The PLP would like to begin by extending our congratulations to OBA interim chair Trevor Moniz who appears to have come out of retirement to replace Simone Barton, who was a universally acclaimed chair in October 2018. We wish Mr. Moniz well in his new role and wish Ms. Barton all the best in her future endeavours.
The PLP believes it’s important for the Government to communicate it’s accomplishments to the people.
We often hear from the Opposition that the Government is “not doing anything” and it is the responsibility of the Government to communicate how it is serving the people. That’s what leadership is all about.
Recently, the Government has released helpful information like:
- Ten tips for going to restaurants and going to the gym during COVID
- Reminding the public about interest free home loans that are available for seniors
- Highlighted winners of Bermuda Arts Council grants
- Reminding all entrepreneurs about the tax holiday for all startup businesses
In these times of COVID and the economic recovery, it is more important than ever before that people are aware of what the Government is doing and what resources are available to them. Even though we’re in election season, we are still focused like a laser beam on the economic recovery and making sure Bermudians know that resources are available to help.
