I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of former teacher, sports lady, coach, headmistress and civic leader Anita Doherty. She is a beloved figure in our community across all divides.
I spoke with the leaders of the party this morning and they have asked me to convey the shared sense of loss.
She made immeasurable contributions to Grand Bahama and to Freeport and the wider Bahamas. Many children have passed through her hands and benefitted from her tutelage.
She will be sorely missed.
On behalf of the Leader Hon Philip Brave Davis, our Deputy Chester Cooper, our Chair Fred Mitchell, our officers and the entire parliamentary team, I express our condolences.
May she rest in peace.
