I just wanted to offer my congratulations to the new Chairman of the PLP, Mr. Anthony Santucci. Mr. Santucci takes over from Mr. David Burt who announced his intentions to resign the post earlier in the year. Mr. Santucci has held various positions in the Party prior, most recently having been elected to the Party Executive responsibly for membership, as well as the branch chair or Constituency 27 (Warwick North Central).
I have always found Mr. Santucci approachable, willing to take the time to listen and answer questions. I have no complaints about his term as Membership Secretary, where it is my impression that he has greatly modernised the membership system. I am confident that he will execute his new role as Party Chairman equally well, and I look forward to his term.
