A BETTER ST LUCIA
Dr James L. Fletcher, known to most as Jimmy Fletcher, is the standout Minister of the previous government. Dr Fletcher headed two important Ministries in Saint Lucia between 2011 and 2016: the Ministry of Sustainable Development, Energy, Science and Technology and the Ministry of Public Service, Information and Broadcasting, He is more widely known nationally, regionally and internationally for his work in Climate Change. Dr. Fletcher has proven himself a hard worker, a man with the interest of Saint Lucia sustainable development at heart.
With the election of a new set of men and women to govern, does it mean that Saint Lucia must accept the same recycled modus operandi of discontinuing good work which had started by the previous administration? Dr Fletcher is admired regionally and internationally and his stellar leadership and work on behalf of Saint Lucia and CARICOM cannot be ignored and thrown away because yellow is the new colour of the day.
We talk about unity and beginning anew. We are now presented with an opportunity for all Saint Lucians to show that we are more than just party colours. We are Saint Lucians ‘Helen of the West”: Iyanola.
A man for climate change. A man for energy efficiency. A man for promotion of renewable energy. A man for water resources. A man for a clean environment and the conservation of our natural habitats. A man for technological advancements and innovation. A MAN FOR A BETTER SAINT LUCIA.
