MESSAGE FROM CHRIS SAUNDERS
Good morning my friends,
Earlier today, I held a brief meeting with Premier Panton. It is clear from that meeting that the Premier and I have differences that are material to us working together, and as such, I have resigned as a Minister of Cabinet and a member of PACT effective immediately.
While I am sure that many of you would love to know what those differences are, in the best interest of our beloved Cayman Islands it is best that those differences remain between the Premier and me. The political stability and the international reputation of the Cayman Islands are more important than those differences.
In the past, I would remind my colleagues that M.P. means more to me than D.P. and I look forward to continuing my role as an Independent Member of Parliament representing the good, decent, and hardworking people of my home district of Bodden Town West.
As you would imagine, the nature of politics requires that this situation be used to destabilize the government and by extension our country, and as such, I encourage you all to not fall prey to those temptations and instead keep this Government in your prayers.
The Government failures are our failures.
The Government challenges are our challenges.
The Government successes are our successes.
I wish my former colleagues in the PACT Government all the best and look forward to working with them on the opposite side of the aisle in Parliament.
May God bless you all and may God continue to bless our beloved Cayman Islands.
One love. One Cayman
