The Management Committee of the United Workers Party (UWP), at its Management meeting on Monday, September 1, mourned the passing of former Senator and Speaker of the House, Swanston Carbon.
Speaking on behalf of all the candidates, executive, members and supporters of Team Dominica, political leader, Lennox Linton, made this announcement:
“The United Workers Party TEAM Dominica is truly saddened by the death of former Senator and businessman Swanston Carbon. News of the tragic passing, on Sunday 31st August, of this well known patriot, politician, husband and father came as a complete shock and has left Dominica with a great sense of loss.
On behalf of all the Candidates, Executive, members and supporters of Team Dominica, I wish to offer our deepest condolences to his wife, his children, other members of his family and the members of the Dominica Freedom Party with whom he served in the nation’s political life for more than thirty years.
As a Political Analyst and social commentator, the clarity of his ‘solutions oriented’ thinking in public discussions on the Constitutional rule of law and the economy of Dominica in particularly, was exemplary.
In the continuing National conversation for better public understanding of important national development issues, the citizens of Dominica will miss Senator Carbon’s balanced voice of understanding, reason and wisdom.”
“A loved one’s passing is never easy. Our thoughts and prayers are with the relatives, friends and close associates of Swanston Carbon in this time of sorrow. May those who mourn his loss across the land find comfort in loving memories of his life and times.
We trust that members of his immediate family will be forever mindful of the fact that they are surrounded by the love of many. We ask them to let patience be upon them and to allow the abiding love for this true champion of freedom and democracy to lift them up in this time of grief. Swanston Carbon has found eternal rest. His soul is now at peace.”
