PM Skerrit appeals to public servants to support CREAD

PM Skerrit addressing the committee of permanent secretaries

Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, has appealed to public servants to support the Climate Resilience Execution Agency of Dominica (CREAD) which was formed after the passage of Hurricane Maria in September.

The agency was formed to coordinate all reconstruction work after the hurricane and to ensure all reconstruction activities are focused on Climate Resilient Recovery Plan developed by Dominica.

A number of senior civil servants have been seconded to the CREAD but the Prime Minister assured it will not replace the public service.

Speaking at a special strategic session of the Committee of Permanent Secretaries at the Office of Disaster Management, he said the support of civil servants is important.

“It is important to have the support from you because if we as a country fail on this attempt, we will not have another opportunity,” the Prime Minister stated.

He said in addition to CREAD, the government will be setting up a trust fund.

“And one donor in particular at the donor’s conference met me privately and said we to put in $5-million into the CREAD to advance it because as I said to you there is exceptional buy-in by the donor community,” he said.

He noted that Dominica has become relevant because of its clearly articulated policy to become the first climate resilient country in the world.

“And it is about ensuring that if we are visited by another storm, another hurricane and the science is showing that these storms are becoming more ferocious and more frequent then we will be able to bounce back quicker…” Skerrit said.

He explained that the new agency will be housed in the office of the Prime Minister.

“I will have portfolio oversight of the CREAD and the CREAD will report to the Prime Minister and of course the cabinet,” the Prime Minister remarked.

    “……………Roosevelt Skerrit, has appealed to public servants to support the Climate Resilience Execution Agency of Dominica (CREAD)”. This man must be a joker you know in a pack of cards. I wonder if Skerrit (joker in the pack) really understands what he talking about and what is it he asking Dominicans to embrace?
    On a Monday he picks a card…throws it down….on Wednesday he picks another, throws it a yonder….and the beat goes on….As it comes so he flashes. For Dominica to move forward, Skerrit and his rouge government must Go.
    Readers, please tell us of any meaningful development you see taking place or has taken place in Dominica that employs our people, the youth? Its just talk,…talk…talk. When will we wake to realised that Dominica is going nowhere with this corrupt labour regime in office.
    Skerrit must Go Now.

    TRAITS OF AN UNTRUSTWORTHY PM…

    His emotional state is volatile, and he has a pattern of inconsistency and fickleness in his decisions. He shows a lack of empathy, breaches confidentiality, projects behaviours on you that are clearly not ones you are exhibiting and lies to himself.

    Now everyone gets side track so easy in Dominica it’s crazy. One person started to vent and everyone went there direction. The PM is asking for the public servant to support (Cread) and is paying attention to that. My question to each and everyone of you is, did you guys hear about that “Cread” before the donors conference ? This guy is doing what ever he wants and then he is asking for support that is crazy!!!

    PM – Where’s the Terms of Reference (ToR) for the Climate Resilience Execution Agency of Dominica ( CREED)?

    The most valuable commercial activity or business commodity is TRUST. To achieve this it requires a unique character trait, around honesty, ambition, hard work and attention to detail. These unique traits are the PM’s worst enemies… so how then will he be able to instil a level of TRUST that will enable him to move forward.

    INTEGRITY impacts all aspects of commercial activity. It is the barometer by which we D/can nationals (home and abroad), lenders (i.e. donors etc) and potential business partners evaluate the PM and our country Political and Economic track record. TRUST in a PM speaks volumes on how a Country services and communicates with its nationals and the World.

    “The Times” front page head line of today reads :” Trump’s mental health questioned by top aide”. I do believe that the same observation may well apply to our own P.M., and I’m not being facetious. Ironically the two know one another, having been introduced by Paolo Sampolli, a known self-promoter and megalomaniac, appointed to our U.N. mission with a diplomatic post by Roosevelt Skerrit and for whom Trump’s present wife used to work as a model.

    How many portfolios and responsibilities can be squeezed into the Office of the Prime Minister before this office becomes burdened, inundated, inefficient and counter-productive? You know Mr PM that diminishing economies of scale begin to set in after an optimum position is reached? Please ask your economic advisers! Are we there yet? Can you imagine a company being run by a CEO who also wants to be the Accountant, Legal Adviser, Buyer, Sales Person, Cashier, Marketing Manager, Customer Service Manager, Logistics Manager, et cetera, et cetera? You would not run your own personal business in this way, so why are you running my country in this way?

    Complain, sit back and do nothing, more complaining and do nothing.
    Why do you take action form a party and throw out the red and the blue? Who is brave enough? No one…
    Since no one is brave enough, let Satan run things or let the demon try to take over.

    This man’s mind is so full of garbage, that his every spoken thoughts are nothing more than garbage! Prior to Maria the word resilient, or “resilience” was not synonymous in Dominica.

    The minute someone mentioned Dominicans as a resilient people, Roosevelt jumped on the bandwagon with this hogwash talk, prior him classified Dominicans as invisible, when someone told him that people are not invincible; nevertheless, are indeed expendable; he shifted, and every second stupid word he spews now is resilient!

