Mr. Speaker, as I rise to mark my name in the hallowed halls of this Parliament, halls that have heard the passion of Bustamante, the insight of Sangster, the vision of Manley, and the sheer nation-building brilliance of Seaga,I am humbled by such a great honour.
None of this would have been possible without the people of South West St. Elizabeth who have put their faith and confidence in me to come to this House to represent, above all, theirinterest in this drive to create prosperous communities which in turn will lead to a prosperous nation.
I thank all the workers, my executive,my divisional chair and my management team, Councillor Jeremy Palmer, Councillor Derrick Sangster, Miss Withney Smith and Dr. AdeyniBamidele, my Vice Chairman Krishan James, Jennifer Mullings, Marcine
Witter, Edward Muir, Jodian Jones and countless others whose names time does not permit me to mention.
The foundation, however, Mr. Speaker was set by my mother, an educator of over 36 years’ service and my father, an agricultural officer, who has served the people of Jamaica and the Cayman Islands for almost 40 years. I thank them for their guidance and never ending encouragement.
I acknowledge the support of my family including Mrs. Trisha Williams-Singh, my partner, Kerida and my son Nathaniel Marcus. They have borne the burden of the sacrifice in this life that we call politics and I am grateful for their patience.
