Opposition leader and President of the New Democratic Party (NDP), Dr. Godwin Friday, will be meeting with residents of North Leeward today, to hear their concerns, and ideas for development.
The consultation is scheduled to begin 7:00pm at the Fitz Hughes Government School.
Also in attendance will be Parliamentary Representative for the constituency, Roland ‘Patel’ Matthews, and Senator Kay Bacchus-Baptiste.
Dr. Friday had made a commitment to listen to Vincentians, discuss their concerns and garner their views on how to make St. Vincent and the Grenadines work for all.
Working on the premise that “who feels it knows it”, he has been engaged in various initiatives to meet and interact with Vincentian citizens across the country and the Diaspora.
This North Leeward consultation follows on other activities such as a Youth Forum in Kingstown, a Farmers Consultation in South Central Windward, and a consultation with Vincentian students at the UWI Mona Campus, in Jamaica.
In addition, Dr. Friday has been visiting communities around St. Vincent and the Grenadines and speaking with Vincentians of all persuasions in his weekly ‘walk abouts’. He has also met with Vincentians in the Diaspora, including Canada and New York.
