George Town South
7:15 - 9:30 p.m.
Barbara Conolly, seeking re-election in the constituency of George Town South, was born in George Town and has lived in that district all of her life.
Barbara was the Parliamentary Secretary for the Ministry of Education and Youth and Finance and Economic Development and also the Deputy Speaker of the House of Parliament. She also acted as Speaker occasionally. She acted as Temporary Minister periodically for both Ministers, Hon. Juliana O’Connor Connolly and Hon. Roy McTaggart.
Barbara was also a Member of the Public Accounts Committee, Member of the Oversight Committee of the Office of the Ombudsman, and the Chairperson of the Organizing Committee of the Youth Parliament.
The reason Barbara has decided to run for public office again is because she is keen to continue to work with a Government who has experience and a proven track record that demonstrates that they have the ability to continue to manage a pandemic in order that our borders can be opened in a safe and cautious manner and return our economy to a strong and stable position.
Having spent the last four years working at a grass roots level for her constituency, she wants to continue her work “on the ground” making improvements to the lives of those around her.
She is not the sort of person to come up with ideas and then delegate to others to carry out. She is much more interested in showing by example.
Barbara loves to exercise and has walked (for exercise) her constituency of George Town South for many years.
She has two children, Erika and Alexander and two grandchildren, Arianna and Ciara.
Top 3 national issues that Barbara intends to address, if elected:

My name is Alric Lindsay and I am a Caymanian who has lived in George Town for over 40 years. Over the years, I have been grateful for the opportunities to work with others in the community, including the People for the Protection of Smith Barcadere, the Cayman Food Bank, volunteering for Cruise Port Referendum Cayman, serving as a member of the Conditional Release (parole) Board and volunteer activities with the Meals on Wheels program. I am also a past member of the Rotary Club of the Cayman Islands during which time I acted as an advisor to high school students in the Junior Achievement program.
As a professional, I initially qualified as a certified public accountant and, subsequently, I qualified as an attorney-at-law. I am also an accredited director with the Governance Institute of Canada.
As an MP, I will explore opportunities to create additional sources of revenue and work on increasing efficiency, transparency and accountability within the government. I will work with other MPS to ensure that Cayman has a vibrant economy, supported by a top-class educational structure (traditional and vocational) which focuses on effectiveness on learning and consistently produces Caymanian talent and increases the employability of our people. A good infrastructure must also include a highly rated health care system that is accessible by all and which provides good, affordable coverage. The health of our environment is also important. We must identify further areas that require protection and take measures to reduce waste and pollution.
