I’d like to thank the Executive, Delegates, Members, Parliamentary and Senate Colleagues for the support demonstrated after last night’s debate.

Since this campaign started, I’ve committed to running a clean campaign and have condemned all efforts to divide our Party.

Whoever earns the support of the delegates will have to unify our Party. Dirty tricks and personal attacks make that task harder for all of us.

At this time, we must put the long-term health and unity of our team over personal ambition or personality.

Each of us who join the PLP recognize the legacy we embrace and all of us in some way pay the price for aligning ourselves with this great organization.

I believe that every Progressive Labour Party Member has value, has something to offer and should be included whether they joined 40 years ago or 40 weeks ago.

I believe in leadership that is honest, inclusive, humble, and focused on “we” rather than “I.” Leadership that does not make excuses and does not try to duck responsibility.

Our Party and our country need change and I hope that with your support and with a unified Party, we can all be agents of change.
