Vanessa Retreage, Attorney General/Minister of Lands

“I first wish to start by expressing my sincerest thanks to the Prime Minister and his Cabinet for having the confidence in me and allowing me to serve for the year that I have served.  With that said, I read with amazement some of the posts on Facebook and there are screen-shotting and sending to me because everybody who knows me knows that I do not have Facebook, about all the reasons why I am resigning or not resigning but time is up.  Sadly it’s only because time is up and I can’t confirm any of the juicy gossip that has been going around.  So I won’t say much on that score.  I only want to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to the staff at the Attorney General’s ministry, as well as the staff at the Ministry of Natural Resources.  There has been much said all the time about the performance of those staff members, especially at the Natural Resources Ministry, but the staff there is competent and able to perform their functions and has expressed their willingness and has expressed their willingness to do so.  Change is always tough and they have demonstrated a commitment to changing the way things get done and I am grateful, eternally grateful that they have supported me in everything, even at times when it created significant pressure on them.  They performed under great pressure.  I don’t have much else to except thank you to the Belizean people, my family who has been extremely supportive and I look forward to serving my country in other ways and I remain committed to this U.D.P. administration.”
