VISION: I ardently believe that Trinidad and Tobago is a country full of rich human and natural resources but we need a visionary and committed leadership to take us to new frontiers.
The diverse communities of St. Ann’s East, from the shores of Trinidad’s north coast to the fertile valley of the Santa Cruz and Maracas valleys share one thing in common – a desire for a safer and better life. My vision for the constituency of St. Ann’s East is that the leaders of each community can create a consensus on a path to development which meets their individual needs – in alignment with the overall plan for national development.
My vision is to support the entire community to recognize the importance, potential and value of our diverse natural environment and to leverage this gift for the benefit of all. The development of our communities must be pursued within the laws designed to protect the environment, our values and ways of life.

I share the vision of my party, the people’s National Movement for achieving the status of developed nation by 2030. I will collaborate with the leaders of our communities to maintain clear plans for the development of the constituency of St. Ann’s East which will serve to strengthen the vision of the PNM to take Trinidad and Tobago to developed nation status.
I bring a history of personal achievement and high level of dedication and commitment to bid to serve. Elected as your representative, I will focus on:
• youth development, I believe I have a responsibility to assist our young men and women to make the right choices to enable them to become exemplary citizens of Trinidad and Tobago
• preservation of the environment as a source of pleasure and economic benefit
• maintenance of community infrastructure to facilitate the residential and business developments
• building on cultural traditions to promote community spirit
• traditional enterprises – fishing and agriculture – to ensure that the community gets its share of financial and infrastructural support
I became a member of the PNM because I honestly believe it is the only viable party to govern Trinidad and Tobago in a way that will deliver benefits to all our citizens in a fair and equitable manner.
I invite you to put your trust in me, and the party I represent, to walk with you as we develop St. Ann’s East and Trinidad and Tobago.
