Guillaume Arnell presents the first issue of “the senator’s Letter’

Guillaume Arnell

It is surrounded by his people and his fellow politicians over dinner* that Senator Guillaume Arnell presented in his “letter” of last week, a twenty page brochure that summarizes his parliamentary work done during the year.

The elected member reveals that he put all his energy to "defend the interests of Saint- Martin" during interventions in the Chamber, the work being done in committee as well as within the political group to which he belongs, the RDSE (Rassemblement démocratique et social européen). Guillaume Arnell wants to share and be held accountable for the energy and implication he put into his work. “These commitments oblige me to be efficient and exemplary in my task after a lack** of representation of the island in the Sénat for eight long months”, he writes.

Guillaume Arnell reflects on the major highlights of his first year of term in office, in Saint-Martin and Paris: the vote of the ‘Loi Macron’ and the “difficult question of the registers of commerce and companies” overseas, the analysis of the bill on the modernization of the law in overseas territories, the participation in the pro-youth forum, the participation in the 4th meeting of the Collectivités d’Outre-Mer and the numerous meetings with important political figures (Jean-Pierre Chevènement, the ambassador of India in Paris, the minister Sylvia Pinel, etc.).

This first Senator’s Letter, of which five hundred copies were printed, is available and free of access at the Hôtel de la Collectivité and the CCISM. A copy will also be given to the members of the economic, social and cultural council (CESC). It will also be available in the Senator’s office, which should open very soon on the boulevard de France in Marigot.

The second edition should be issued in July of this year.

*The prefect Anne Laubies had also been invited.
**On December 31st 2013, Louis-Constant Fleming resigned from his Senate seat, nine months before the end of his term, leaving his seat vacant.
