Democratic Labour Party St Michael East candidate Nicholas Alleyne officially opened his new constituency office at My Lord’s Hill last evening promising it would improve the lives of the people of the constituency.
Alleyne told the gathering, which included Acting Prime Minister Richard Sealy, Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite, and Senator Patrick Todd that the facility would offer residents a range of services including tutoring in school work and business facilitation.
“This will not be an ordinary constituency office,” he said, adding, “this will be used as a resource centre and an empowerment centre for the people of St Michael East”.
The first-time political hopeful said, “in this centre there will be a reading room for younger ones; we will have homework and reading programmes on Saturdays”.
“We will have a business incubator as well where small businesses within St Michael East will be given an opportunity to grow; [operators] will be given directions and have the facilities of printers, use of Internet [and] computers.
“We even have persons on board that will help with financial statements.”
“So we’re empowering the people of St Michael East,” Alleyne said.
