Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I'd like to thank the residents of the Nahendeh riding for giving me the privilege of representing them for the past four years. I am and always will be humbled for being elected to this job. It is about the people. I am representing their voice and their ideas.
To the community and regional leadership, these past four years, I enjoyed your honesty and frankness as we tried to address concerns and issues with the GNWT, federal government, or others. I would like to thank you for opening your homes, offices, and community to me as we work for the residents of Nahendeh.
To the Nahendeh residents, thank you for trusting me to address your issues. I am honoured you feel comfortable to reach out to me at any time during the day to discuss your issues.
It wasn't about trying to get the issues completely addressed, but being successful to help the residents move forward.
I would like to thank those who were my sounding board and advisers. I appreciate the time and direction you offered throughout these four years. Your ideas and concerns help me do my job better.
To my constituent assistants, I would like to thank them, it was Pearl Norwegian, Mary Drake, Maja Echtay, Deborah Richards, and Charles Blondin, for doing a great job running the Nahendeh office. Their commitment and professionalism were a great asset to the residents and myself. They were the first face you saw, and they were always making people feel comfortable to come in and share their concerns. I could not have been as effective without them.
To my colleagues of the 18th Assembly, I'd like to thank you for all your help as we move forward to a better NWT. I know there were times when we didn't agree;, however, this is what makes life better. We have to work together to get things done. We should all be proud of the work done during this Assembly.
To the unsung heroes of the GNWT, thank you for all the work you do for the residents of the NWT. Sometimes, it's hard, but you do a job well done with professionalism. I appreciate the important work you do for the residents. Sometimes, we don't say it enough, but thank you. Mr. Speaker, I'd like unanimous consent to conclude by statement. Thank you.
