“I am honored to have the support of Coalition for Cayman because of its commitment to returning honesty and integrity to our Government,” said McTaggart. “We can never be too honest. As a CPA, I’ve followed a strict code of ethics my entire career. As a MLA, I’ll work to make ethics a priority in our government, including policies that bring more transparency to government projects and spending.”

Winston Connolly is a qualified attorney and partner in a financial services company in which he acts as a director to a number of high profile investment funds.

Struggling families, professional advancement and education standards are worth fighting for, and that’s why I’m running for MLA for George Town,” said Connolly. “I subscribe to the principles of the Coalition for Cayman and believe it is time to bring strong, independent-minded leadership to the Legislative Assembly that will rise above the deviseness of party politics and offer sound, bi-partisan solutions to Cayman’s biggest challenges.”
