|Our Parliamentry Rep|
The Hon Lorne Theophilus began his 2014 Christmas Message with this paragraph - "I can hardly believe that another has gone by and that this is the fourth time that I have had the honor of addressing you in my capacity as Parliamentary Representative for Choiseul and Saltibus and the Minister for Tourism Heritage and Creative Industries."
He continued, "The Christmas Season for me means many things. It is a time for introspection and at times solemn reflection on the past year, and with it the various triumphs and attendant challenges."
Weh mesieur! "........time for introspection and solemn reflection..... [on my representation?]" Words in [ ] my own. You bet; he had to do some self examination of his mental and emotional state to come to grips with reality. And yes, he could also not believe that this is the fourth time he has addressed his constituents. Oh how time flies for the non-caring! And solemn reflection? His solemness reflection on the past year, to me, speaks loudly to his failure to connect meaningfully and continuously with most of the communities within his constituency.

However bravo Mr Rep, for the little you have achieved so far. The people can do with it.

This may very well be the Lorne's last Christmas message before elections. It is very likely that after a great budget speech by the PM, come April/May, one may hear of a general election. Has Lorne done enough to stand another chance? Has he given his constituents the quality representation that he promised back in 2011? Most of his supporters will answer in the positive and conversely by those on the other side of the divide. But be warned, this election result rests in the hands of the youth and to a certain extent - the women of this nation.

It is however interesting to read what the Rep said as he did some "introspection and solemn reflection," in his Christmas message. "I look forward to the days that I will spend with my constituents, family and friends and hope that I can bring nothing but cheer and good will during these times and our interactions in the future."
"Choiseul on the Move", and many communities look forward to that day.
