UWP Petite Savanne candidate pledges to work with constituents to bring real change

Rosana Emmanuel

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.

    :?: Petite Savanne carries most of the votes in that constituency; with the support of Bagatelle, Fond St.Jean and Pointe Carib, plus the support she’ll get from Pichelin and Bellevue Chopin, she’s got the advantage! The people of Petite Savanne would be very silly not to give her all their votes over the vagabond that the one-man rogue regime prime mistake imposed on them! :?: The Creator is really not a police; the one-man rogue regime has done everything wrong in the selection of candidates!!!

    Change is a must. We have been suffering too long under this Lazy Labour Party.
    Miss Emanuel, the way to go! Another lost for the Lazy and Fraudulent Laba Party and a magnitude landslide victory for the United Workers Party.

  4. Rotten Teeth
    May 13, 2019

    I never knew we had so many highly qualified dentists in Dominica man. We talking about Dentist Rosanna, Dentist “Clemo” in the Vieille-case constituency where the worse rotten teeth is, and there is an 80% chance that old teeth that’s been smelling and infecting those is contact with him will be removed! Dentist Romaine, where another old rotten teeth is smelling and there is a 90% chance that old teeth will be removed.Dentist George, in the Paid Bouch constituency, where another old rotten teeth is, though not as long as others, but that rotten teeth is greedy, selfish and deceptive. It will be hard to uproot that old teeth now but it will be shaken.

    I just hope that she’ll be true to her commitments. What she has espoused is servant leadership. That is precisely what the country needs presently, consultations with the common folks, humility, concrete plans and a person who genuine cares about the struggling man and woman. Way to go.

    Great lady, educated too.
    Since the well loved Doctor is not a round, I am sure you will do well.
    One thing I know, Petite Savanne/ Bagatelle and Fond St. Jean supports their own. And since Petite Savanne resides in Belle Vue (Belle Savanne) these are four hamlets that’s already in the bag for you. I have been touching the pulse of people in these four areas, and they all tell me a change is coming.
    Your concentration should be Pichline where your competition comes from.
    Given the fact that she is a new candidate who does not resonate with all, it is fair to say that there will be a change in this constituency come next elections.
    Work hard Rosie, only you can lose this for yourself.

    @ little lazy kid on the block, did you realize this woman was not a kid on the block but rather, a hard working professional that worked for Ross University, until Roosevelt Skerrit was tricked by his own bajan advisors that tricked him and took Ross to Barbados? Shame on you little kid on the block that still supports Skerrit

      So those who got what they wanted and still want more are NOT greedy? Too much of me, me, me in Dominica. Where is the love of country? That is what I cant stand.

      Ask skerrit why he went up for election. He was too impatient to wait for scholarship go study even after he had gotte2 one to go new Mexico already. Oh how we forget? Today he has redefined what it means to have greed and hate and the venom has been transmitted

        May 14, 2019

        You seem to forget what Lennox do with the TWO SCHOLARSHIPS that was given to Marigot man?!

          You are a most dedicated water carrier for a megalomaniac and a most corrupt political party. Stop living on the doorsteps of the Red Clinic. I can only imagine that you are always first in line with your hands outstretched. Stop sponging off the tax payer’s dollars. Skerrit’s policies attract the worst Dominica has to offer, the lazy, the unambitious, the vagrant, the gullible and unknowledgeable (ignorant).
