A major tourist destination in the Caribbean is changing leadership as well. Attorney-at-law Sharlene Cartwright-Robinson led the opposition People's Democratic Movement (PDM) to its first election victory in 13 years, thereby becoming the British territory’s first female premier in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
Will tourists be aware of the change? Probably not since most are insulated from the day to day business on the islands. Amazingly the troubles of 2009 only became known to me after my first visit to Providenciales that same summer. Current news of Michael Misick trial is still pending.
It is all about money and greed.
