I promise you -- MR. MERCER -- that as the ELECTION DAY gets closer, I will be addressing the issues of HONESTY and INTEGRITY.
However, I am assuming that you were born and grew up in TRINIDAD and TOBAGO, in which case you should know that HONESTY is a scarce resource when TRINIS are put in charge of MONEY (if ah give you the latest example yuh bound to hold yuh head and bawl) -- and for INTEGRITY ... who needs that.
Yuh cyar buy no RUM and ROTI with INTEGRITY!!!
But I do promise that I will return to the subject two weeks before the election!!!
When I left Trinidad, Honesty was not as scarce as it is now.
'honesty and integrity'.
qualities that are hard to find among our candidates.
it is not a PT thing, it is TT thing.
a lot on members would get fool by smooth talkers once more.
Who's running his campaign Cambridge Analytica?
Selling an image, next thing yuh know people buying Cap and Tee shirts to promote his campaign.
Man look like he is Pan Faddah, his sense of ENTITLEMENT.
Respect yuh ELDERS...people still think pan players DOTISH.
Where is OWEN SERRETTE when yuh need him...
As president of Pan Trinbago, in order to internationalise the organisation, Serrette established Pan Trinbago chapters in Canada, New York and Arizona, and formed alliances with Caribbean steelband organisations.
Cultural exchange programmes were also established, with lasting relationships, whereby local musicians, tuners and arrangers secured performances and work abroad.
An amazing caveat of Serrette's stint as president is that he served strictly in a voluntary capacity. "At no time during the years I spent as president of Pan Trinbago did I receive a salary," he revealed.

I was told that since this picture went up on THIS FORUM, three bands from TOBAGO have switched from BEVERLEY TO KERON VALENTINE. And quite a few bands from the EAST are leaning away from their original choice and starting to move in the direction of KERON VALENTINE. They are mostly waiting to see the rest of his SLATE before they JUMP ON THE KERON BOAT!!!
All the best!
