I want to sincerely thank all the delegates who voted today.
This campaign has been extraordinary for me. And I have loved every moment of the journey. Walking with you and talking with you.
I’ve called Comrade Mark Golding and congratulated him on his victory. I committed my continued service and support to Party, and to him as our new Leader.
We have much work to do, and must come together in Love, and choose unity.
To my indefatigable Campaign Team - and Comrades in arms that worked tirelessly to bring us together and make this campaign possible across the length and breath of Jamaica. Thank you for everything you have done.
To my family with their love and support I have walked through countless fires with you - To my wonderful husband Richard, and my son Alex, thank you for standing by my side every step of the way.
And, as I speak about family, I must of course say a special thanks also to my SESA family. I thank you for your support. I thank you for your love, and I thank you for the lessons you have taught me in the 13 years I have been privileged to represent you.
Here’s to New Beginnings ...
Thank you! Let’s continue to #BringBackDiLove in our Party and country.
- Lisa Hanna
