NASSAU, BAHAMAS – The now former Transport and Housing Minister JoBeth Coleby-Davis didn’t hold back about her second year in office. In fact, she described it as one of the most challenging.

And with so much on her plate, I asked simply how was she managing. 

Although, touchy and often taboo, those in government must also be concerned about mental health. She was candid when I raised the question.

Coleby-Davis first served as a senator in opposition under the last administration. Even with the political experience under her belt, two years ago she entered government as a novice minister. She admits, it’s been a roller-coaster of highs and the lows.

Often outspoken and even controversial, she continues to be a formidable figure in the Cabinet and throughout government. Her tenure, a lesson for other women seeking a place in front-line politics.

The September 4th Cabinet shuffle has put Jobeth Coleby-Davis in charge of new ministry of energy while retaining transport – a portion of her previous portfolio.
