It is with sadness that I recognise the passing of Hon. Mr. John Bonwell McLean, MLA, MEC on Saturday, 24 August, 2019.
He was devoted to the East End community, which he represented in the Legislative Assembly from 1976 to 2000.
Mr. McLean was elected at a very young age, served three times as minister and did six terms as an elected member.
He served on the Executive Council, which is now called Cabinet, and advocated for development throughout the Cayman Islands.
In his district of East End he is credited with the development of two civic centres, which have served the people in that District well during natural disasters. He also initiated the road, which bears his name in East End.
During his tenure he had responsibility for Agriculture, Lands, Natural Resources, Communications, Environment and Works.
