We are saddened by the statement today that Picewell Forbes MP will not offer for the House of Assembly again. We had hoped to see him serve in the Cabinet one day.
I hope we can continue to work together to ensure that the PLP retains the seat in the next general election and continue on its mission to make The Bahamas a better place for all.
I ask our dear supporters in South and Central Andros and Mangrove Cay and indeed throughout The Bahamas to join me in extending a hand of thanks and gratitude for his service to the party and country. Let us not be distracted by mischief-making from the FNM Chairman and others.
On a personal note, I enjoyed the camaraderie and fellowship I have had in our Parliamentary caucus with Picewell Forbes. I will miss this. I look forward to the remaining days in the House.
Let us all commit to working together on the way forward. We thank our member, his wife and children for all that he and they have done for us and wish them many blessings for his future.
The PLP remains a great and good organization, readying itself once again for government.
