyone you know. Don’t wait until the last minute. Make sure you have done so before Friday. Once you are registered, it is critical for you to come out and vote on election day.

For the past few months we have been out canvassing regularly For those who I have not yet met, here is a brief introduction.

I was ‘adopted into the Devils Hole area’ almost 20 years ago when I married my wife Holly and moved to Broken Hill Road. I now live close to the iconic Marsden Church and Harris’ Bay field.

I enjoy giving back to the community and served on many government boards and community and church organizations for the past 20 years or more. Most recently, I have been an active sponsor of junior tennis which has encouraged a resurgence of tournaments, especially for the 12 and under age group.

I am committed to working with the Progressive Labour Party team under Party Leader David Burt to win this election. But the work does not stop on July 18. In fact that is when the hard work will begin. I pledge to ensure that our education system can be one that is first class yet again, and I do believe it can. I pledge to ensure that we address the social ills that are plaguing our country. We can fix this, and we will. And I pledge, that with my financial background, I will play a role in ensuring we govern with responsible and prudent fiscal management.

I have a vested interest in the success of Bermuda as I have two children whom I love dearly and whom I want to live a happy, healthy, successful life in Bermuda.

I thank everyone for their assistance thus far, and the positive responses on the doorstep. I look forward to meeting you all over the next month, and look forward to July 18th.

Update: Anthony Richardson will run in Constituency #7 Hamilton South, a seat which is currently held by the OBA’s Sylvan Richards, who won with 59.71% of the vote in the last General Election. The OBA has already confirmed that Mr Richards will be their candidate again this year, and the results from C#7 in the 2012 election are below.

    “They represent a wide variety of backgrounds”

    Did Burt really say that about the PLP?

    Are my lying eyes deceiving me?

    • Cardozo J says:

      Why do backgrounds and race have to be synonymous? Seems like we have another high school dropout.

    • 32n64w says:

      The aleged wide variety of backgrounds appears to be limited to the party’s elite. As usual, the common man is ignored in favour of insider dealing to protect and reap the benefit of our collective tax dollars. Very sad.

  2. Jeremy Deacon says:

    Wayne Caines vs Glenn Smith. Too close to call?

    • inna says:

      Glenn Smith.

      Look what happened to Paula, a sitting Premier!

      • Cowpoly says:

        Glenn Smith should win every time over the former Chief of Staff to Brown! Wayne is accountable as well as Paula who can’t tell us where all the money went!!!

        • Jason says:

          You are trying to say a former Chief Of Staff is as accountable as a former Minister Of Finance and Premier? Glen only won because of how flawed Paula was as a candidate in 2012. Caines has a chance. People won’t forget the mess Paula oversaw.

          • Onion Juice says:

            Well if O.B.A.’s people vote party, and P.L.P.’s people vote party then Cains will win.
            The only advantage O.B.A. has is, their people dont swing vote or abstain.
            Sad thing is P.L.P. people do.
            Talk about psychological damage.

            • rumsoak says:

              Hey when your apartment has been rented , you will think again.

            • Wellsaid says:

              Best comment the juice ever made!

            • wahoo says:

              Psychological damage that was caused by a misleading party who demanded respect but never earned it.

            • Point boy says:

              Unless Mrs Cox runs as independent then the plp are in big trouble! Go for it Mrs Cox

          • Cowpoly says:

            Caines was associated with the mess. “Know something, say something” ring a bell or are you ok with how the government purse was abused??

    • Um.... says:

      I think as long as they didn’t bring “cog in the wheel” Paula back, a fresh face has a chance. And they actually picked someone with a credible record in the public and private sector. I don’t know Mr. Caines personally, but the people I know at Digicel say that he was a hard worker and went to bat for his staff. If he does the same for the people of Bermuda, I’d support him.

      • Point boy says:

        I’m definitely an OBA supporter. But I met Wayne way back in army days. I’m nervous. He is without doubt one of the most sincere guys I’ve met.

        I was surprised he went with the plp. He would serve us better under the current government that is moving forward.

        • Onion Juice says:

          You didnt have proclaim that you are a U.B.P. supporter, we already knew that.

          • rumsoak says:

            Just think for yourself

          • Point boy says:

            Unless Mrs Cox runs as independent then the plp are in big trouble! Go for it Mrs Cox!

          • Point boy says:

            I said OBA mis juice. Keep your sour grapes I don’t want them!

            Everything sweet here

        • Cardozo J says:

          You don’t need to use definitely, it s a double negative. Prime example of an uninformed OBA supporter. Keep this up and we’ll have Ronald McDonald as Minister of Finance.

          • Zevon says:

            It’s not a double negative. This is why the laws you passed were not in clear english.

            • Cardozo J says:

              “Definitely” and “OBA supporter” are double negatives to me Zevon. Im sure your mother would agree with me on the subject. We don’t argue in front of the kiddies.

              • Zevon says:


              • rumsoak says:

                Doesn’t a double negative make a positive?

