Elshot wants continuity for teachers union

POSTED: 10/19/12 11:44 AM

St. Maarten – One of the reasons for the president of the Windward Islands Teachers Union Claire Elshot to postulate again for the union’s presidency in the elections early next year is because she wants to ensure that there is continuity. She said yesterday that she does not want to see the Witu go dormant again – a stage it was in before she took over the helm.
“It is very important for the continuity of the organization that was established in June 1973 and became operational on June 25, 1974,” Elshot said. She sees her continued involvement with the union as president “as nothing bad.”
Elshot only half-jokingly alluded to the fact that Her Majesty Queen Beatrix has been on the throne for many years and that she is now grooming her son Prince William Alexander to become king when she leaves. Elshot said that she would like to follow in Her Majesty’s footsteps by staying on with the union and grooming someone to take her position when she leaves.
