I would like to share the following with your reading public:
Charles Maynard was not just the Parl Rep for the Soufriere Constituency, but a Legend.
I was very fortunate to be Maynard’s Campaign manager in the 1995 general elections in Dominica.
Maynard delivered to the people of the Soufriere Constituency in many different ways and in every ministry he held with the Dominica freedom Party.
When Maynard was minister for Health he delivered Health Centers in Pointe Michel, Soufriere, and Scott’s Head.
When he was Minister for Agriculture he delivered significantly help to the farmers in the Soufriere Constituency including an Aloe growing and harvesting business in the Bois Cut Let area.
Maynard also encouraged the local farmers in the area to take farming as a profession and not fun. He also started the School feeding programme for the Scott’s Head Primary School and many other schools on the island.
When he was Minister for Tourism he did so many things in his Constituency including Kone-Konla, put Gallion on the national map, the Encore Project in Soufriere which still bring a significant amount of business in the area and not forgetting the Service of American Eagle to Dominica.
Maynard helped a lot of people personally from his salary including scholarships, pay rent for poor residents and Christmas presents for the least fortunate in the Constituency.
Personally I must say Maynard was a great part of my success.
He was the one who encouraged me to take a job aboard Royal Caribbean cruise line ‘Song of America’ after the UWP form the Government in 1995. Today, I’m a very successful leader wherever I go.
It’s because of Maynard advise I achieved most of my experiences and successes.
And yes, Maynard, I will try do the thing you believe I will be good at which is to represent the People of the Soufriere Constituency in Parliament at the highest honesty and integrity level one day.
On behalf of the Soufriere Constituency, my wife Marianne and kids Maydine, Jeff and Jacques I would like to extend our deepest sympathy to his wife and family.
May his soul rest in Peace!!
