PNM Arima councillor joins COP|Trinidad Guardian Newspapers

Yet another People’s National Movement councillor has crossed the floor to the People’s Partnership. The revelation came on Friday at the Congress of the People (COP) meeting on Friday in Arima. Outgoing councillor for Calvary on the Arima Borough Council (ABC), Pheria Fournillier mounted the COP platform criticising the PNM on lack of performance and disregard for the burgesses. Having served her constituency from 2003 to 2010, Fournillier told party leader Winston Dookeran, deputy political leader Prakash Ramdadhar and seven of the party’s councillors contesting tomorrow’s election in the ABC that she jumped ship when she saw how Arima was stifled for progress and development over the past seven years.

It took one month of PP governance for Councilor Pheria of the Arima Borough Council to see the light or was it the quick response of Mr. Jack Warner to get the Mt. Pleasant Bridge built after 29 years of waiting? There is room for all citizens to change and come to the team that wants to create progress for the people in the district but please don't expect a prize of political placement of alderman or anything relating to political power.

The truth is that after serving the PNM for all these years and seeing nothing done even with their voice inside the PNM that controlled and still controls the Local Government body in Arima they remained loyal to the PNM. Now that things have changed they want to become part of the winning team. Well they can continue to work on behalf of the residents but it will take some time before the PP can trust these defectors.

No one knows what is in their hearts but if service is the goal then let their deed follow them and let them work on behalf of the people and prove their worth. We wish them all well and hopefully the character of the Arima council will change tomorrow after the votes have been cast.

Go out and vote and create the change that you want! Your time has come again and it is very important that you speak up for the changes that you want and deserve!
