Dennery North MP Shawn Edward has expressed gratitude to the people of his constituency for placing their confidence in him to represent them as he observed the fourth year of his current term in office.
“This has proven to be a strong and formidable partnership for the betterment of the valley,” Edward said in a message posted on the official Facebook page of the opposition Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP).
“Today Saturday June 6th, marks exactly 4 years since you, the people of Dennery North, reposed your confidence in my ability to represent your interests in the Parliament of Saint Lucia. Thank you immensely for the opportunity to serve. Thank you for voting for me and the Saint Lucia Labour Party. I look forward to our next victory at the polls later this year or early 2021,” the MP stated.
He recalled that the people of Dennery North first voted for him in the general elections of 2011.
According to Edward, in 2016 they renewed their confidence in his ability to represent their interests in parliament and in the wider scheme of government.
“Together we have achieved a lot and all of what has been achieved is as a result of this formidable partnership that I have been able to forge with you,” the Dennery North MP explained.
“I enjoy working with and for you. I have always taken the role of parliamentary representative very, very seriously. It is an honour that you have given to me and it is one that I cherish tremendously. Today, Saturday June 6, marks exactly four years since you voted for me for a second time and I want to take the opportunity to place on record how grateful I am for that opportunity you gave so that I can serve on your behalf,” Edward stated.
“Together we have achieved a lot, together we have struggled, together we have overcome and I believe that our work in this valley is not done. And it is for this reason I am asking you that with elections on the horizon and whether the Prime Minister chooses to call it this year or next year, I want to let you know that I am available to continue leading that charge in the parliament and in government for you – the people of Dennery North,” the MP declared.
