Government Says Thanks To Kim George For Serving In The Senate

PR – The Government of Grenada is expressing gratitude to former senator, Kim George who recently tendered her resignation from the Upper House of Parliament.

A Government representative in the Senate since March 2018, Ms. George has resigned due to the great demands of her profession and senate preparation.

Prime Minister, Dr. the Right Honourable Keith Mitchell said, “We are grateful for her valuable contribution to the discourse at the national level. Ms. George brought a great level of maturity and balance to the debates in the Senate. Her contributions will be sorely missed but we understand that with her career demands as a lawyer and her active role in senatorial discussions, she no longer feels capable of giving 100% to both. We appreciate her years of service and wish her the very best as she focuses on growing her private practice.”

Government has not yet identified another representative. However, when this is given consideration, the person will be someone who can contribute positively to the national conversation.

There are 13 members in Grenada’s Senate, seven of whom are appointed on the advice of the Prime Minister, three on the advice of the Leader of the Opposition and the remaining three on the advice of the Prime Minister having consulted with organisations that he considers the senators should represent.
