Dwight defines his leadership philosophy in the following terms:
โ€œWe are forming government not because of what I or my party has done, but because of what we as Newfoundlanders and Labradorians have done together โ€“ and what we will do. Every day I will consider the input of the more than 500,000 advisors across our province. Every day Iโ€™ll work tirelessly to put their advice into action that will result in a stronger tomorrow and a brighter future for us all.โ€
