Help me put Bermuda back on her feet – a speech by Kimberlee Pitcher

By September 9, 2020No Comments

Good afternoon Bermuda, One Bermuda Alliance colleagues and members of the media,

Thank you, Mr. Cannonier, for those kind words and for showing faith in me by selecting me as the candidate for constituency 4.

I am humbled and also very excited.

A little about me.

I am a nursing assistant looking after our seniors and have a Bachelor of Science in psychology.

I don’t need to tell you – Bermuda has her work cut out for her.

An ageing population, high cost of living, financial debt and our children lost in gangs.  In 2018 there was a total of 1,142 new referrals for concerns about child abuse.

Constituency # 4 is not without challenges; some challenges have been outstanding for a long time.

There is reckless speeding along Wilkinson Avenue where the roads are narrow. Speeds need to be controlled.

Residents are suffering from noise and smells from the jets at the private airport facility.  Emily’s Bay Lane appears to be falling into the sea.

I am honored to be a faithful member of the Seventh Day Adventist church in St. David’s and would like to recognize my church and their continued service with the food distribution to residents in my constituency.

The airport falls into my area.

It has provided much needed jobs for Bermudians and will continue to provide jobs for Bermudians once construction is complete.  It is a facility we should we celebrating.

I have chosen to put my feet to the ground and my heart into the issues with a determination to help my fellow Bermudians.

Join me to help Bermuda stand to her feet.
