Prime Minister Mia Mottley, while celebrating 30 years in St Michael North East, said yesterday that the last year in the leadership position has been intense.

She was at the time joining the congregation at Grace Hill Moravian Church, Spooners Hill, St Michael, as she marked the anniversary of her nomination for the St Michael North East seat, which she has held since 1994. 

She wished, said Mottley, that she could put more hours into the day because of the range of expectations and needs which continued to be immense and humanly impossible to meet all at once.

“And so you have to make judgement calls to see where the greatest benefit can come . . . . In our case the greatest benefit came from us trying to save the dollar,” she said following the service. (AC)
