PNM candidate wants to work with Volney|Trinidad Guardian


She said improved drainage to prevent flooding and good roads were among the major concerns of residents of her electoral district. Joyeau said the PNM’s Vision 2020 Development Plan for T&T was not only about the construction of high rise buildings but also the improvement of basic infrastructure, which touched the needs of every citizen.”

The paragraph above was taken from an article entitled "PNM candidate wants to work with Volney". There is nothing wrong with that especially when it means improving the lives of the people in the community that the representative serves. However, I am very surprised that Afiya Joyeau, candidate for the electoral district of Valsayn/St. Joseph will bring up the PNM's 20/20 vision and state that it was not just about the "construction of high rise buildings". Come on now Afiya, that is all that we saw and that is all that the former government spoke about.

I can't remember the former government making statements about the improved drainage and road construction taking place unless it was packaged as part of the electoral process. We neede to see and hear about improvements to the communities not just about the development of the City of Port-of-Spain to believe that the 20/20 vision had anything to do with the lives of the people in the distressed communities.

Nice try though. I wish you well because we need a strong opposition to keep the government honest.
