Sandys 360 Rarely Met Financial Commitments

Sandys 360 was a private undertaking - not a government initiative.  The trustees of Sandys 360 rarely, if ever,met their financial commitments under the terms of an “arrangement” with the PLP government.  Accordingly, it was the position of the former OBA  Government that it was not in the best interests of our Taxpayers to continue to distribute government funds to an organisation that was not honoring its own financial obligations of the arrangement with the government. 

At the time, the then PLP government provided millions of dollars in funding to the Trustees of Sandys 360. To our knowledge, and to date, neither the current government nor the former OBA government received any return on the millions of dollars invested in Sandys 360. 

It is incumbent upon any government to demonstrate to its taxpayers that their tax dollars are spent judiciously. Our taxpayers are entitled  to receive a freasonable accounting as to how their money is spent and it is fair to expect the government to expend its best efforts to recover monies that have been wrongly paid or misapplied.

We would like Mr Lister to substantiate the basis for his claim that the OBA government reneged on a grant to the Trustees of Sandys 360 and what the purported amount of that grant was.
