"As we approach the final days in this short campaign, for first parliament of Country St. Maarten it is imperative we embrace commitment, experience and professionalism," remarked Stuart Johnson candidate number seven on the Democratic Party of St. Maarten. Johnson’s platform launched weeks ago focuses on his commitments in Education, Crime, Culture, Youth, Sports and the Environment.
"If all this has been done out of Government, imagine what we can do, together in Government as a united people," remarked Johnson.
Johnson also has launched his redesigned web-site which focuses on the issues and solutions affecting soon to be Country St. Maarten. For further information you may visit his facebook page as well as the campaign web-site which www.wevotingjohnson .com.
As an educator committed to the issue of education, I cannot imagine, why an issue such as the salary scale increase has gone unnoticed by this Government. "I find it a pity after years of hard work and dedication by all teachers, this Government has failed to deliver on the commitment of providing what is rightfully due to teachers this year again," Johnson said. "Are we going to keep waiting for a New beginning, which will never begin?"
Johnson is an educator himself working in the public school system, and called on the Windward Islands Teachers Union to "do the right thing," as the legal entity representing teachers. Questioning the silence of the matter Johnson said, "No stone will be left unturned, as what is due to teachers should be given to them and promptly too." Johnson said in closing, "We’ve got a Country to build, and a people to protect" as we head into our new Country status this should be the motto.
