Creating opportunity for all is a just cause, and this cause is my central goal.
As we emerge from the Covid-19 crisis, we must not only rebuild the economy but build a better economy which serves all Bermudians.

Scott Pearman on working together

It has been my privilege to represent Paget East since 2018 when you elected me to succeed Dr Grant Gibbons.

I pledged then to emulate Grant – to put service before self, to work with diligence and integrity to further the interests of our Paget community and all Bermudians and to do so with dignity and respect for others too often missing from our public discourse. I pledged, to always be prepared and to speak with clarity and conviction on issues large and small.

Two years on, I hope I have begun to emulate that great record.

From the constituency, for the constituency

I was born and raised in Paget and live in the constituency with my wife and our four young children.

By taking care of our community – helping neighbours, maintaining safe streets and public services, we are doing our part to make sure the Island works for you and your family.

That’s been my starting point as MP for Paget East – making sure the community around us supports and enriches our day-to-day lives.

Compassion, education, opportunity and teamwork

Since being elected in 2018, I have worked hard to fight for all of the people of Bermuda. Part of my focus has been on the economy and finding ways to expand tourism and international business to generate more and better jobs for Bermudians. In the midst of the Covid-19 crisis, we must do better to ensure our fellow Bermudians have good jobs that don’t just put food on the table and a roof over their heads, but give them a genuine feeling Bermuda is working for them.

Since being elected, we have faced a crisis that has put many of our most vulnerable at even greater risk than they were before.

To ensure that they and Bermuda are safe starts with compassion but depends on building a better Bermuda for all. That means a strong focus on education that effectively prepares Bermudians for a very challenging world. It means building and maintaining an economy that creates opportunities for all Bermudians to grow and prosper. It means breaking down barriers that hold back individual development. It means making sure we live by a system that gives everyone a fair chance to succeed.

This, I believe, is the way to build One Bermuda – held together by responsibility, trust and the understanding that we work best when we work together.

A strong economy for social progress

With your support, I will continue to work to make sure Bermuda’s Government – no matter the party in power – builds and maintains a strong economy. We need this for jobs, personal growth and social progress – for healthy families, individuals in need and programmes that support Bermudian ambitions.

This is achievable, particularly if we put compassion, inclusivity and fair treatment at the centre of our government. These are values I am proud to advocate and prepared to defend.
