First District Representative, Hon. Andrew Fahie will file his report on his performance over the past year for the first time since becoming Premier and Minister of Finance following General Elections last year.
The Annual First District Report and New Year’s Party will take place on Saturday, January 11 at 7:00 p.m. on the Cappoon’s Bay Recreation Grounds.
Residents can expect updates on various programs and initiatives taking place in the District including, repairs to the infrastructure and recreational areas, scholarship and services for entrepreneurs, the restoration of crucial facilities and much more.
“Every year, for the past 12 years we have done this report. This is a time for me as the First District Representative, no matter what other capacity that I am in, to report my stewardship over the past year and to tell the people what they can expect in the coming year,” Hon. Fahie said in a release.
Despite his new capacity as Premier Hon. Fahie said that he is committed to the people of the First District who are his first-line employers. “Although I am the First District Representative first, I am also going to ensure that District 1-9 get their fair share,” Hon. Fahie stated.
These meetings according to the District Representative are important because it illustrates that he is working on the behalf of the people.
“People see things happening and if you don’t communicate to them, to let them know that this is one of the initiatives that you were behind, they might think it just happened or someone else who didn’t do any work at all will pop up and look to take the credit. So this is a business that while you are helping, you also have to report and make sure the needs of the people are met,” Hon. Fahie said.
The Premier added, “We have had some great accomplishments over the last ten months since taking office. We want the people of the first district and well-wishers to come out. It will be a short reporting and then we will have a good time together in the New Year with the first district annual party,”
