We need a pit bull kind of person in that office, who will hang on to something and not let go.

That person must continue the high standard of discharge of the legal authority that the office has, at the level and pace that has been set by Contractor General Greg Christie.
The new candidate needs to be someone that is fearless, incorruptible and who has the ability to command the respect of the Jamaican people.
