Candidate's Perspective

I was born in Glanvillia, a small but very active village of Portsmouth. I attended the St. John’s Primary School, the Portsmouth Secondary School, and the University of Santiago de Cuba. On Completion of my studies I worked as a teacher at the Portsmouth Secondary School for over a year before being employed in my field of study.

In addition to being employed with a private engineering company for the past seven years, I have been involved in a number of community groups and activities such as the PTA of the St. John’s primary school where I am the vice chair; a member of the Glanvillia improvement Committee; the Portsmouth Catholic Church Building committee, where I served as vice chair and was directly responsible for the building of the Borne chapel; and I am also directly involved in the design of a number of projects for the development of the town like the Benjamin park, the Borough Square area and the Guess Park.

I am presently a member of the executive board of the Dominica Association of Professional Engineers. On a national level I was involved in the direct construction of the Petro Caribe Filling station at Jimmit; the expansion and lighting of the Melville Hall airport; the construction of the Pointe Mitchell Sea defense wall and the Intake, treatment plant and supply line of the west coast water supply project at Picard.

My candidacy for the Portsmouth constituency embodies my desire to apply my talent and skills in order to develop my constituency and my country in general.

Plans for Constituency:

  • Art culture and tourism development
  • Affordable housing and physical infrastructure development
  • Sustainable development and the revitalization of agriculture and shipping
  • New and improved education, healthcare and sporting facilities
