PLP Candidate Announced For Upcoming By-Election

Premier David Burt presented the canddate  for the upcoming by-election in a press conference today. "It is my pleasure to present today the Progressive Labour Party candidate for Warwick North East, Mr. Curtis Dickinson.

The upcoming bye-election has given us the opportunity to field a PLP candidate of the highest quality.  Curtis graduated from The Berkeley Institute, received his undergraduate degree from Morehouse College, and earned an MBA in Finance from the Columbia University School of Business. Curtis has worked at the highest levels of Finance in New York, London, and here in Bermuda.  For the last 12 years he has worked at Butterfield Bank, currently as the Executive Vice President, Group Head of Private Banking.

Curtis is also committed to his community.  He currently serves as the Chair of Bermuda Hospitals Board and the Board of Education. He has previously served as Vice Chair of Bermuda Economic Development Corporation and as Treasurer of the Centre on Philanthropy.

Though this is Curtis’ first foray into elected office, I have been fortunate to receive his counsel over the last few years while I served as the Shadow Minister of Finance. Curtis was among the PLP members responsible for formulating the economic policies that were articulated in our Budget Replies, our election platform, and that have served us well during our first 9 months in government, as we attract jobs an investment to Bermuda.

Curtis's financial expertise and community involvement makes him an excellent addition to the Progressive Labour Party team.  Over the next month, I believe that Curtis will connect with the people of Warwick North East, that they will see the value he brings to Bermuda, and that on June 7th they will vote for this outstanding Bermudian to represent them in them House of Assembly.

I am pleased that he has stepped forward to serve in this capacity, and am extremely proud to name Mr. Curtis Dickinson as the Progressive Labour Party candidate for Constituency 25, Warwick North East".