                • Zevon says:

                  Adding the word ‘definitely’ does not introduce a double negative.

                  If you say ‘The light is definitely on’ it just means you’re sure the light is on.

                  This failure of basic english is why the laws you drafted all had to be redone a few years later by competent people.

          • rumsoak says:

            Ronald McDonald is smarter than all the PLP ministers put together.

      • Ra's al Ghul says:

        Hand picked by Ewart himself

        • Mother Theresa says:

          Yes. He is no doubt still running the show.

          • So Tired says:

            You should be hearing confessions MT rather than spending time speculating

        • Cardozo J says:

          So what? Brown was the last PLP leader that won a general election. Great move! Your political sense is pretty bad…where did you attend college? ITT Tech?

      • VJ says:

        The same goes for Mr. Richardson. He’s more than capable, and on a personal note is one of the most pleasant people I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet.

    • Let me call it for you, Wayne Caines all the way by a landslide Victory, his legacy and continued commitment to Bermuda and Bermudians of all walks of Life speaks for it’self.

      You can put any of the Caine’s brothers anywhere and they will represent and do Bermuda Proud.

  3. watching says:

    I am liking what I am seeing! Keep it up PLP!

    • DS says:

      As am i …

      • Cowpoly says:

        You guys don’t like diversity then? Or accountability? You support a platform based on what exactly?? That the OBA hasn’t taken care of the aging schools they inherit…give it a rest.
        Save your wallet, vote OBA

        • Mother Theresa says:

          Yes Yes!

          • Onion Juice says:

            O.B.A. are finished, you made promises and broke them, and showed your hand as de old U.B.P.
            The P.L.P voters who you fooled last time and are now kicking themselves in de @$$, and now see how stupid they were.

  4. i see says:

    Brown’s guys making a comeback!

    • Ra's al Ghul says:

      Must have missed that $102,000 salary as chief of Ewart”s staff. Which one of the two Bermudas does he represent?

      • Onion says:

        The same Bermuda that can afford the $10,000 PLP fundraiser.

      • Jason says:

        By that logic, any person running for public office is doing it for the salary. PLP or OBA. How would you expect us to have competent politicians if they weren’t paid somewhat competitively (as the salaries are below the private sector)?

      • Ocean Bound says:

        I’m sure he made more than that as a telecommunications CEO for over 6 years. Wayne wants to serve. Good to see him coming into public service.

      • Cardozo J says:

        How long are you going to be physically “milking” Dunkley? Seems to me you’re comfortable being the Egor of the OBA. Do better. Vote PLP.

  5. Reality Check 2017 says:

    Thank you PLP for actually announcing your candidates, as I was watching YouTube last night and saw an OBA ad with people listed as candidates – never announced?! I was and remain confused?!

    • DS says:

      Plp was the 1st to start announcing candidates … where u been?

  6. Family Man says:

    And they’re back … ‘we had to lie to you’.

    Has it been 48 hours already? I must have overslept.

    • DS says:

      They been back since yesterday when oba announced additional candidates…. wake up !!! Lol

  7. Rocky5 says:

    If Mr. Caines wins a seat, he’ll soon be challenging Burt for PLP Party Leadership!

    • Point boy says:

      I agree completely

    • .am says:

      Caines is a truly stand up guy. It’d be amazing if he somehow ended up leading the party.

      • Cowpoly says:

        Caines was serious he would of run as an independent….he is too associated with Browns abuse of the government purse to have any real chance

        • PBanks says:

          If he ran as an independent he’ll get much fewer votes than as a PLP rep, so not sure where this “any real chance” argument is coming from.

  8. mark says:

    none are good for Bermuda

    • Jim says:

      How can you make such a statement? do you know any of them personally?

    • far from it says:

      Why not take your head out of the sand and come with some substance

  9. puzzled says:

    Look at the bright side.
    When the PLP regain control there will be an instant influx in jobs. At least 2000 for bus drivers and hotel workers and Red Bull ferry drivers.

    Enjoy folks.

  10. Um.... says:

    I’m sure Glen wished PLP had announced Paula. Lol

  11. Z says:

    Congratulations to all of the candidates and thank you for your willingness to serve our country! I wish you the best in the general election.

  12. C14 Resident says:

    As a resident of C14, I’d rather see Paula Cox retake her seat than to see Mr. Caines get it. I think her accomplishments as Premier speak loud and clear. Mr. Burt is no Ewart Brown regardless of what he thinks of himself!

    • Jason says:

      Well by the looks of the news, Paula is going to make this ugly. I don’t know why anyone in the party would support her. She was at the helm for much of the financial mess that the PLP put the country through. I know you can’t get rid of everyone in the party from those years, but she would be such a bad candidate for the entire party. At least Caines is a somewhat fresh face. He can’t help but be linked with Dr. Brown. But can we place as much blame on a former Chief Of Staff as we can the former Minister Of Finance and Premier. She should go quietly into the night. She will surely harm her party if she drags this out and becomes the candidate.

