Independent MLA’s continued their slate of district meetings Monday night in West Bay, despite anemic turnout from the public.
Arden Mclean, Ezzard Miller, Winston Connolly, and Al Suckoo spent the two-hour meeting explaining their positions on some of the 29 pieces of legislation expected to hear debate in coming weeks.
The MLA’s gave fiery critiques of several of the individual bills. Mr. Suckoo singled out cabinet’s role in the non-profits bill for scrutiny.
“This bill makes cabinet judge and jury, and is dangerous, because they can and will now pick up certain charities or non-profit organizations and say well [the law] doesn’t apply to you, don’t worry about it,”said Mr. Suckoo.
The MLAs blamed poor attendance at the meeting, only about a dozen people showed up, on the US presidential debate.
The independents promised to come back to West bay for future public meetings.
