Chairman of the governing Jamaica Labour Party (JLP), Robert Montague, says the JLP welcomes the decision by Councillor for the Trafalgar Division, Kari Douglas, to cross the floor of the Kingston and St. Andrew Municipal Council (KSAMC) and join the ranks of the JLP.
Mr. Montague says it’s always good and encouraging when citizens of Jamaica, are attracted by the JLP’s vision of working hard towards prosperity for all.
Mr. Montague says Councillor Douglas is a talented Jamaican who has much to offer to the JLP and the country and applauds her as the first of a cohort which has indicated willingness to join the ranks of the JLP.
JLP General Secretary Dr. Horace Chang is also welcoming Councillor Douglas. Dr. Chang says it’s instructive that Councillor Douglas in her statement noted that many of the younger cohort of the electorate are persuaded to assist Prime Minister Holness and the JLP in the vision to develop and execute policies that are beneficial to the people of Jamaica.
Dr Chang continued, “in spite of challenges and constant Scrutiny politics remains the highest form of public service and the JLP respects and welcomes young Jamaicans who wish to work within our Party to provide public service to Jamaica.”
