MP Rolando Brison resigns from USP

Rolando Brison MPPHILIPSBURG -- Member of Parliament and Faction Leader of the United St. Maarten Party (USP) Rolando Brison on Monday evening resigned from the USP.

Brison informed party President Agnes Brooks and party leader Frans Richardson of his decision:

Dear Madame President,

I regret to inform you that I must tender my resignation from the United St. Maarten Party. I'm proud of what has been accomplished and I deeply appreciate the trust you've placed in me. It has been a privilege.

Though this is a very difficult decision and through no lack of effort by my person, I no longer see myself as a core factor in determining a clear direction for the USP, in line with my core values and ethical responsibilities.

With the confidence placed in me by the people of St. Maarten, I intend to move on to other opportunities which will hopefully allow me to continue to serve the public in the same manner as an MP.

So it is with great gratitude, and a little bit of sorrow, that I must resign from the party. I wish you, the membership and board of the USP good fortune and blessings.

“I would like the public to know that I fully intend to support the incoming government and continue doing what I love to do, serve the people of St. Maarten with effective work and action from Parliament. I will take the next few days to explore my options for the elections and update the public accordingly,” MP Brison said concluding his statement.

Earlier in the evening, Brison announced in a post on his Facebook page that "Indeed regretably I have resigned from USP. Please believe that this is in the best interest of my ability to serve you."

He continued to state that "To be clear this has no effect on government at all. I am still FULLY in support of the coalition of 9."

Brison subsequently announced that he would have a Livestream tomorrow at 10am. and conveyed his thanks to everyone for the support.
