Nassau, Bahamas — Breaking News coming into our newsroom at this hour is confirming that former FNM Senator and former candidate for South Beach, Tanya McCartney is to be the new head at the Mortgage Corporation.
Ms. McCartney is presently the Managing Director of Finco, the mortgage arm of RBC, who for the first time in its history, has not paid dividends and posted a loss under her watch.
Ms. McCartney is the daughter of Alphonso “Boogaloo” Elliott, a close friend and Confidant of the Prime Minister.
Sources within the OPM have confirmed the appointment and one source said,” PM is taking care of his people, his sister in law was promoted to PS and now this, nepotism of the highest order”.
Agatha Marcelle soundly defeated Ms. McCartney in 2002 even after her father and the FNM put up big money behind her.
Another source told us, ” Tanya had a bitter taste of politics after it was alleged that Carl Bethel started a nasty rumour campaign against her and another colleague in the Punch. This was during the period when he served as Chairman of the FNM prior to the 2007 elections”
We will not report the bile or the nasty rumour that Carl Bethel was alleged to have started against Ms. McCartney, but we will report what a close friend of Carl Bethel told us about him. “He is a nasty, vindictive, sleazy and is a devious person who makes a poor excuse for a human being.”
The move from Finco is said to be due to the level of changes being made within RBC. The Trinidadians are taking over and making staffing changes. Several long time employees have been sent packing with one year’s salary. We will deal with RBC another day.
