Curtis is an interesting case. He is a teacher and the son of former Hubert supporter, Pastor Ambrose. He ran as an unsuccessful candidate for Eddie Baird’s party in South Hill against Hubert Hughes. He was not a candidate for the ruling party, the United Front. After the elections, he joined the government and accepted the post of Press Officer attached to the Chief Minister’s office.
It is not certain what role he actually fills. It is not a civil service appointment. The only photograph of him that appears to have been published on the web is the one on the left. He does not seem to have set off any fireworks of light or splendour in performing his assigned role of press officer for the government.
It is likely that he expects that he is being kept warm and being groomed to run as a candidate for the United Front in the next elections in Blowing Point against opposition member Hubert Hughes. If so, that may not be the best qualification to be a press officer or PRO guru.
I am still investigating the circumstances in which he came to leave the High School.
