“All of our candidates [of Solutions Barbados] love God and plan to lead this nation in righteousness and humility.”
Speaking to Loop News after their second-anniversary concert and launch in Independence Square on Saturday, November 25, 2017, Founder of Solutions Barbados Grenville Phillips II made this abundantly clear.
He said the candidates are ready to serve the people of Barbados.
“We have attracted 25 highly competent candidates who understand the concerns of constituents and are prepared to represent their interests because they genuinely care. Our candidates are in their constituencies every week.”
Solutions Barbados 2nd Anniversary concert & launch
When persons saw the entertainment line-up for the concert and launch over the weekend, many remarked on the fact that it was purely local gospel artistes.
“We want people to view Solutions Barbados accurately. That is, that we are the most diverse party, with approximately half or our Candidates being ladies with demonstrated competence.
“Whether or not we choose to acknowledge it, we as a nation depend on God. Our National Anthem confirms that, with Him still on the people’s side we have no doubts or fears. Since we do not want Barbadians to be doubtful or fearful about the future, we have no intention of putting that relationship in jeopardy.
Leading in righteousness means leading in doing right things. Leading in humility means that we are not demanding to be lords, but offering to be servant-leaders.”
He asserted that the platform they set was not about ‘How it gonna look’ or a gimmick.
He told Loop, that the plan for Solutions Barbados is to inform all Barbadians “about our highly competent and diverse candidates, and our highly effective, economical, and proven plans for the responsible development of Barbados.”
Choosing Solutions Barbados next General Elections, according to Phillips would mean that citizens are opting to go with “the most effective non-austerity plan for improving the economy for themselves and their children.”
With many hiding their hands and making blind political promises until they win the election, Phillips assured voters, that they have four-point plan comprising lowering taxes, improving the management of government services, depoliticising the public service, and eliminating corruption.
And he asserted, “Our plan is not some theoretical untried plan, but it is proven. It is proven that a country takes in more revenues when it reduces its tax rates. It is proven that better managed public services result in less wastage and a higher level of customer satisfaction. It is proven that a politicised civil service can ruin a country, and it is proven that corruption results in severe austerity for most citizens.”
The performers included Nicovia, Gozzy & Ekco, Ordene Dottin and Neesha Woodz. The event attracted persons of different races and ages on Saturday evening as they sat and stood around the Square to hear the candidates points and plans for the individual constituencies.
