Maduro-Caines produces pocketbook of accomplishments to quiet ‘haters’

In a move to silence critics questioning her representation, National Democratic Party (NDP) candidate for the Sixth Electoral District Alvera Maduro-Caines has produced a pocketbook of her accomplishments in the past two terms in office.

Maduro-Caines unveiled the pocketbook during her campaign launch in Purcell Estate on Thursday night.

“Tonight you will receive a pocketbook full of projects. Now, before the haters start to say this is a pocketbook because there are so little projects, I actually want you to fit it in your pocket so that you can carry it around like a weapon of information,” she said.

“Those names: Peter, Paul, Jane and even John who said I have done nothing, we can show them what the community has done together and even a snapshot of things that we will do together in the future.”

The book, she explained, depicts her undertakings in social and infrastructural projects.

She said among her accomplishments is the constructing and/or reinforcing several walls because of the hilly topography of the district. She further stated her support to schools and families throughout the district.

Four-year plans

In the meantime, Maduro-Caines said if elected back into office, she will rebuild every road in her district.

She said talks with the Youth Empowerment Programme (YEP) to open a branch in her district would also be finalised if she is re-elected.

Among her other plans are for beautification programmes and a district business bureau that would bridge the gap between established entrepreneurs and budding business owners. She said the fresh businessmen and women would be assisted in every area to ensure that they are successful in their area of focus.

“I did as good as I could, and the goals for the next four years may seem lofty, but with God all things are possible,” she said.

    “As good as you could?” Or was it “You did as much as you were allowed?”

    We voted for you, ‘woman with the little bag’ because of what you wanted to do, but let’s be honest, they had you as a place holder and it showed. While I don’t doubt you wanted to do more, it’s clear that your party will only allow you to do as much to keep appearances, that’s it.

    People please don’t be fooled. It took her 8 years to fix or to dirty free bottom road so how long is it going to take her to fix much less build other roads.

    Now my people just take a look at the Purcel Estate Community Center. When this Women became the representative of District 6 she met a good Community Center building. Look at it now. My God look at the Fishing Complex in Baugher’s Bay. Eight years and still nothing to show in District 6 but is Pocket Book of Projects. Look at the drain in Free Bottom that they rush and built before the last election, not a drop of water ever run through it or is passing through it. Go and look at it my people.

    I don’t live in District 6 but I can see. Just look at Johnson’s Ghut. Can you imagine if Omar Wallace Hodge did not widen that Road what would it be looking like today and they were talking negative about it.
    Any way why am I wasting my time? The Dam Pocket Book is empty just like she and the whole NDP Government. (National Doze Of Poison)that is what NDP stands for.

        And Alvera do? I live and I am a voter in district 6 and many times I’ve bumped into Alvera and not even … Had I been one of her friends, I bet you I would have gotten a hail or good morning before I even open my mouth.You people are something else!

        I dont know John Samuel other than seeing him while driving and listening to the rallies. He seem like a go getter and if he can get the job done through his team then so be it. John is getting my district vote. I am saying NO to NDP they have done too much harm to the BVI. The new leader is a dictator. We all suffering some more than others. We need a BVI when it was under the late H.L Stoutt.

    I got 2 manifestos that prove that your party failed to deliver on over 90% of their promises especially the ones that would have benefitted the people the most and directly. Everything that is promised by the NDP should be taken with a grain of salt. The constituents did not ask for a manifesto.The NDP was not forced to publish a manifesto. Nobody altered the information that was in the manifestos so why promise things put it in print then fail to deliver in 8 years.

    We all agree that this lady is a nice lady but at the same time we all can agree that she does not have the skills nor academic ability to champion and address the needs of district six and the entire Virgin Islands. She is a person I like but I cannot vote for her again. This country needs competent leaders now.

