| 25/01/2021 | 13 Comments

(Press release): Raul Nicholson-Coe has announced that he will be a candidate in the upcoming election on 26 May 2021. He will be running as an Independent candidate for the Member of Parliament in the West Bay South constituency. “I am extremely proud and excited about the opportunity to represent the people of this constituency. My focus will be to ensure that we address the issues that have prevented the progression of our Caymanian community. This is a unique constituency as it encompasses a large part of the hospitality industry as well as a socio-economically diverse set of residences.

While this is unique, it creates the opportunity to develop solutions that can address the economic and social issues that are affecting us in these extremely difficult times. It’s important to realise the issues faced by one Caymanian is not the same for all, however through regular collaboration with the community I hope to improve the lives of those in my constituency.”

Nicholson-Coe’s key focus over the next several weeks will be to meet and canvas the entire West Bay South constituency to get insights on the issues that are affecting them. Raul added, “During these difficult times it is important we get a better understanding of the social, economic, education, employment, housing and health issues that our community is facing. Policies to address these issues cannot be developed without engaging the entire community.”

He will be providing voters with comprehensive strategies and plans to address the most important issues which will include:

• Cost of living
• Employment opportunities & education
• Opportunities for the youth
• A New Approach to Housing
• Post COVID economic and social recovery plan
• Community engagement – post elections
• Conservation
• Core values and Cultural Identity

The people of West Bay South want a new approach to political representation in Parliament. Nicholson-Coe humbly asks the people for the opportunity to serve them with bold leadership and implement comprehensive new strategies to address the needs of all the residents within the constituency.

Nicholson-Coe is the CEO/Owner of Catalyst, a mechanical, electrical and plumbing company which he invested in 4 years ago. With over twenty years experience in telecommunications, he is the former Digicel Cayman CEO and presently serves as senior advisory to the Board of Directors. Raul currently serves on several boards: he is a member of the Special Economic Advisory Council and is also the deputy chairman of the Innovation and Technology sub-committee and a board member of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Cayman Islands, and a Trustee of the International College of the Cayman Islands (ICCI).

He served as a trustee on the Board of Directors of the Chamber of Commerce Pension Fund and was a member of the Cayman Islands Cycling Association. A former member of the Board of Directors of the Caribbean Utilities Company (CUC) from 2001 to 2005 and director of the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA) from 2009 to 2014.

    As a candidate, how do you respond to the lack of water quality monitoring for locals, children, and visitors alike:

    A strong McMac man without a moral compass, the soup kitchen is only a campaign tool; vote for him and corruption will reach a all new high!

    Oh no. This is not good.

    The soup kitchen and toys give away at Christmas was a strong indication that this was going to happen.

    Sad that you start your campaign with soup and toys.

    How about some empowerment.

    I would sooner spoil my vote than cast one for PPM or CDP yes-people. To be honest, even the CIPP leadership cast lacks credibility, having presided over PAC for years and not having held a single person to occupational account, let alone charges. 3C might have offered hope had the trio not also included an abysmal former party member, trailing behind in the team jersey, hoping nobody notices.

    We need a unified ensemble, that is willing to be honest about the herculean task of dealing with our entrenched corruption issues, and fielding a credible team to deal with it all. We need to hear their plans to increase transparency, accountability, and broaden representation.

    Note: that’s the opposite of this guy’s stated ambition of entrenching old dogma, xenophobia, and conservation of what?Creationist-based corrupt traditions? It’s not the Environment, or he would have said that.

    At this round, we should be well beyond misleading bullet points, and campaign tag lines that sold in the past. We thirst for honest ambitions, and executable vision that speaks to the meat of public conversation. That this guy doesn’t even acknowledge the public’s frustration with the 800lb gorilla, is disqualifying in my opinion – and I say that as a voter for WBS.

    Raul, when I saw the community soup kitchens I did wonder if you were going to run since I thought you weren’t;t working with Digital anymore. (hope your company is doing well, rough times for all of us).

    Secondly, it would be ironic if you were to beat Tara, because I thought (please correct) you and both your parents weren’t born here and you have status because of great grand parents…..

    Third. If you’re running with Mr. Bush to replace your buddy CG, let us know. You might get votes if you do.

    I hope to get answers here but if not, will ask at your meetings or in person.

      Neither of them suitable. Alden’s lackey and Coe Mac’s lackey. Please show more respect for yourself and the honourable house this election.
