I have today tendered my letter of resignation from the Peoples Progressive Movement (PPM) to the Political Leader of the PPM and Leader of the Opposition, the Honourable Alden McLaughlin.
Notwithstanding my resignation, I remain fully committed to the political future of the Cayman Islands and in particular the welfare of my constituents in East End. I believe that I still have much to offer my country and will endeavour to continue to contribute in a positive way as a Member of the Legislative Assembly for as long as the people of East End are willing to give me the privilege of serving them.
My decision to resign was not arrived at lightly. While I have noted with some surprise the statements made to the newspaper by Mr. McLaughlin, my departure from the PPM has nothing to do with any decision on my part to further my political fortunes. I have concluded that the important business of the people of East End and the country that remains to be done can best be accomplished independently of the PPM
I look forward to working constructively in the House and elsewhere for the greater good of all who live here.
May God continue to bless and keep us all.
