An independent voice
Patricia first entered the political fray in 1993, running as an Independent candidate in Warwick against the then-Immigration Minister to protest the inequitable spousal immigration policy of the time. Although unsuccessful at the polls, the policy was later changed.
Through her time in politics, Patricia has built a reputation as a straight talker who is not afraid to defy the powers that be when she believes right is on her side. She has shown courage in standing her ground when others would have given up.
Building a better economy
As a senior financial executive and accountant, Patricia understands how the Bermuda economy works and how it can be made to work better for the benefit of all. As Shadow Minister of Finance, she has pushed for reductions in payroll tax to help to increase employment and to raise work permit fees to encourage Bermudian employment.
As chair of the Public Accounts Committee, she has kept a laser focus on Government spending, making sure that taxpayers get value for money.
As a former Health Minister, she also understands the balance required to make sure Bermudians get good and affordable health care which is also sustainable.
The voters of Devonshire East value MPs who have the courage to speak for them. We will do better!
