The United National Congress is ready for upcoming Local Government elections. The party has completed a rigorous screening exercise, in which around 600 people interested in serving their communities presented themselves for consideration.
On Tuesday 1st October, 2019, the party hosted another in a series of training workshops for its Local Government candidates to prepare them to be stronger candidates and as such better representatives. The Political Leader, the Honourable Kamla Persad-Bissessar has mandated that all candidates presenting themselves for office on a UNC ticket be trained so that they develop the critical skills needed to provide outstanding service to their burgesses.
“The UNC has been working in the communities, hearing the concerns of the people and presenting our plans to fix the problems created by the ruling PNM administration,” UNC Public Relations Officer, Senator Anita Haynes said.
“This Government has failed the people of Trinidad and Tobago, and they have no intention of working for you, and they’ve shown this over four years, since they’ve been in office,” Senator Haynes said. “The UNC has a demonstrated track record of service and performance, even in the face of the vindictive and callous behavior of the PNM in starving Regional Corporations of critical funding.”
“Our Political Leader, Mrs Kamla Persad-Bissessar, has presented a clear roadmap for the development of Trinidad and Tobago at both the local and national levels,” she said. “We are confident that when the next Local Government election is called, the people will choose the team and leader that can get the job done.”
“The bottom line is the PNM talks, the UNC works, and citizens want leaders who work to improve their lives, and the PNM cannot provide that,” Senator Haynes said.
