Well I hope that PAN MEN in TRINIDAD WOKE ENOUGH to recognize the LEVEL of ADMINISTRATIVE and MANAGEMENT TALENT that MR. ROBERT HERNANDEZ could bring to the LEADERSHIP OF PAN TRINBAGO and not go back and VOTE FOR BACKWARD BEVERLEY.

ALL PRAISES AND SUPPORT for MR. ROBERT HERNANDEZ to WIN THIS OFFICE and UPLIFT THE PAN MOVEMENT!!!

I will ask the same questions I asked of the present regime.

Pan Trinbago is a multi-million dollar organization with million of dollars in debt;

  • What experience do you have in running a multi-million dollar company?
  • What plans do you have on reducing the debt scenario?
  • For four years pannists have not been paid. What are your plans to rectify this?

I can work with this man, but not with Carlon Harewood.

Carlon Harewwood has no place as an executive member in any Pantrinbago administration. Beverley Ramsey Moore's or Robert Hernandez's.

Brilliant and timely political statement!

Dexter "Tac Tac" Simon, Carlon's colleague at the national steel band, on his death bead in 2005, when he could hardly pronounce words because of his weakened condition, said, "Mamba, oh gord boy, yuh going back Africa and leave Tac boy? Yuh know how long ah eh get pay dread, ah hear Carlon an dem fucking up mih salary boy!? 

Carlon an dem (whoever Dem is or are) did fuck up Tac Tac's salary. 

I jumped on a plane an went back to Africa. Dexter "Tac Tac" Simon died the following day.

Quote me on that, I have court house clothes ready. I don't need a lawyer. 

Robert Hernandez's resume is impressive.

The steelband movement need people like Mr. Hernandez and Aquil Arrindell at the helm.

Quote me on that too!

“.. word on the ground is that ROBERT HERNANDEZ has a BIG LEAD in the UPCOMING PAN TRINBAGO ELECTIONS". Steupsssssss. Where you living? Stop coming on the forum and spreading propaganda on the forum. Hernandez and the band of four thieves has been meeting every week in Neal & Massy Trinidad All Stars pan yard. The pan yard which our sitting secretary of PanTrinbago, the honourable Denise Hernandez, belongs to. They gather to talk lies about Beverly Ramsey Moore, our president (queen of pan). Hernandez is a puppet for Carlon Harewood, Dane Gulston and Gerard Mendez, all of whom are reported by our president to be involved in some sort of extortion and pilfering from the membership moneys. Desiree Meyers, Chairwoman, drop them like a hot potato, and their latest addition is Morris, the drunk of the north zone and Martin Caine, failed Desperadoes captain. Martin Caine is known to be Carlon Harewood's partner in crime. The whole pan movement knows about the Carlon and Martin Caine history from NSO, and what happened with Caine on the cruse ship he worked on, all of which would be properly exposed closer to the election. We are not worried at all by that group of mercenaries. I would say nothing about Duvon Stewart's involvement at this time, but would say to him, it is time to return home. Tobagonians are people of integrity and we know who to associate with. 

Claude Gonzales, you and your group of Know It All's, know nothing as Expats, as the young people say, miss Trinidad and Tobago with that BS, and stay in your corner. The drum factory up and running and the bands would finally get some money under this president Ms. Beverly Ramsey Moore.”

This post was since May 28th and;

Nothing has changed with Robert Hernandez and this pack of thieves he campaigning with. They still in All Stars yard drinking, cussing, fussing and bad talking the best president pan Trinbago ever seen in the history of the organization, the queen of pan, Miss Beverly Ramsey Moore.

Nothing has changed. Racist, sexist, hater of Tobagonians Claude Gonzales pushing anybody but Beverly, even if is crooks running for office.

But what is amazing is that a man with all them degrees so politically dunce that he don’t know Carlon, Mendez and Dane are political poison. He can probably fool stupid Trinidadians with that false resume but we here ain’t go fall for that.

Greetings & Blessings to you RALEY KING 

I don't really respond to any comments made with my name being mentioned,

but I WILL DEFEND MYSELF AT ALL COST. ALL I HAVE IS MY NAME  

Jus wanna make something CRYSTAL CLEAR TO YOU 

I DUVONE STEWART IS AN INDEPENDENT STEEL-PAN MUSICIAN BY PROFESSION.

I AM NOT A BAND 

I AM A BRAND 

With the comment, you made towards me in your message which stated 

"I would say nothing about Duvone Stewart's involvement at this time but would say to him, it is time to return home. Tobagonians are people of integrity and we know who to associate with". 

My question to you is WHAT IS MY INVOLVEMENT WITH YOUR RESPONSE TO THE TOPIC YOU'RE SPEAKING ABOUT PLEASE I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR. 

I am from TRINIDAD & TOBAGO and THE WORLD IS MY HOME, MUSIC IS MY LIFE, I may work with STEELBANDS ALL OVER THE WORLD, but this is as far as I go.

PLEASE WORRY NOT ABOUT ME, I AM HOME, AND I KNOW WHO TO ASSOCIATE WITH. 

DO HAVE A BLESS DAY 

Word on the ground is that STEELBANDS and DELEGATES are responding very favourably to this candidate. And they are especially impressed by his Curriculum Vitae. MR. ROBERT HERNANDEZ is cutting into the lead of the current president BEVERLEY RAMSEY-MOORE and is very likely to win MORE VOTES in the NORTH than her.

If I had to bet right now I would say that MR. ROBERT HERNANDEZ is on his way to VICTORY and becoming THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF PAN TRINBAGO -- as long as BEVERLEY RAMSEY-MOORE is honest enough HOLD THE ELECTIONS and NOT POSTPONE IT!!!
