I am happy to serve the fine Jamaicans who want Jamaica to be their place of choice to live, work, study, and raise families.

I also see Eastern St. Andrew as a part of Jamaica’s legacy of Nation-Building. It was the Constituency of our Nation-Builder and national hero, Norman Washington Manley.

Manley who insisted on having annual Sectoral Debates so that every Member of Parliament could have the opportunity to give an account to the country of his/her stewardship of the constituency they represent.

With that said, Mr. Speaker, I want to thank the electors of Eastern St. Andrew who have afforded me this opportunity to represent them.
