Opening Remarks at Monthly Press Conference
Tuesday, 7th August 2018
Good Morning Members of the Press as well as party supporters.
Thank you for coming!
I want to begin by reminding each of you to continue to keep the Hon. Melanie Griffin and her family in our prayers on the passing of her mother, Mrs. Telator Strachan, a Stalwart Councillor, civic activist, friend, member and supporter of the progressive cause. On behalf of my wife Anne-Marie our entire executive team of the PLP, all members and supporters nationwide, I extend condolences to the family. There will be a Memorial Service for the late Mrs. Strachan here at Party Headquarters on 10th August.
Other parliamentary colleagues, friends and supporters of the progressive cause who have also passed are former parliamentarian Phenton Neymour and former Bahamasair Chairman Basil Sands. We are thankful for their public service and may all of their souls rest in peace.
