I consider myself as a champion for better government and meaningful participation of people in the decisions that affect their lives. I believe that the tremendous genius that exists in the collective wisdom of our people can result in greater prosperity for our nation.
I have served in various capacities of the trade union movement including President of the Public Service Union and the Caribbean Public Service Association. I also served as a director of the Human Rights Commission and the National Trade Union Congress of Belize. In these capacities I traveled across many regions of the world to address workers issues and human rights.
