Statement from the Leader of the Opposition On the passing of Theresa Moxey-Ingraham 20 March 2018
It is with great sadness that I learned of the passing of educator, parliamentarian and Cabinet Minister Theresa-Moxey-Ingraham.
As a fellow parliamentarian, I have fond memories of our animated and lively debates in the House of Assembly as we legislated laws and formulated policies in our quest to build a better Bahamas. We did not always agree on policy issues but it was clear that we desired a better Bahamas and worked tirelessly toward that common goal.
In a move of bipartisanship and statesmanship, Mrs. Moxey-Ingraham accepted the invitation from the PLP government and served with distinction on the McWeeney Constitutional Reform Commission. She played a pivotal role on the education committee, travelling the entire archipelago educating Bahamians on the proposed constitutional changes to bring about gender equality. Part of her legacy in building a better Bahamas was her advocacy for equality for all. She will be sorely missed but her work will live on in perpetuity.
On behalf of my parliamentary caucus and the Progressive Liberal Party, I express heartfelt condolences to the family of Theresa Moxey-Ingraham in their hour of loss. Of comfort to them was the fact that she was a good and faithful soldier who fought the good fight and has now taken her eternal rest and gone on to receive her eternal and just reward.
May her soul rest in peace.
