Nassau, Bahamas: Front-runner in the PLP Deputy Leadership race, Cat Island, Rum Cay and San Salvador MP Philip ‘Brave’ Davis, visited North Bimini this past Monday and Tuesday.
During his visit, Davis entertained private meetings with Party Stalwarts, as he seeks their support ahead of the upcoming convention, advising them his plans for the Party.
While on Bimini, the candidate also engaged a number of young people and youth groups as he made his trek across the community, as a means of garnering their views on matters of national interest and offer his own vision for their input. “The greatest challenge we (the PLP) have is the involvement of more young people” he said. Turning to is own campaign Brave noted “That is why I recruited young people to work in my campaign. The people running my campaign are young –this is the direction where we as a Party must go.”
Listening to the concerns of residents on the level of crime, Davis responded by outlining his plans to strengthen the administration of the judiciary. This effort he added, will reduce the time for cases to be heard and to intervene in the lives of at-risk youth.
Residents on the island were also keen to express their concerns about the destruction of the mangroves on that island as a result of a major development. The PLP Deputy Leader hopeful assured of his plans to follow-up the environmental concerns of Biminites with the B.E.S.T. Commission and other such agencies.
Since launching on August 4th, Davis has travelled throughout the country seeking meetings and door-to-door stops with PLP Stalwarts, Delegates and supporters ahead of the PLP Convention this October.