      • Mother Theresa says:

        I pray she does! It will be a disaster for the PLP! Her handling of the public purse is probably why she can’t find a job.

  13. Mixitup says:

    Great candidates! Funny those poking jabs wouldn’t vote for anyone the PLP put forth…. so your opinion really doesn’t matter.

    • A Chap called Vanz says:

      Most people on both sides would vote for a feral chicken as long as it was in red or green.

      • Onion Juice says:

        Not really, P.L.P. lost de election last time because their suppoters abstained or didnt vote at all.
        O.B.A./ubp supporters vote regardless who they put in, but would be normally considered a suspect in their neighborhood on a normal day !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • wahoo says:

          plp lost the election last time because they were reeking havoc on our economy for crying out loud. If the plp lost votes it was their own fault you are only fooling yourself and maybe two others with your dumb crap.

  14. John says:

    Wayne Cannes should be leader of the PLP he eclipses Burt a thousand fold

  15. Coffee says:

    Two Bermudas ; one in attack mode and low expectation of the varied job qualification across the board for the majority of Bermudians “At least 2000 jobs for bus drivers and hotel workers and Red Bull ferry drivers.”vicious , hateful and racist .

    Two Bermudas ; one in full election preparation for a chance to build a better Bermuda for all .

  16. Onion says:

    By the looks of the 2012 results, PLP are looking at C14 to win. The other two candidates don’t appear to have a chance. Wayne Caines will surely do better than Paula did. She was a sitting Premier who appeared to not have a clue about running the country and finances. I’m sure that is the reason Glen Smith won.

  17. Ra's al Ghul says:

    Alright, Ewart’s man is back. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    • Cowpoly says:

      Brown making a comeback next…colonel Burch as well…Bring back the old guard as Bermuda needs to be taken backpack down to its knees.
      Save your wallet, vote OBA

  18. OBA Supporter says:

    Good Luck Mr. Caines , I have always looked up to you and admire your accomplishments along with how you conduct yourself ! If the Plp get back in I would like to see you as Premier.

    • Mother Theresa says:

      Hopefully that doesn’t happen!

        Explain why? Enquiring minds would like to know why you came to that conclusion..

      Unfortunately it takes a lot more than one good MP to run this island.

  19. Wow says:

    Awesome choice in Mr. Caines. I agree with the “sincerity” statement. He’ll speak across lines to mr/ms Bermuda

  20. Ocean Bound says:

    Wayne Caines is a sincere Bermudian with proven leadership. I’m glad to see him joining the process in either party. Bermuda needs more people of substance to join in. The country needs the help.

  21. lifetime says:

    Glen Smith start packing your bags!

  22. Francis says:

    So here we go again – but Paula is very angry and rightly so. She has been working the constituency – Burt misled and deceived under Ewart’s instructions. That is clear as clear can be. Glen has worked this area and is respected. Wayne is nothing but a talker – not an executor. The PLP lacks diversity and is actually just out for them – their two Bermuda’s is “take care myself and the hell with the rest.

  23. far from it says:

    i wish each candidate all the best, it was good to read you statements, I look forward with confidence that you all will serve with dignity

  24. Eugene Young says:

    Mr, Caines brings character, honesty , leadership, Godly principles, and a genuine love for Bermuda and all Bermudians, I sincerely hope he wins his seat, Because Bermuda needs more MEN like him to serve our country at this level , no matter what party he joins. There is not a man in the government that I know that can compare to him when it comes to Character and Honesty and genuine love for all Bermudians.

    One of those candidates may look shiny on the outside but has been known to be rotten on the inside.

  26. Coffee says:

    Quality candidates !

  27. quito_kid says:

    Wayne is a quality human being in all aspects – as a family man, country man and business man. No one can question his loyalty to and love for Bermuda. Wayne will serve our Island well under any party. Best wishes to you Sir!

    This is like when you need to go on a trip and you go into the back closet for the old suitcases.

    • Eugene Y says:

      And when you get to where your going on that trip and you open up that old suitcase, it has EVERYTHING you need in it, for that trip you are on .

  29. Lois Frederick says:

    Why did he talk such a load of nonsense on the video? Talk straight up normal english. We had enough of that flowery empty language from Paula.

  30. Encyclopedia says:

    Very Simple Logic –

    In the swing or marginal seats, if PLP voters stay home, OBA will win.
    If PLP voters show up, PLP will win

  31. just wondering says:

    So when Mr Caines is campaigning as the former Chief of Staff to EB perhaps he can tell us all about the overspending on all the government projects that his boss “oversaw” ? eg Heritage wharf and the TCD building

  32. Bermudian says:

    Where’s the diversity?

  33. clearasmud says:

    Wayne is certainly a very good choice and it amazes me that despite his obvious good work in the community certain people find fault because of his choice of party. This is the case with supporters of both parties and this certainly contributes to why many good people will choose to never run! We say we need a better quality of politician to represent us and then when one does we denigrate them. Amazing!
