Legislative Daniel Gibbs The Experienced Candidate Saint Martin

Stripped of his chair as president of the Collectivity of Saint-Martin, Daniel Gibbs is presenting his candidacy for the legislative elections of June 11 and 18 in order to offer himself a new mandate as deputy after that carried out between 2012 and 2017. Without the support of his party, Les Républicains, which follows the outgoing deputy, Claire Guion-Firmin. Maintenance.

What motivated your application?
First, I am coming out of a Territorial mandate and I am counting a five-year experience which was preceded by five years as the first member of our unique constituency. I intend to remain at the service of our populations reinforced by this capitalization of experiences. When I was a member of parliament, I started to put measures in place. But, you know, there is always and still a lot to do. I had a mandate as President of the Collectivité that was both complicated and rewarding in terms of crisis management, particularly with Irma, the Covid and social tensions, but these are additional experiences. We have two young local authorities that have evolved within article 74 of the Constitution, with an organic law that can be improved and that can be upgraded. So there is still work

What makes you a better candidate than the other five contenders?
I think evidence of experience often makes the difference. The experience and the implication on the files. I worked on social security and I was rapporteur for a text on which I worked with Michel Magras (then senator for Saint-Barth), I managed to establish police cooperation with Sint-Maarten as well as than a chamber detached from the court in Saint-Martin, in particular.

What are the challenges for the next term?
In Saint-Barth, I am thinking of the improvement of health services and national education, which is a priority for the population. I will also ensure that tax status is preserved. As a general rule, it is necessary to make the difference between sovereign powers, which are those of the State, and those of the Communities. Our islands need consultation on many issues. The fight against the high cost of living is one of them, as is the question of free choice in terms of vaccination.

You have chosen Thomas Gréaux, president of the Cem of Saint-Barth, as a substitute. Why ?
I met everyone because I wanted to unite, not divide. Especially after Territory Battles. Thomas Gréaux is very invested in the economic sphere and he has the necessary dynamism to replace me on the territory of Saint-Barth. We need to have continuity in our actions and I am convinced that it will be unanimous within all the formations. I position myself above political divisions because I believe that we must all push in the same direction. Our territories are too small and vulnerable to function otherwise.

This Wednesday, May 25 at 6 p.m., Daniel Gibbs and Thomas Gréaux are hosting a public meeting at the harbor master’s office of Gustavia, in Saint-Barthélemy.
