Following this morning’s news regarding the sad passing of Mr James Ronald Webster, HE the Governor, Ms Christina Scott, has issued the following statement:
“Today everyone in Anguilla unites to remember the ‘Father of the Nation’, Mr James Ronald Webster, who has sadly passed away. Mr Webster, Anguilla’s first Chief Minister, played a pivotal role in the revolution, stepping up with courage to lead his people to a brighter, better future. He demonstrated how, through force of character, nations can be formed and grow through peaceful, purposeful actions. That by coming together, and looking to the future with common intent and for the good of all, fairness and opportunity can prevail.
It was a privilege to meet Mr Webster. He told me that countries do not develop people, but that people develop countries. It was a message for all of us. Even in recent years, it was clear he had not lost his passion to see a better Anguilla and retained strong views about where and how we all can, and must, do better.
My thoughts and prayers are with Mrs Webster, his family and friends, and all those who mourn his passing today.”
