Curtis Dickinson has handed in his resignation as finance minister just weeks before the 2022 Annual Budget.
“I have today reluctantly accepted the resignation of the Hon. Curtis L. Dickinson, JP, MP, as Minister of Finance. Bermuda has been well served by Minister Dickinson’s steady and thoughtful hand at the helm of the Government’s finances and fiscal strategy.
Minister Dickinson led the financial support response to the pandemic and invested tremendous personal energy and commitment to ensure that the needs of the Island’s workforce were met as people were impacted by the necessary strict public health measures.
“Personally, I know the immense toll that an individual’s public service takes on families and in thanking Curtis for his service I must also recognize the sacrifice of his wife and children during this unprecedented period of economic strain for Bermuda.
I cannot thank Curtis enough for all that he has done as Bermuda’s Minister of Finance and will continue to support him as the representative of Constituency 21 and will value his advice and contributions from the backbench.”
TNN understands the resignation of Finance Minister Dickinson comes amidst a level of discontent within the Ministry and specifically with the Finance Minister over the impending decision to support or not to support the backing of policy struck legislation for the refurbishment of the Southampton Princess Hotel.
TNN was made to understand that former Minister Dickinson was not in support of any major decision that would make the government liable for any backing of funding the Southampton Princess Hotel
