Restructuring For Growth With Equity


Madam Speaker, I start my presentation by giving thanks to the Almighty for continuing to bless me with health and strength to carry out my responsibilities in this House. I am forever grateful to the constituents of South East St. Andrew who have sent me here for the third time to continue to represent their interests. I will do so with integrity, dignity and accountability.

The constituency has a dedicated team of workers led by Councillor Andrew Swaby, Councillor Candidate Jesse James Clarke, secretary Ivy Hill, organiser Sonia Forbes and a host of other volunteers who give yeoman’s service behind the scenes and, in most cases, unrecognised. I thank them too. I also want to thank my CPO and driver for their work and service.

I want to thank our new Party President and Opposition Leader Mark Golding for entrusting me with this responsibility and to my colleagues in the House and the Party and for their continued guidance and support. I also acknowledge former Opposition Leader Dr. Peter Phillips, who started the “good policies” as Minister of Finance in 2012 and laid the foundation for the economic stability that the country experiences.

Madam Speaker, I wish to thank my wife and children and the rest of my family for their unconditional love, for always having my back and supporting me in all my endeavours.
