What are your ex­pec­ta­tions from your coun­cil­lor who will be elected in the up­com­ing lo­cal gov­ern­ment elec­tion?

Jamaica Gleaner - - WESTERN FOCUS -

La­toya Samuels, Falmouth di­vi­sion:

“My ex­pec­ta­tion for the elected coun­cil­lor is to see him do­ing more for garbage con­trol, and reg­u­lar clean­ing of the gut­ters, not only in the town area but sur­round­ing ar­eas, and part­ner­ing more with pri­vate en­ti­ties to help al­le­vi­ate un­em­ploy­ment.”

Rank­ing of cur­rent coun­cil­lor: 3/10

Theresa Ec­cle­ston, Wake­field di­vi­sion:

“I want to see them form an ac­tive youth group in the com­mu­nity, cre­ate job op­por­tu­ni­ties for com­mu­nity mem­bers, and set up home­work cen­tres for stu­dents. We have not seen any im­prove­ment in the road con­di­tions over the years, and col­lec­tion of garbage is poor.”

Rank­ing of cur­rent coun­cil­lor: 3/10

Doneika Delisser, Dun­cans di­vi­sion:

“I ex­pect the coun­cil­lor to stick to com­mit­ments as it re­lates to ful­fill­ing prom­ises to the peo­ple of this com­mu­nity. What­ever it may be, just try and stick with it; don’t just go tour­ing ar­eas that are in need be­fore the elec­tions and make prom­ises.”

Rank­ing of cur­rent coun­cil­lor: 7/10

Craig Moore, Sher­wood Con­tent di­vi­sion:

“I ex­pect the coun­cil­lor to stand for the peo­ple, no mat­ter what their sta­tus, and also help to pro­vide job op­por­tu­ni­ties for the young peo­ple. As for the cur­rent coun­cil­lor, we have not seen her a lot from the time she won.”

Rank­ing of cur­rent coun­cil­lor: 4/10
