Resignation as Senator and Deputy Speaker of the House of Assembly

STATEMENT TO THE MEDIA

On December 29, 2015 I was appointed Senator and Deputy Speaker of the House Assembly.  I approached this challenge with a single purpose – to serve the people of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

Today, I formally announce that my tenure as Senator and Deputy Speaker of the House of Assembly has come to an end. On March 18, 2020 I formally tendered my resignation as Senator and Deputy Speaker of the House of Assembly, effective March 20, to the Governor General, Her Excellency Dame Susan Dougan and the Clerk of the House of Assembly.

It has indeed been a distinct honour to serve the people of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines over the last four years and to have supported our government’s quest towards the continued development of our country through the strengthening of our legislature.

I extend gratitude to the Prime Minister, Dr. the Honourable Ralph E. Gonsalves for affording me the opportunity to be of service to our nation in my former capacity of Senator and Deputy Speaker.

Further, I wish to take this opportunity to thank parliamentary colleagues, friends and family, especially the wonderful people of North Leeward, for their unwavering support. I remain committed to our cause for a better North Leeward and resolute in my commitment towards nation building.

I will now place an even greater focus and amplification of my service to you the people of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.  Thank you for your continued support and prayers.
