Opposition Leader Dr. Peter Phillips, and Marjorie Taylor in 1992, upon winning her first election to Parliament
The House of Representatives on Tuesday afternoon paid tribute to one of its former members Ambassador Marjorie Taylor who died on the weekend.
Miss Taylor succeeded Michael Manley to serve as the Peoples National Party (PNP) member of Parliament for East Kingston and Port Royal. She was also a senator and a KSAC councillor.
"What perhaps describes her best is her belief in and commitment to the social upliftment of the ordinary Jamaican. It is that to which she devoted her life," declared Opposition Leader and PNP President Dr. Peter Phillips, who led the tributes.
Miss Taylor was the first Children's Ambassador, a position which paved the way for the current Office of the Children's Advocate.
