Emil Lee’s resignation from the presidency at the St. Maarten Hospitality and Trade Association is a wonderful example of transparency.
The SHTA has always been non-political and from his position as president Lee has for thirteen years been able to guide the organization’s stance on matters that affect the local economy.
Now that apparently several parties are knocking on his door to become a candidate in the upcoming elections, Lee considers the discussions with his political suitors reason enough to vacate his seat at the SHTA.
That is a commendable approach. Politicians and those aspiring to become one ought to take this to heart.
