The United Workers Party (UWP) has presented former employee of the Ross University School of Medicine, Rosana Emmanuel, as the party’s new candidate for the Petite Savanne Constituency.
She was introduced to the public at a recently held meeting of the UWP at Bellevue Chopin.
“I have also listened to the pleas and cries of those who were less optimistic and seen the plight of my people. However your dreams, passion and desires came shining through which motivates me as a member of Team Dominica,” Emmanuel said.
According to her, the constituents will work for the kind of real change that Team Dominica will bring about.
“Therefore, I stand before you as a voice for the voiceless, a voice for the poor and the oppressed, a hope for the hopeless, a light for those in the dark and fearless for those who live in fear,” she stated.
She said she will be forever grateful to those who allowed her into their homes and lives during the past eight (8) weeks discussing their concerns and disappointments, their joys and sorrows.
Emmanuel presented a four-pillar development plan for the Petite Savanne Constituency which she said, is anchored within the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and is consistent with the United Workers– Team Dominica’s overall development plan for Dominica. The plan will focus on Agriculture, Infrastructure, Empowerment and Social Protection.
“This is not my platform, this is our platform and together we can and move our constituency forward,” she told Petite Savanne constituents.
“Every election we have a decision to make and, what makes this election different, is that the decision is very simple,” Emmanuel told her audience. “You can choose more of the same: a government that has failed on its performance and promises for nineteen years, more families living in poverty, rampant unemployment, lack of social services, housing issues, and an administration that has shown us that they have no clue how to move this country forward. Or you can vote for the party that has real plans to change all of this.”
She described her party as a team that will restore livelihoods through restoration of road networks, development of technical skills, the conduct of a needs assessment for the elderly, and the creation of an agro processing plant which she said, will result in restoration of respect and dignity for the people.
“I ask of you that you give Team Dominica a chance to make the real change that is needed to move our country forward,” Emmanuel exhorted the people of Petite Savanne.
