POINT Fortin Mayor Saleema Thomas has extended condolences on the passing of former Member of Parliament for La Brea, Fitzgerald Jeffrey.
Jeffrey died on Saturday at age 69 following a long battle with a lung disease.
Thomas stated, “On behalf of the members of the Point Fortin Borough Council, I extend heartfelt condolences on the passing of former Government Minister, Ambassador and Member of Parliament for La Brea, Fitzgerald Jeffrey.
“His dedicated work and concern for the Constituents of La Brea along with those he interacted with as an educator, was surely one to have left an indelible mark in their hearts and minds. His service to country, was exemplified in his role and contribution over the years under the People’s National Movement. We offer our sincerest thoughts of comfort to his family, friends and colleagues during this time of mourning.”
Jeffrey was very close friends with another long standing PNM member, Franklin Khan who had also extended condolences.
