On Tuesday, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) nominated capable, serious, independent-minded candidates in all fifteen (15) constituencies in Grenada, Carriacou & Petite Martinique – a team of professionals, committed to putting people first.

“Our team is a combination of experience and youthfulness – new ideas and veteran wisdom,” noted NDC Leader V. Nazim Burke. “The men and women who have joined our team come from all walks of life – business, agriculture, government service, trade unions and academia. They are united in the belief that we need to create more jobs and opportunities for our people.”

“From our twenty-something year old candidates like Tevin Andrews and Ali Dowden with plenty of new ideas and energy to wise veterans like Dr. George Vincent and Franka Bernardine who have the experience necessary to ensure they’re ready on day one, our team is the right mix of experience and youth,” Burke continued. “Our champions in St. Patrick, Joseph Andall and Cecilia Ann John, will work to bring development and make sure there are proper health services in the area. Our team for St. Andrew’s – Phillip Alexander, Terry Hillaire, Sylvester Quarless and Patrick Simmons – will make sure that Grenville and the surroundings aren’t forgotten and that the parish becomes a true jobs engine – creating opportunities for young people in those areas.

In St. Mark, Jerome Thomas is an independent minded voice of the community and in the Town of St. George, Claudette Joseph is from the area and cares deeply for the people. And, in St. George South and St. David, Ray Roberts and Adrian Thomas know that job creation isn’t enough – that we have to build an opportunity society where everyone has a chance to succeed!”

“The campaign is engaged, and, this campaign is about four things: jobs, healthcare, lower taxes and more opportunities. . These are the most pressing issues that need government’s immediate attention. It’s no longer time to wait or make excuses – it’s time to vote… for an NDC team that puts people first!” Burke concluded.
