    It’s good to see that so many young individuals are getting involve in election, including holding position in the ministeries. I think we as Dominicans, as a people, as a country, are moving in the right direction for a more progressive and competitives caribbean community. As a nation, we have been deprived for to many years, in the arears of geographic, domographic and economics. We heard that our Island is to hard to fine, we are to under populated, and Dominica can not provide for its citizens. “Well” we can all see the turn around effects. Our airport is about to have night service, including having direct flights from many destinations. That is a sign of many good things to come.

    Living and traveling between the United States and Canada, i have the pleasure of talking to many Dominicans, neighbouring Islanders, and visitors to Dominica. Many of them where paying attention to the election. That gives me hope that we are being notice around the world now more than ever. The public inauguration at the windsor park is on of many first step to letting the people of Dominica understand that they are part of the process. Traveling to many distinations has allow me meet and associate with my countryman who are living overseas, to get there insight for and about DA. Generally speaking, i get lots of positives comments with some obvious concerns. One of my dream for Dominica, is to see the day that educated, skillful, and professional Dominicans who are contributing there knowlegde to other countries, return to help enhance one of the most beautiful nation on the face of the world.

    In my field of work i see many people from different walks of life. Some are my clients and some are business affiliates. One of my introduction, is let my clients know about my place of birth (Dominca), and entice them to visit the Nature Island, weather or not they become my clients. For Dominicans who lives in other countries, our contribution to Dominica can be a word of mouth promotion. Telling our colleges, clients, friends and associates about this wonderful green and breath taking places in the world, and they can’t afford not to visit. Let them know it will be the most unigue experience they will ever experience.

    dont take pappy for a JOKE! u will be surprise the good Lord can use him for the next leader of this country and my reason for saying dat is based on scripture.

    if u look and read the bible the Lord hardly called the noble men of this earth to do HIS work. He always calls the lowly, uneducated and humble. two examples.

    1. The Lord Jesus Christ was a son of a CARPENTER

    2. DAVID was a sherpherds boy! and man he did wonders.

    the RICH HE made no mention of in His days on this earth. the only time we read about them was that rich man who borrowed his tomb to lay the body of Jesus. and the next RICH ruler who would not give Lazarus his crumbs but ended in HELL and wanted Lazarus to deep his finger in water to cool his tongue.

    so when i look at the rich today or the so called ones they have nothing on us the ones dey consider poor.

    i always say like OBAMA, one day Pappy will rule this nation but its in GOd time.

    The campaign was free and fair, because each party was allowed to campaign. Dominica has nothing to change when it is the same laws and rules by which Freedom and UWP ruled when they were in power.This time Skerrit they lost.Skerrit won . Smoke it the rules were fair, u all began your hatred campaign since January 2008, begging for election, since 2008, now it did not work for u, u are crying. ahcha.
    Will the losers accept their lost as adults and move on. go and plant or work. Stop protesting. It make u all look very bad, and childish.
    Stop wishing Dominicans bad because they did not vote for you.
