“George Town North deserves leadership which can be trusted to do the right thing, to represent the views of the majority of the constituency and not merely represent the interests of friends, families and financiers of election campaigns,”
(CMR) Local businessman Johann Moxam announced today that he intends to stand as an independent candidate in the upcoming April election for the constituency of George Town North.
Moxam is a familiar face as one member of the CPR Cayman group that successfully challenged the government on the port issue in 2019.
Sharing that Cayman is at crossroads he states the time for excuses and awarding incompetence is over. Moxam explained that in his view the status quo and the current administration work primarily for a select few “political elite” whilst most Caymanians are disenfranchised.
He blames inconsistent, expense and unsustainable decisions that demonstrate a “lost connection with the majority” as key factors for why this government is failing its people. This has lead to “growing frustration and despair amongst working-class families and young Caymanians.
