In brief remarks, Minister Davis said he is grateful to be a part of a new direction that leads to opportunity for all Bahamians.

“This opportunity comes from an innate belief in the potential of the Bahamian people to rise to the challenge, to prepare themselves and to work hard to achieve for themselves and their families,” he said.

Davis is the Member of Parliament elect for Cat Island, Rum Cay and San Salvador.
