    If you don’t really care about transparency and the annual audits we are entitled to receive, vote for the NDP. Otherwise vote for the candidate that promises to be honest and supports the whistleblower law.

    As the Economist pointed out, under the NDP, the BVI economy has been depleted due to ”fiscal mismanagement and corruption.”
    If you want the rest of the world to continue to laugh at us and our children, vote for the NDP.
    If you want our dump to continue to burn, vote for the NDP.
    If you want raw sewage to continue to flow through our streets, vote for the NDP.
    If you want our schools to remain broken, vote for the NDP.
    If you want our children to remain under educated, vote for the NDP. It’s easier to be elected by and fool the uneducated.
    If you want unreliable and over priced electricity, vote for the NDP.
    If you want unreliable water supply, vote for the NDP.
    If you want to see changes in our children’s lives, vote for someone other than the NDP.

    Everyone contesting seats this year needs to be commended for doing so. Lots of people stand on the sidelines and complain about politicians, but those same people will never stand up and try to serve.

    So kudos to to these brave men and women who have stepped up to the plate, and for wanting to serve their country.

    I am particularly pleased to see many women contesting this time around. That’s progress to be celebrated as well, and a good signal to up and coming young women of what could be possible.

    Win or lose, you are all winners in my view just for trying. Wish you all the best. Now, it’s up to the electorate to select the best 13 who will govern us all for the next 4 years.
