| 31/01/2017 | 14 Comments

(CNS Elections): Over the next few months, an as yet unknown number of parties and candidates will be telling voters about their plans and ideas for the Cayman Islands. Here on CNS, we will be asking you what you think about the issues, starting with the order of importance that you give them. Our polls are open to everyone, so they are not restricted to registered voters, but they will be one tool to gauge the mood of the residents of the Cayman Islands as we head up to Election Day.

    Politicians being able to give hand outs to win votes with Government assistance such as building supplies etc. Also postal ballots from disables without the consent of their Legal guardian.

    Would like something done to give the mortgage holder more say in their mortgage, for example, the person with a mortgage should be able to choose what company they want to have a valuation of their property since the mortgage holder has to pay for the valuation. The way it is now, the bank get who they want to do the valuation.

      not sure which bank you bank with but at CNB and RBC once it’s a registered surveyor the bank doesn’t care where

        You are totally wrong 3.34pm. The mortgage holder no longer chooses what company does the valuation even though we are in fact paying for it. I asked the bank why and they’re answer was this is the way it is now. RBC even went so far to admit to me that all of the valuation companies are devaluing homes! I asked how can they do that and RBCs response was because of all the foreclosures. Well…I say that is plain nonsense they are devaluing the homes because they are protected and something needs to be done.

          That’s correct. If you have a mortgage what the banks do now is pretty much use a broker who throws all the valuation companies into a hat and then picks one to do the valuation. If you yourself go to lets say DDL. JEH or any of those companies and get it done first hand the bank refuses to use them insisting it goes through their broker. Now here’s the thing – why are the banks allowed to do this? One would assume that all of these established valuation companies all have certified inspectors and have gone through the necessary steps to acquire their home evaluator credentials. Just insane, the banks need to be stopped.

    The right to be caymanian if passed down because you got it through status with no caymanian heritage, then you cannot pass the citizenship further than your direct minor children.

    Legalizing abortions. Longer bar hours which is good for the tourist product. Tougher animal cruelty laws. Strong child and elderly protection laws without a limitation of time to prosecute even if years in the past. Proper rehab center. More tertiary universities with affiliation internationally – brings students and helps local students. Reduced or removal of customs duties.

      does anyone else see the irony in this poster asking for “Strong child….protection laws” and “Legalizing abortions” in the same post?

        Legalized abortion pill. Free abortions at the public hospital.

        I don’t see the irony. I see that women still have limited rights with their bodies. I see children neglected because they weren’t wanted to begin with but were born into the world. I see a huge skills gap problem because those same children grow up and have no future.

    What about child support and enforcing the court issued payments without the mothers having to waste court time to chase the deadbeat?

    Online payments for fines. Similar saves court time instead of clogging the list with minor cases.

    One of my top concerns not listed is infrastructure projects. The traffic coming from the east is not sustainable and people are losing valuable time. Something needs to be done with the roads or the schools to help.

    My first concern is the unbridled development. If our politicians were not controlled by developers maybe we could address the other issues.
