WEDNESDAY, NOV. 28: Political newbie Nandi Davis hopes her “fresh ideas” and youthfulness will help woo voters.

The 25-year-old mother said: “When people consider voting for me, I want them to know that I bring ideas and energy to the arena.

“I represent a large group of Bermudians, being 25 years old as well as a mother.

“I know how it feels to not have a job after coming back with your degree, as well as having two jobs to try to support my family. I have made it through that. Now I want people to give me the opportunity to help them.

Ms Davis added. “We are in debt right now and somebody else needs to take charge in order for things to have a fresh start.

“Voting for the PLP would be continuing what’s going on right now. They haven’t said how they will increase jobs.”

Asked why people should vote for the OBA, Ms Davis said: “The OBA is new and everyone needs a new start.”

Asked about running in a seat where there are three candidates, she said: “One of the people running is an independent. I feel in a Westminster system, running as an independent doesn’t work. You need a team that backs you.”

Ms Davis says the ruling PLP has “neglected” St George’s.

“I feel I am the best person to bring forward fresh ideas.”
