Peter David is a tireless defender of the rights of citizens, even those who have made mistakes. He is appalled at the unnecessary suffering of people who have God-given, constitutional and internationally agreed human rights. In his work, he is constantly meeting clients and people from St. George and all over Grenada, who are at risk because of three simple problems:
- Little or no access to decent and relevant education
- The lack of recreational facilities for communities
Peter believes that these problems can easily be solved by honest, caring, competent and committed political leaders. Since the ideologically charged, post-independence era, the world has changed and so has the thinking of committed change agents. For him, change is more effective and sustainable when people are empowered and democratic institutions strengthened. It is for this reason that he joined the National Democratic Congress under the enlightened leadership of the statesman, the Honourable Tillman Thomas.
Peter is well equipped to take a leadership role in the new Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. Having received his secondary education at the Grenada Boys Secondary School, he went on to study at Carleton University in Canada and Essex University in England. He now works as an Attorney-at-Law. Throughout his career he has always put people first, particularly the urban poor and those who have been cast aside by rural neglect and decay. He is anxious to be part of a reinvigorated NDC Government that has these issues at the top of its priority list.
Peter believes that the time has come for Grenada to wake up. Successive NNP Governments have used scare tactics to manipulate the electorate. People must realize that in the 21st century nations can no longer be held hostage. Legislation, international conventions and strong democratic institutions are there to protect citizens’ rights. The NDC and its leaders are committed to putting measures in place to bring about reconciliation and move on.
Peter is a dedicated change agent and has pursued this path at considerable sacrifice to his personal and social life. He is the father of four children to whom he wants to bequeath a better and gentler Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. He is adamant that we owe it to our children and our children’s children to create the conditions for them to realize their potential in their own country.
