PROFILE

Occupation: Doctor

Age: 38

Education:

With the love, support and encouragement of a devoted grandmother, Kenneth survived some challenging periods in his life to emerge victorious in the realization of his dreams to become a medical doctor. Clearly a fighter, he excelled in the then Common Entrance Exams in 1981 to later emerge as the top student in the CXC exams of 1986.Kenneth taught for one year, then went on to pursue studies in Cuba and obtained his medical degree in 1996.

Work Experience:

Kenneth taught for one year, then went on to pursue studies in Cuba and obtained his medical degree in 1996.  He has been the Medical Officer of the Grand Bay Health District for over a decade, earning a reputation as a compassionate and caring doctor.

Candidate's Perspective:

While we have made great progress in education and housing generally we have also impacted positively on the lives of people in Pichelin with the bridge to the health centre; so too the young people of Petite Savanne who have a playing field for the first time; the residents of Bagatelle and Petite Savanne are enjoying a reliable water supply and the landscape of Dubique has changed with the sale of house lots to residents there for 25 cents a square foot.

hese are just some of the things that I am proud to have achieved simply because they have made a huge difference to the lives of ordinary, hard working Dominicans.

As we look to the future I will continue to implement social policies that will change the lives of the less fortunate; that will prepare our young people to own their own businesses; that will provide safety and security for our senior citizens and that will bring economic opportunities in tourism, fishing and agriculture to the people of our constituency.

We have a great opportunity to commercialize the fishing industry to create sustainable jobs by the construction of a fishing harbor and marine complex at Dubique.

Such a complex will provide opportunities for marine leisure activities aimed at tourists and locals alike and provide jobs for residents of the constituency.

I will also be promoting the development of tourist related projects on private lands through Government’s existing concessions for such developments as another means of providing employment and economic activity.

Similarly I will be assisting young people who have good ideas to turn them into business ventures with the support of the Small Business Unit that will provide grants and concessional loans.

The National Employment Programme will be expanded for other young people seeking work and on the job training.
Infrastructural development of roads, bridges and drainage will continue in order to provide the conditions for investment.

I look forward to working with you and for you to help you realize your dreams. I am therefore asking you to vote for me so that I can continue to implement the people centred policies of the Dominica Labour Party.
