Philipsburg — Michael Granger is StMaartenNews.com’s choice for Person of the Year. No one has helped make more headlines in 2017 than Michael Granger in his role of PR & Communication Officer for the Ministry of TEATT headed by the Honourable Melissa Arrindell-Doncher.

Every minister’s office, especially the Prime Minister’s cabinet, should have a capable and a competent spokesperson or communications officer so that the media can be adequately informed and kept up to date in a timely fashion on matters regarding the ministry.

The media and the general public are the big winners when a ministry disseminates information via press releases and public announcements. At his own count, Michael Granger issued on average three press releases a week for his ministry. This goes a long way in strengthening the image of the minister in charge as an effective leader.

The cover on Michael Granger’s Facebook page reads and we quote: “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” A quotation taken from John Quincy Adams.

Actions speak louder than words but words telling the story of those actions is what makes people know about the existence and the deeds of such a leader. We commend Michael Granger in effectively using words to communicate the actions of his minister, the honourable Melissa Arrindell-Doncher.
