Samuel Bulgin is attorney general of the Cayman Islands. He hails from Westmoreland and attended Mannings High School in Savanna-La-Mar.
“Jamaica means everything to me including the fact that it is a country with enormous capacity, talents, and cultural richness, opportunities and proud nationals,” he said.
Mr. Bulgin first came to Grand Cayman in November 1992 as a crown counsel in the chambers of the attorney general.
“I moved up the ranks having been promoted to solicitor general in 1998 and thereafter to attorney general in 2003. I was made Queen’s Counsel in 2004,” he explained.
For the 50th anniversary of independence, Mr. Bulgin will be celebrating by taking part in some of the public events both here and in his homeland, he said. “My message is that Jamaica is 50 and as a nation we should be very proud. However, we need to recognise and accept that we still have a lot of work to do in order to demonstrate our maturity as a nation and to give others less reasons to continue to have reservations about our country.
“We should continue to lift up the brand ‘Jamaica’.”
