Aiming to better the lives of constituents
MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT: Juliet Cuthbert-Flynn CONSTITUENCY: St Andrew West Rural
VOWING TO be a “catalyst of change” for her constituents, first-time Member of Parliament Juliet Cuthbert-Flynn said during her tenure she intends to show them that “their dreams are worth pursuing”.
In her maiden presentation in the House of Representatives, Cuthbert Flynn said she was in the early stages of establishing a skills training centre in the Red Hills area of the St Andrew West Rural constituency, a goal she aims to achieve through collaboration with some enthusiastic community members.
“There are many young
people without a skill in my constituency and if we want to move from poverty to prosperity, then persons who cannot go to college must be equipped with the most basic of training to become productive members in society where they can provide for their families. I have identified specific needs for this area and I will be working tirelessly until this becomes a reality,” she told her parliamentary colleagues.
Cuthbert Flynn also reported that she assisted more than 30 university students pursuing higher education, valued at $3 million, through her Constituency Development Fund.
A five-time Olympian, Cuthbert Flynn committed to supporting sporting initiatives in her constituency, noting that she has dedicated $1.5 million to the development of the Red Hills Football Club and the resurfacing of the playing field.
The MP also highlighted plans to significantly improve the volume of potable water to communities in her constituency and to reduce non-revenue water to acceptable levels.