  12. Give Jack His Jacket says:

    Tongue and teeth does at times fall out. By far, Mr Samuel is more qualified and thus able to better represent the district. No disrespect to the little lady with the bag, (just joking). Besides his government wouldn’t/couldn’t treat him as a Place-Holder . You could clap for that as well or take it to the bank. Lets give the man his jacket. The lady is i’m sure a very nice person; helping out where she can; giving some free food here and there.

    big question: Despite how good a politician is or has been to a voter/s, including passing out the brown and white envelopes; even the bush cutting contracts; can it truly be considered Ungrateful to choose the better qualified, experienced and prepared contestant over the less qualified/prepared; especially at this crucial Bulldozed experience of our beautiful/wonderful BVI that has been so good to us? I beg to Differ….and its called Country above self. Let that sink in.

    “In the meantime, Maduro-Caines said if elected back into office, she will rebuild every road in her district.” When you fling a rock at a pack of dogs, the one that get hit holllows pi….ang. You know the sound. Well, the rock hit Road Dog. This statement by Hon Maduro-Caines is heavy and deep. Is the Hon Maduro-Caines promising that if she is re-elected she will redesign and reconstruct every lane mile of road in D-6 with functional drainage?

    So can we expect that every lane mile of road will be excavated down to the subgrade. The subgrade stabilized, the base constructed with high quality material and the top layer/riding surface laid with high quality asphalt (right temperature/ingredient mix). By the way, why candidate(s) running with a party get on the stump and bellow I will do this and do that? Should they not be parroting the party’s platform messages? Will each rep have a budget of his/her own to fulfill all these promises or he/she will have to work within the party to get things done?

    Anyway, lets get ah done, for my poor car is crying rivers of tears to give her break, for her front end, suspension, tires, brakes ……etc needs a respite from the severely deteriorated roads. They are so bad that now I have to enroll in a pot hole dodging class. This is one Olympic team I do not want to mek. Serious ting, the government needs to stop picking meh pocket and den gime poor service.

    Now let’s be real. We the people have seen how the NDP sidelined and treated this woman for 8 years. Yet she is sticking around with them for a further term. As school children say “da mek sense”.

    She has not accomplished much even when her government was in power. But obviously majority of the people in the 6th don’t care about this which makes you wonder.

    What has VIP said on their trail that is convincing that they will be able to execute these social plans. Half the times I have not heard any plans. From you many comments I think you are being sexist. I could be wrong. NDP was lead by one person and some of the works was accomplished. It will now be lead by another and because of the much hate love we feel nothing will be accomplished. I think you all are listening to these launches with deaf ears. Nothing saying vote NDP all the way, but some of these candidates are empty vessels. Things do not happen overnight and I think that is VIP take on the issues at hand.

    It is not Alvera’s fault. You wouldnt call a plumber to fix your car even if he is the best and nicest plumber in the world. Politics isn’t a beauty contest or popularity contest. It isn’t about who did you a favor. Politics is not just about one individual. Your decision affects the entire district and entire territory as well. When you are being selfish, foolish or careless your actions creates a ripple effect that leads to mismanagement, overspending, financial loss, poor infrastructure, Black listing etc. It’s ok to be loyal and give someone a chance but after 8 years you should know clearly when it’s time to do what’s best for the territory.

    Ungratefulness is a sin. If she so bad why the VIP camp when the NDP was fragmented wanted her to run on their ticket?

    If John is such a person that want to represent the people of district six where was he after hurricane Irma, Maria and the floods? If John want to represent the people where is his track record on how many lives he has impacted in that district, can anyone especially the youths say that John has made an impact in my life by improving my education, mentorship programs to teach young men and women in captain in the shipping. In the shipping industry have he once in his lifetime spare head any initative on boat safety the imporatance of having vessels licenced at the shipping registry?

    Have he one day encourage the said young men on the streets in his district the importance of education and being independant, owning their own business or come around talking to them or finding out how their lives are being impacted on a daily basis?

    When you want to represent people it is not always about infrastructure the most important is building people up.

    Before Hurricanes yoy had an improve basket ball court, community center, paved roads, improve garbagge bin by free bottom, johnson ghut road improvement, bell vue basket ball court improvement, a fishing complex. It only took in a twink of an eye two Hurricanes to show us just as we build them up I took them down. What is man God giveth and he certainly take it.

    John can come and offer all this lovely building projects but remeber it just take a twink of an eye by one sudden diaster of mother nature to wipe it clean away.
