Occupation: Agricultural Engineer

He holds a Diploma in Agriculture and several Management Certificates including Report Writing, Decision Making and Time Management.

Work Experience:

He is a real community man and has sponsored several Football Teams in Bath Estate, Newtown , Loubiere , Eggleston and Giraudel and participated in several other community activities. He was very instrumental in the revival of the Fete Charlotteville in 2008.

Political Career:

He joined the DLP in 1994 as president and became a senator in 1995 until 2000 when he was elected as Parliamentary Representative for the Roseau South Constituency.
He has held several Ministerial Portfolios including Minister for Finance, Agriculture, Enterprise Development and Public Works and Infrastructural Development. He has also acted as Prime Minister in the Roosevelt Skerrit Administration on several occasions.

Candidate's Perspective:

It is the first time in over 100 years that our brothers and sisters from that community were able to enjoy what so many of us take for granted.

As we look towards the next five years, I want us to reach many more landmarks together. One of these will be to improve and increase the housing stock in the Roseau South constituency. I have a major programme of repairs planned and a new housing development will be built in Newtown.

I am going to bring a new approach to the employment of people in our constituency, especially young people. Opportunities for self-employment will be high on my agenda either through the existing National Employment Programme or through technical training and support in fishing, agriculture and horticulture.

The cut flower industry is an area ripe for expansion and one which can generate employment. We will provide technical assistance and source export markets for those involved in this important activity.

Young people interested in fishing will be encouraged to join the Cooperative so that as a group they will be able to access greater funding and technical assistance for equipment, new methods and markets. The residents of Bath Estate, Eggleston and surrounding areas can look forward to the improvement of the football fields in their areas as we continue to promote good health through healthy exercise.

I have a sound plan for the people of Roseau South constituency over the next five years. I am therefore asking for your support and your vote as we continue to work for you.

Plans for Constituency:

  • A housing development in Newtown will be a priority
  • There will be a frontal approach to job creation through the National Employment Programme and the creation of new small enterprises owned and operated by young people
  • Increase the resources available to floriculture as a means of providing jobs for women and young people
