Danville Walker -- our most famous returnee
Danville Walker is perhaps the finest example of someone who has moved back to Jamaica.
As the former Director of Elections, he was appointed during the PNP administration, enjoyed the confidence of the JLP, and brought a level of excellence to our electoral process that has resulted in it becoming a model for other countries.
I can share from personal experience from voting in the U.S. and Jamaica that our system on the island is a much more thorough one. This is far cry from the days when voting in some constituencies exceeded 100%, and the bogus voting I witnessed as a CAFFE observer in the late 1990's.
He and his colleagues at the EOJ have simply engineered a miracle.
It is a fine example of what most Jamaicans abroad aspire to do "someday":
1. develop a critical skill abroad
2. bring it home
3. use it to make a contribution
4. be acknowledged
The remittances currently that prop up the Jamaican economy are merely a proxy for this kind of substantial contribution.
Hats off to the man, and the way that he came home to work on behalf of his countrymen. Most agree that we want more men and women like him in political office.
