National objectives: National Agenda for the country, this could be used is a road map with an out reach of 30 years. This will unified and prioritize our national issues, prioritize and strategize our National Development Plans such as, the Deep water harbor in South Caicos and the construction of an express highway joining the Caicos Islands, this could very well be the main catalyst to a sustainable development in the country; Making amendments to the Reserved Business activities ordinance to provide protection to Turks and Caicos Islanders, as well is adding additional categories of Reserved businesses to the schedule; Enhanting the fishing industry by rotating the Mouchoir bank in tendon with the Turks bank and the Caicos bank. Investing in fish farming, fish feed from byproducts of conch and lobster as well is running (FIP) fisheries improvement programs to improve the reproduction process of conch and lobsters in the wild; The establishment of a special Coast Guard border patrol unit to protect our borders and fishing industry from poachers, drugs smuggling and human trafficking; Legislate Biometrics and Surveillance laws to assist in identifying persons and as well is fighting Crime, especially if the country is going to be physically connected by road structures; The rebirth of the salt industry. Salt is a mineral and all mineral wealth belong to the crown, so this industry can not be privatized or one hundred percent privatized. I do believe that our statutory bodies such as national trust, could help in the management of such operation with the profits going to the National Reserve.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Unable to obtain a scholarship from the ministry of education to further his education and earn a career, Goldray join the work force where he excel when given the opportunity to work for a large cooperation like Shell International Aviation department. This opportunity gave him the chance of a life time to improve himself in every area of the aviation industry. It was indeed a challenging time balancing training and active duty at work, the main reason for this was because he was the Aviation supervisor with no one at the time to supervise, so the daily work load was left to him even on weekends and when he is away on training. But the experience and knowledge gain was like attending a college or university, and in some cases surpassed. Attending seminars and courses in every area of the operation, has prepared him to meet the challenges of today. Goldray eventually became the aviation manager responsible for point of sale for the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos Airports. In 2005 Goldray started his own Aviation fueling company called ACE AVIATION LTD. He was the best at what he do, there was a great demand and business opportunities in the area of Aviation. The company was very successful up to 2008 – 2009 when Aviation policy stop all small and medium size aircrafts from being refuel on the airport main apron. Giving rise to the FBO operation.

Major accomplishments Seven motions and one bill was brought to the house of Assembly, including these two motions that saw some type of action, The suspension of the pelagic fishing study through long line method, and the investigation by a select committee of the House into the TC-Invest none performance loans that was sold to Tolco.
