GREAT BAY – Governor Drs. Eugène Holiday administered the oath of office yesterday morning to Mellissa Arrindell-Doncher as Minister of Tourism, Economic Affairs, Transport and Telecommunication (see photo). The Council of Ministers is now complete with seven members.
Governor Holiday stated that the new minister has accepted to serve in challenging economic times, when there is much to do and much debate about the state and vision for our tourism based economy. The governor therefore recommended that the minister when deliberating taking action use the oath as a guide to develop opportunities to realize the aspirations of the people.
Governor Holiday congratulated Minister Arrindell-Doncher and wished her strength and wisdom in the performance of her responsibilities as she seeks to meet her constitutional responsibility to the people of Sint Maarten.
