When representative of the Ninth Electoral District Dr Hubert O’Neal recently made a brief comment that Myron Walwyn is the best performing Government minister, it did not grab the headlines.
But, to make sure enough people hear how he feels about the minister, Dr O’Neal repeated his perspective to a much larger audience at the opening of the Easter festival in Virgin Gorda on the weekend.
Walwyn, who is the minister of education and culture, was in earshot soaking up the compliment.
“I would also like to thank the Ministry of Education and Culture – particularly my minister Myron Walwyn. As I said before, he is the hardest working minister in this government, and he has culture at his heart, and he expresses it all the time,” Dr O’Neal said.
He added that Walwyn has contributed significantly towards this year’s festivities marking the 50th anniversary of the Virgin Gorda Easter Festival Committee.
“He has put in so much effort knowing that we are now celebrating our fiftieth year here on Virgin Gorda. He has gone the extra mile and he has done what was necessary to make this a successful festival. I want to thank him very much for his diligence,” added Dr O’Neal.
It is not the first time that Walwyn has been at the receiving end of such complimentary remarks by a sitting representative of the Ninth Electoral District.
Back in 2015, the then outgoing representative Ralph O’Neal also lauded the culture minister during the opening of the Easter festivities in Virgin Gorda.
“I have a nickname for him..I call him DIN (Do It Now) and he is doing it now,” Ralph O’Neal told residents two years ago. He, at the time, added, “The honourable minister of education and culture is working hard on the basketball court. He has shown great interest in his job of education and culture. I thank him for what he is doing, and hope he will continue.”
