BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, November 14, 2018 (PLP PR Media Inc.) -- Residents of Phillip’s Village on Tuesday, November 13, opened their doors and hearts to their long-serving Area Parliamentary Representative Dr the Hon Timothy Harris when he conducted a ‘meet and greet’ walkthrough in the village as part of activities to mark the 25th anniversary of his service to the constituency and the country.
“I want to thank the scores of persons who turned out today for our meet and greet effort as part of our 25th anniversary celebratory activities,” said Dr Harris who is also the Prime Minister of the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis. He was accompanied by members of the Constituency Number Seven Group on the walk that had started at 5:00 pm and ended shortly before 7:30 pm.
“Meeting the people where they are has been a fundamental part of our approach to parliamentary representation where we afford multiple occasions and opportunities for the constituents to interact, to engage, to discuss, and to make recommendations for the upliftment of themselves, their families, and their communities. In this regard, this afternoon’s activity was in that same vein.”
Dr Harris noted that the people he met were positively disposed and they appreciated the fact that the county has advanced, and that the constituency has advanced even more as a result of the vibrancy and the energy he had brought to their representation. He affirmed that he could not have done it without the quality support he has had from all the constituents.
“I am inspired by this to continue to do what I do best - work and serve the people, humbly, faithfully, and reliably, and to use my best efforts to advance the people’s agenda,” said Prime Minister Harris, who is also the National Political Leader of the Peoples Labour Party (PLP), one of the three parties in the Team Unity Administration.
Also accompanying him during the walkthrough, which was the first of a planned series of walkthroughs in the all the villages in Constituency Number Seven, were the PLP National Chairman Mr Warren Thompson, PLP National Secretary Ms Myrtilla Williams, PLP Women Arm Representative Mrs Sonia Henry, PLP Youth Arm Representative Mr Manasses Huggins, and PLP Founding Member Mr William Phillip. Others were members of the various PLP’s Branch Executives.
“I was happy to have, again, received the warmth and support of the constituents of Number Seven,” said Dr Harris. “Phillip’s Village in particular shows that the bond developed over the last twenty five years certainly runs long and deep, and for that I want to say ‘thank you’. I thank the constituents for speaking candidly regarding issues that impact them at the individual and family level and also for their recommendations in terms of how we could advance the country.”
Prime Minister Harris thanked one of the villagers, Mrs Sylvia Audain, who offered a word of prayer to him and those accompanying him at the start of the ‘meet and greet’ walkthrough. He observed that Mrs Audain was indeed a woman of God because what she did publicly (offer the prayer) is what she does on a daily basis.
“I feel buoyed by this experience; I feel that the deep-rooted connectedness that has been part and is part of my legacy of service to the people that has been paying dividends, have paid dividends in the past, and it continues now to be of tremendous value and benefit,” concluded Prime Minister Harris. “I say ‘thank you’ to them for being honest, for being forthcoming, but most of all for being part of the wonderful group of constituents I have had the pleasure of the last twenty five years of serving.”
