Renardo Curry, the Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) candidate for North Abaco, held a ‘meet and greet’ at Treasure Cay Public Beach on Saturday, September 8, where guests were able to enjoy an evening of music, food and drink while meeting some members of parliament including the Deputy Prime Minister, Philip ‘Brave’ Davis.
The Deputy Prime Minister told eager party-goers that “the government belongs to you because the PLP believes in you”, and to “vote with the same enthusiasm and energy you are showing tonight for Renardo Curry.”
Mr. Curry said that his campaign is about “unity and progress” and his vision is to see everyone come together in the North. “Our vision is to improve the lives of all the people.”
“We want to show them that we are about unity and bringing the people together starting here in Treasure Cay and moving throughout the north.”
He said that he sees Treasure Cay as the center of the economic improvement that he wants to see for North Abaco and that “Treasure Cay has always been one of those places that carried North Abaco when it comes to revenue and we want to see change in the whole of North Abaco.”
He said that he believes Treasure Cay and Green Turtle Cay – the two economic centers of North Abaco – have a great model that’s already in place that can built upon and that there is hope that there will soon be a buyer for Walker’s Cay and the tourism that they once enjoyed in that area can be revitalized.
“We have to get the mindset of the people to think about owning business and not just working for the government,” he said adding that it’s going to take a lot of working to change the mindset of the people.
“This is a reminder that we are looking for change and that’s why a good number of young people here tonight. They are ready for the vision of change for North Abaco,” he said.
Mr. Curry told the audience that the PLP is the government of the Bahamas and he is the representative of the PLP. “Vote for me and I will work hard for the things you want to see happen in North Abaco. Give me the opportunity to serve you and I will serve you with dignity and pride.”
