First District Representative, Andrew Fahie has teamed up with others to give every child in his District a $25 gift certificate to help with back to school expenses.

Speaking at a meeting in his District recently, Fahie told parents that while the amount might not be great, every bit counts.

“It is just something that I go out there scouting to get for the children because I know that they are going back to school. Twenty-five dollars might not seem like a whole lot, but in these hard times, every little bit counts. So I try to get as many for the children in the District as possible.”

Fahie said under the initiative, every child who is in school is eligible to benefit.

“So, once you live in the area, you can be a registered voter or not, you can be from here or not, once you living here and your child going to school here this is for you. The storm didn’t hit one set of people. Where you from don’t qualify you for a problem, so once you are a part of the community you are going to be part of what happening here.”

The certificate is valid for one month and is redeemable at Island Services in Pasea Estate.

    I have a serious problem with Politicians!

    Why is it when they are out of office they have the most ideas, most giving heart, the most ears and are most caring ???

    Then when they get in office, their ideas are never executed, their heart turn black, they become deaf and they gone from care bear to Satan!

    I have seen many VIP candidates switch up after getting in office and we have seen NDP candidates do the same thing!

    It is the sickest thing I have ever seen!

    POWER and MONEY truly is the root of all evil.

      I sense your frustration in your post but please note it is not Money that is the root of all evil but the LOVE of money is.

    You need to back off of Andrew Fahie. Ever since the hurricane this man has been doing his utmost best for the people of the first district as well as other districts.

    Give jack his jacket. Andrew Fahie communicates with his people regardless.
