My appearance on ZJB Radio yesterday on the Breakfast Show was not to provoke discord, nor was it to give the impression of fragmentation with our PDM party. That is far from the reality.
I merely attempted to make a statement to my supporters to clear the air that I did not refuse a Ministry as was being rumoured, as my supporters felt I had let them down by not taking a Ministry. This was not fact, and having gotten the confidence of the voters via my election to office, I felt it necessary to address them.
I was disappointed having not receiving an appointment to the Ministry of Health, and perhaps my language expressed this disappointment too blatantly. However, I can assure all concerned that I am a committed member of the PDM Party. I stand ready to assist the party to advance our agenda of people first as we seek to rebuild what has been broken in our country for too long.
Additionally, I wish to emphatically deny the stated conversation developing that I am seeking to form an alliance with former Premier Reuben T Meade. This is false.
I remain a PDM elected representative and my desire is to remain this way and serve the people of Montserrat under the PDM banner.
