PPM confirms its George Town candidates

Leader of the Opposition Hon Alden McLaughlin and former TV reporter Kenneth Bryan cast their ballots in the PPM's internal elections to finalise its George Town candidates.

Leader of the Opposition Hon Alden McLaughlin and former TV reporter Kenneth Bryan cast their ballots in the PPM’s internal elections to finalise its George Town candidates.

The Peoples Progressive Movement on Wednesday, 27 February held its district elections in at the Seafarers Hall in Prospect, where Kurt Tibbetts, Alden McLaughlin, Lucille Seymour, Marco Archer, Joey Hew and Kenneth Bryan were all confirmed as the party’s representatives for the district of George Town in the upcoming elections.

Frank Cornwall, a building contractor who is also associated with Academy Sports Club, failed in his bid to be one of the candidates. He only got on the ballot on Friday, 22 February, reliable sources told Cayman Net News.

Speaking during the meeting, Kurt Tibbetts, said that the internal election of candidates

gave each one equal opportunity to get nominated by the party.

“Not everyone does this, but if you elect us we are going to ensure that we are the best team that will give you the best government,” he said.

Joey Hew said that this was not the first time he was being elected to public office, as he was once president of the Chamber of Commerce and held office during the reconstruction of the country following Hurricane Ivan.

“If there was any evidence to test my fortitude, it was trying to run my businesses and the Chamber of Commerce in the aftermath of Hurricane Ivan,” he said.

Earlier that day, Mr Hew was elected as a board member of the Cayman Islands Hospice Care.

Marco Archer and Lucille Seymour cast their ballots in the presence of Young Progressives President Denise Miller.

Others who spoke at the meeting were opposition leader, Mr Mclaughlin, Ms Seymour, mr Archer, Mr Bryan and Mr Cornwall.

Mr Bryan, a former television reporter, said that he was happy to be part of the team that would form the next government.

“It is a great honour to be nominated by the George Town members of my party, The Progressives. It is a responsibility that must be taken very seriously, as the people of the Cayman Islands are looking for candidates with the will to turn the country around. With the vote and support of the people, and the guidance of the senior members of the party it is a promise I know we can deliver,” he said in an email to Cayman Net News.

    Mr. Bryan,
    Let us reason, and lets be serious.

    The country needed turning around in 2009 when the PPM had destroyed it.
    Now why on earth should the voters give you another a shot at repeating the same
    incompetence all over again? This is not about the UDP or about Independents
    its about keeping the country out of the hands of folk like the Progressives, the PPM that and put the country in the ground so badly that the UDP had a landslide victory.

    Now why on earth should voters allow Alden and his party to make fools of them all over again.
    Once bitten twice shy? Seems like the PPM have a short memory.
    We remember how b ad things were in 2009.So the PPM/Progressives must not
    get their hopes up so high. We haven’t forgotten.