    @Dominican January 4, 20 “It would also appear that any funds generated by this CREAD, therefore, are under the direct control of the P.M. also. I find this very worrying”

    You are sounding as if you do not know what is the role of the “Minister of Finance”, but that is also the role of Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit; that is why the things concerning finances of this Creed initiative, must be reported to his office, that is why he holds the office of Minister of Finance.

Nobody to authenticate the veracity of what was said. Thats just so childlike and the orange man in the oval office like. Talk to people with others around, so should the private talker renege you know u have support.

NEPOTISM is all written in CREAD.The continuance of not being open with the Dominican people, might be leading to the many precipice situated on the Island. You are wrong BIGTIME on this one. Is it wright that you should be MINISTER of everything in Domonica? are your ministers aware of the utmost disrespect that you have for them? their timidness, have made them COWARDS, wanting to speak out in some instances, but afraid to.

    Quotes;
    Bill Gates: “As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.”
    Leadership stems from social influence, not authority or power.

    Now that the PM has added yet another role to his burgeoning portfolio, I sometimes wonder if there are any competent Dominicans home or abroad, who could take on some of those responsibilities. I simply cannot understand how someone can be so domineering when they should actually be delegating.

    As for the whole idea of CREAD, I think its it used as a pretext to have so called donors to finance his grip on power. It was only earlier this year that the PM was holding town hall meetings promising heaven and earth to every Dominican. Did building a more resilient Dominica ever cross his mind,I think not.
    All of a sudden he has had a moment of epiphany and it finally dawned on him that Dominica needs to be the first climate resilient country in the world.

    REALLY, NOW WHO BUYS THAT, DO YOU? What does that country…

Maria, a force to be reckoned with, shook us up so badly that we have no choice but to face global warming and reverse it in whatever way possible. Hurricanes are more frequent, they are stronger, the rise in sea levels are alarming, intense flash floods and environmental deterioration limits the natural environment’s services to us. What do we do to prevent that? How do we fix it?

    PM could you share some information on CREAD for the public ? :-D The best way to secure buy-in on a particular concept or branding or initiative is to bring everyone unto a platform of common knowledge – including the General Public. This platform of common knowledge ought to include:

    1) Public document on the Structure and composition of CREAD; by composition I mean sectors and portfolios or expertise represented
    2) Scope of its mandate: mission and vision
    3) scope of stakeholder participation – in this case every citizen is a stakeholder and ought to be enlightened from the onset to mitigate against pushback and in ensuring people understand early the scope and ramification of every decision taken on their behalf. This makes for easy buy-in.
    4) will there be community meetings to address CREAD’s mandate ? that way people will understand the scope and line of engagement in the exchange of suggestions, ideas and recommendations.

    I pray SUCCESS & participation

We are losing our best talents because of who the government keeps placing to manage key aspects of our country. Our progress has been slow over the years in comparison to the other Windward Islands. However, good luck to you and I hope there is some level of accountability and transparency, something this government has fall very short on.

    Is Dominica Skerrit’s country? “I will have portfolio oversight of the CREAD and the CREAD will report to the Prime Minister.” This convinces me that narcissism and Mr. Skerrit are inseparable. A good leader does not stretch himself too thin, he delegates, but put measures in place to ensure efficiency and effectiveness. Dominica needs the collective effort, will power and brains of all its people to be resurrected better than before. Engaging in ‘one-manism’ won’t achieve much. Mr. Skerrit most definitely believes that he is indispensable, the cemetery is full of indispensable people. Engage the Opposition, they have ideas too.

    I was very pleased when I first read about this a few months ago. If we say we want to build a climate resilient country, and the first one at that, we should turn words into action. And that is what Mr. Skerrit did; he mobilized the unit and they are working hard to make this a reality.

    We are situated in the Caribbean, it is the most tourism dependent region on earth, and it is important to note that it is one of the most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. There are 40 climate hot spots, and six caribbean islands have been named including our own. So taking on this task is not just for our betterment, but for that of our region and ultimately the world. We hope other countries can follow suit. In the mean time, ordinary citizens can research and do their part to help themselves, their neighbors, their communities. Hurricane Maria, and her predeccessor Erika showed us first hand what superstorms can do to us, ruin lives and habitats. Let’s work harder and do better!

What did the esteemed Baroness who was appointed to spearhead our international work for pledges achieve. You remember the Morrowcan hotel, where are we with that. The housing revolution which had the supply of 300 homes from Venezuela as a cornerstone. Mercifully we only received 50 or so. Go to Bellevieu Chop in and see what Maria did to them.

    In all due respect honorable Prime Minister; CREAD should be an independent entity. There is no way this entity is going to be fair and balance, we are building resilience on the wrong footing without a proper foundation. So sorry to say.

    Oh yes PM, the support of public servants to CREAD is of great importance. I believe they will see to it that the agency is successful. We all should as citizens of DA, lend support and even a hand to the agency. Climate change does not only affect public officers, it affects all of us, our homes and environments. Now is the time for us to show our support as local and global citizens and fight against climate change.

    Who are the members/officials of this new body? It is already clear that they will report directly to the P.M., and as he stated the cabinet. This is confusing as it infers that the cabinet is the P.M. It would also appear that any funds generated by this CREAD therefore are under the direct control of the P.M. also. I find this very worrying.
