Minister Rivers to stay put

Cabinet Minister Hon. Tara Rivers says she is staying right where she is, even after her Coalition for Cayman (C4C) colleague Winston Connolly left his post as her right arm and crossed the floor to the opposition benches. Mr. Connolly had been education councillor in her ministry.

Thursday night on The Panel, Minister Rivers says she will remain a minister on the government side because she has a mandate to fulfill. “I am doing the work of this country as they asked me to do. It is important that I work to the best of my ability and to serve the interests of the people to the best of my ability,” she said.

Minister Rivers tells us she and Mr. Connolly’s relationship has not suffered as a result of his decision to leave the caucus. Mr. Connolly felt his ideas were not getting the party’s support and that is why he felt compelled to leave the government side of the Legislative Assembly.
