We expected that the Hon. Hubert Hughes would tout his record from the nineties and talk about the ADP/AUM collision past success. That's a fair approach and a challenge we were prepared to face.
What we didn't expect, at least not from Rumpus, are the win-at-all-costs tactics we've seen recently. We didn't expect misleading accusations that willfully distort the Hon. Victor F. Banks' record.
We've seen disingenuous baseless attacks and smear tactics turn people off from the political process for too long on Anguilla, and enough is enough. It's time for a new kind of leadership and a new kind of politics in our country.
The AUF supporters - men and women of all ages, races, religions, and backgrounds - have come together around the idea that we are one people, invested in each other and in our common future.
This campaign is about a new generation of leadership today. A generation ready to be part of something bigger than themselves. A generation ready to change the country, and a generation qualified and ready to meet the challenges of tomorrow.
Our work will have a lasting impact on our electorate for a long time to come - people taking back the political process will be apparent in thousands of minds across Anguilla.
I believe more strongly than ever that with the AUF team of professionals - we can do more than just win an election. Together, we can transform Anguilla.
Thank you for your generosity and support.
