Having served as the political assistant to the Premier for the past seven years, is no stranger to the political arena. He believes his career has given him solid, hands-on experience that will stand him in excellent stead, should he be elected as the Member of Parliament for George Town Central.
“I have been the point of contact for the people of Red Bay and George Town for the past seven years, especially when it comes to issues that involve infrastructure enhancements, such as improving roads and drainage, but also when people are searching for employment and educational opportunities as well,” he advised.
Prior to his move into the political arena, Frank’s career was in the areas of environmental health and construction. This experience has given him a solid foundation with which to assist people in his community when it comes to rectifying infrastructural concerns. Frank said he had been a responsive contact for many people in the George Town area, and was always quick to try and resolve their problems.
“I am always just a phone call or email away and do my very best to respond to queries straight away, it’s absolutely entrenched in me,” he confirmed. “I have a proven track record of working for the people of George Town.”
If elected, Frank said a key area of focus for him would be to unite the separate communities of his constituency through one of his great passions, sport.
“I would love to see a more unified constituency, one that bonds together over sporting activities,” he confirmed. “From Tropical Gardens to Central Scranton, I want to see the entire community come together, perhaps through social games of football or basketball. Sport brings people together in a way like no other activity.”
Frank is convinced that creating a more close-knit community can only serve to enhance the area for all. In addition he believes greater contact among people in the community could open more opportunities for young people to take up meaningful training and education, especially vocational programmes. Given his 30 year involvement in the construction industry, Frank is keen to impart his knowledge of construction with young people who also share that interest. “I am an advocate for hands-on training and will work with employers to have more apprenticeships and earn-as-you-learn opportunities available for our youth,” he said.
He felt that keeping young people gainfully occupied and employed would also mean a decrease in crime as their outlook became brighter.
“We must find creative ways to properly get behind our youth,” he stated. “I have been a part of some great initiatives in this regard, such as the Maples Grass Roots Football programme. I’ve also coached the women’s national football squad, as well as George Town Primary School students. I am passionate about allowing young people the opportunity to grow and develop to their full potential through a variety of channels.”
Frank is a keen sports person in his own right, having represented his country in track and field, basketball and football and this is an area of focus that he would like to develop further for the youth of the islands.
Having worked in the field of environmental health for many years, environmental protection is another area Frank said he would give his attention to, should the constituents of George Town Central vote him in, come the 14th April General Election.
Education is another area of focus about which Frank feels very strongly. “Education starts with parents and parenting skills is something I am keen to develop,” he stated. “Schooling is obviously a vital part of the child’s education, but I believe it starts in the home.”
Sports, the environment and education are areas in which he sees he can make a valid contribution, not only for the people of George Town Central, but to the wider Cayman Islands community as well.
