Statement in support of Camillo Gonsalves’ parliamentary campaign
As an elected parliamentarian, Camillo Gonsalves will bring to that public responsibility an already outstanding record of public service on behalf of the Vincentian people at home and abroad. Prior to his appointment as Minister of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade, Commerce and Information Technology, he had served with distinction for nearly half a dozen years as our Permanent Representative to the United Nations. “Who is this young, impressive, bright man?â was the refraining question asked about Camillo by senior diplomats at the UN. I myself have interacted with Camillo in New York on many occasions in his capacity as UN ambassador and I have always been impressed by his depth of knowledge, his command of the issues and above all, his passion to serve the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
With young leaders like Camillo, our future as a nation will be secure. As a native of Calliaqua, I am proud to support his candidacy and I urge the good people of East St. George to join me in making Camillo Gonsalves our next representative in parliament. He will make us proud.â
