Sylvester Quarless is a successful business entrepreneur who wants to see the people of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique become more enterprising. He realizes that in a world that is becoming a global village, we cannot rely on Government protection indefinitely. People need Government to create the conditions for them to acquire the skills to become more competitive and spot niches in the market. He sees agriculture, tourism and transport as the key sectors for development.
Sylvester Quarless is appalled at the nepotism, the corruption, the victimization and the increasing dependence of proud Grenadians on the New National Party (NNP) Government. He is therefore excited about being part of the next National Democratic Congress (NDC) Government. There are several issues affecting his constituents that he will keep on the agenda. Among these are:
- The revitalization of agriculture
- The provision of relevant education and training for young people
- The establishment of programmes to help ordinary people get into business
- The reduction in the cost of living
Sylvester Quarless has the ability and the commitment to make a difference in lives of citizens. He was educated at the Grenada Boys Grammar School. He later studied at the University of the West Indies and in Germany. He specialized in Journalism, Public Relations and Public Administration. He then worked as Information Officer with the Government of Grenada for 28 years. He is currently self-employed.
Sylvester Quarless has given sterling service to his community through the National Youth Organization and the Catholic Youth Arm. He has sponsored a number of sports clubs such as the Invaders Cricket Teams, the Lower Capital Football and Netball Teams and Harford Village Football Team. He is now poised to give public service at the highest level. He can be trusted to deliver.
Sylvester is the father of 6 children. He understands the needs of youth and knows that investment in young people is essential for the development of his nation. It is because of the policies and programmes that the NDC has in store for young people that he joined the Party in the first place.
