CONSTITUENCY 13 , DEVONSHIRE NORTH CENTRAL
EMAIL:firstname.lastname@example.org | 294.3213
I am the One Bermuda Alliance candidate in Devonshire North Central. It’s the parish in which I live – my family built their homestead there. I have lived in the community for 35 years. All three of my children were born there.
I am a father, a person of faith and a professional man with a finely-honed sense of responsibility.
I have a Bachelor’s degree from Queen’s University in Canada and certification in a number of areas of Information Technology and Project Management.
A good part of my career has been involved with information technology. I have worked as an IT Manager at the Bermuda Post Office, the Berkeley Institute and the Bank of Bermuda. More recently, I served on the Telecommunications Advisory Board.
"Workers need to work, children need education and families need to be safe."
Passionate about the need to tackle Bermuda's problems head-on, Anthony Francis believes that the answer lies in effective leadership. "We expected leadership to provide a path, but this path never materialized. Gone are the days that one can just talk about what needs to be done, the people of Bermuda need leaders who are going to deliver."
A Queen's University graduate, and a leader in his field, Anthony is the IT manager at the Bermuda Post Office, previously having served as the Director of Information Services at Berkeley. Having lead many large budget projects during his career, Anthony believes he has the experience to lead and execute for the people of Bermuda. "Our island needs integrity and character, not promises without resolution. Leadership has to be visible and accessible."
Anthony's commitment to Bermuda's youth runs deep, not just as a father of three children, but as an avid sportsman involved as both an executive member of the BFA and as a former president of the Bermuda Referees Association. Anthony believes the OBA has the desire to include the young and readily teach the next generation. While he knows the task of correcting the ills that have encompassed the island is by no means simple, he isn't content to hope for change, but rather he intends to be part of creating the change for the whole of Bermuda.
A firm believer in openness and transparency, and a resident of Devonshire for some thirty-four years, Anthony Francis is the approachable candidate the constituents of Devonshire North Central can look forward to dealing with in the future.
"Bermuda has waited for too long for quality leadership and they shouldn't have to and wait too much longer. This isn't politics as usual."
