RUSSELL PROVIDENCE: Why yuh putting so much PRESSURE on BEVERLEY RAMSEY-MOORE when you have THREE BIG HARD-BACK MEN fighting down THE WOMAN -- NIGHT and DAY and OBSTRUCTING PAN PROGRESS.
My advice to THE BEV is to FIRE THE EX-VEE PEE and THE TREASURER and the EXTERNAL RELATIONS OFFICER immediately upon reading THIS POSTING. Ah doh want to hear NO TALK about THE CONSTITUTION.
Look how much MILLIONS that KEITH DIAZ and RICHARD FORTEAU tief from PAN TRINBAGO -- and THE CONSTITUTION did not have NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT!!!
Come on BEVERLEY -- show dem THREE MAN RAT who is BOSS!!!
There’s more in the mortar than the pestle.
One of the fastest-growing occupational industries during this COVID-19 Pandemic are "Clean-Up Crews" who are being re-trained according to strict protocol-adherence. They earn above minimum with starting wages of $15-17.00CAD/Hr...
Can’t argue with that sentiment.
Claude Gonzales, from your vantage point in COVID-19 resurgent San Francisco, I urge you to continue to be vigilant and safe, and rest assured that I have nothing personal against my president, and my intent is not to "pressure madam president". However, the first amendment is my constitutional right, although not as it relates to Pan Trinbago.
My agenda is to ensure that in the absence of any legislation or recognized body, to continually, openly and publicly demand accountability and transparency from an administration that was catapulted to power espousing those values, which are not limited to financial and or contractual disclosures.
If you have information that the president does not command unanimous respect from her subordinates, and her authority is being undermined, that should not be ignored. Beverley Ramsey-Moore must clear the air and step up or step down, and call fresh elections to secure a new mandate. Firing of key members of her executive is evidence of the failure of her team, as the current executive contested the last polls as a team. Beverley Ramsey-Moore must come clean, and come forward and address these allegations, as the movement is at a standstill at present, except for the bands with leadership that possess the capacity and the will to lead.
Makes sense, but be careful not to jump out of the frying pan and into the fire, or soh dey say...
Mr. Providence appears to be expressing concerns and frustration regarding the quality/effectiveness of Pan Trinbago's executive leadership. I have no reason to doubt his concerns and hope for advancing the management, growth and stability of T&T's percussion orchestration industry. Whether his inferences are accurate or not, fundamentally he might be suggesting an opportunity for the executive of Pan Trinbago to consider investing in executive leadership development/training, if not already undertaken. That would be a more compassionate staff development strategy. Such an approach is routinely practiced by major industries and governments to ensure ongoing individual competence and operational effectiveness. I offer for consideration that the executive of Pan Trinbago adopt a similar staff development approach. I am confident that such an undertaking would be a wise investment, in support of individual growth and development as well as improvement in operational effectiveness, resulting in better outcomes for the steel percussion industry in T&T.
