Dear Editor,

This is an open letter to new G2K president, Floyd Green.

Mr Green, as you take the baton from our immediate past president, Delano Seiveright, as president of Generation 2000 (G2K), we from Generation 2000 West (G2K West) would like to extend to you a heartfelt welcome in your new role.

As the president, you have been gifted with the charge of charting a new course and direction as a new political thinker in the 21st century. In keeping with our motto, "More than just politics", let us get out there, spread our wings like an eagle to bring about change to our educational, economic, health and human services, to bring about a better Jamaica, one befitting Vision 2030.

Collectively, we all have to do our part as it cannot be done by any one individual, so Mr President, I charge you to call upon us from time to time to help chart this course of change. I stand ready, available and able to assist in this venture that will move us forward into a new direction with you leading the way. If this was a race, we would consider you the starting leg of a relay team.

As with a relay race it is a team effort and if one leg fails the entire team fails, and we are not about to fail in making a positive impact on the Jamaican landscape. We are not only out to be just another pretty or handsome face in the crowd or part of a group that seemingly fights for political spoils and scarce benefits, but rather a group of young people aiming to see positive changes in our country that will be beneficial to all on our beautiful little island.

Mr Green, I am sure you are aware that if this was a marriage it is a working one, so there is no time for a honeymoon. Therefore, come tomorrow morning you must revisit your short, medium and long-term plans and goals that you envision for Generation 2000. To address the team that surrounds you, "I say that a leader is only as effective and good as the people that surround him and offer their services," so I want to ask that they all support you as president.

During your tenure I am quite sure that all members of Generation 2000 West are willing and ready to give you full support as you serve. We also want to say congratulations and God speed in your new role, but most important, the work must be done and we all have to get in and be like an ant in this endeavour.

To Delano Seiveright, I say, job well done and whatever new task is bestowed upon you, I extend to you my full support.

Wayne White

G2K West Member
