Books about Anguilla

Your generosity is what will make it possible to mount a winning campaign. For that, we cannot thank you enough. Thank you for taking the most extraordinary and deeply humbling result - you have taken ownership of this campaign in numbers that are bigger than a thunderclap over the political process.

It means our campaign has more supporters than any campaign in history at this point in an election, and it’s a wake-up call to our current politics and the wishful thinking need-to-be-out-of-commission-loose-cannons – the convergence of confusion.

While our opponents are in opposition to gratitude and success, and are competing with each other to join the “Front’s lineup” - we’ve demonstrated that we’ve defied the pundits’ expectations and turned the political process on its head - now it’s time to build on our milestones of success.

It means ordinary people are coming together in unprecedented numbers to be counted for continued economic growth, tranquility, stability and prosperity – a reflection of good governance on Anguilla.

It means you are defying the influence-peddlers and the visionless opposition, rejecting their cynicism and negativity, and embracing the hope and confidence that the Anguilla United Front (AUF) Administration is a united team of professionals that you can trust to take us forward and continue changing things for the better.

It means we are building a movement so big, so deep, and so personal that the collective silent voices are undeniable – the silent stories that ring true with passion and a hunger for continuity – that the stakes are too high and will not be auctioned to a set of vile bidders.

But even though so many of us share a common goal, our success is not inevitable. While everyone is marveling at our numbers and patting us on the back, we need to continue focusing on building and organizing from the grassroots up. We know that working together with a common purpose can continue transforming communities; and the same is true for our country.

We need to continue reaching out to our friends, family, colleagues, and neighbors; to identify our common ground and work together for the common good.

With the solidarity of a well organized movement of volunteers working with us – we thank you for your generosity and support. It’s impressive and inspiring, but we have a few weeks more to go.
