The FNM continues to recruit and ratify exciting and well-qualified candidates that will serve their Constituencies well.”

“Travis L. Robinson was ratified to represent the FNM in the Bain and Grants Town Constituency.

He is also completing a Bachelor of Science in Tourism Management at The College of The Bahamas.

We are proud to have Travis represent the FNM in Bain and Grants Town. Having grown up in Bain and Grants Town, Travis will bring a much needed perspective on the adversities faced daily by those who grow up in our Over-the-Hill Communities.”

“Reece Chipman was ratified to be the standard bearer for the FNM in the Centerville Constituency. Mr. Chipman is a product of the Over-the–Hill community of Farm Road and Centerville and is the grandson of legendary entertainer John “Chippie” Chipman.

In his capacity as a Director on the Public Workers Cooperative Credit Union, Vestry Member, and a Synod Representative for the St. Agnes Parish Church, he has assisted many with financial relief programs, educational commitments and community development. Reece is married to Tara Chipman nee Sands, and they have four children. Reece’s commitment and work in the Centerville community will bring a welcomed approach to Parliament next year since their current representative, Prime Minister Christie, could not even be bothered to visit Centerville following Hurricane Matthew.”

“I’m excited by the prospects of our many talented candidates who are seeking to represent constituencies under the FNM banner, including our six new candidates. It is time for all Bahamians to unite behind the FNM and its candidates to rid this country of the PLP and their empty rhetoric and broken promises. The FNM and our great candidates will fight for the Bahamian people each and every day.”
