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.
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.
