To my Samoa

Dear Editor,


As you head to the polls today, remember that we are one of the few lucky nations that have this method to voice our approval or disapproval for the services of our leaders. 

Remember that true democracy comes with conflicts and differences of views.

Our ancestors entrusted all of us as Caretaker of our Beloved Samoa Islands. It was not bestowed on an individual to be the sole Caretaker of our land.

We as Caretakers have the right to make changes with our votes. 

Vote for the best candidate to move us forward to a brighter future for all and not just a few. Vote for new Ideas and Progression regardless of the Status quo.

The success of our Island Nation lies with your votes on this 2016 Election. 

Vote with a clear/clean conscience. 

Vote for the candidate that can make all of us better. 

Do not allow anybody to influence your vote. 

I know it’s hard and also extremely risky to be different.

Campaigning is over. Your Vote counts. It is not about Parties or affiliations. 

It is about the Best Person who can make a positive impact for and in all of us.

No matter the outcome, please remember that we are all Caretakers of our Great Land. Ia fa’amanuia atu Le Atua ia tatou uma. Manuia le Palotaga.


T. Samatua Leone
