Sinckler presents constituency manifesto


Share post:

Chris Sinckler formally presented his manifesto to constituents in St Michael North West tonight while proclaiming he had ten years of strong parliamentary representation.

Waving the booklet Ten Years Strong at the platform mounted at Free Hill, Black Rock, St Michael, Sinckler said that over the course of his two terms 18 roads had been repaired or new ones constructed.

He also invoked the name of his predecessor Lawson Weekes, the longest-serving member of Parliament for the area and in whose name the branch developed a scholarship programme. Sinckler said out of that programme hundreds of children benefited and some received school supplies.

He responded to comments about his giving away iPads, televisions and other devices by pointing out that his staff solicited the items from others. He said last Christmas the office gave away 750 hampers in the constituency and held a 1000-strong Christmas party. 

“When you have the best you don’t worry about the rest.  We are not going back.  I ask humbly for your continued support,” he concluded. 

His presentation was followed by candidates  James Paul, Steve Blackett and Michael Carrington who praised Sinckler and encouraged the members of the constituency to re-elect him. (AC)
