Prime Minister Andrew Holness says he’s tasked the new JLP-caretaker for East Portland, Annmarie Vaz to help lead the development of the parish.
Mr. Holness says for too long, Portland has been placed on the back burner of national development.
East Portland is currently represented in parliament by the Opposition PNP’s, Dr. Lynvale Bloomfield.
The Prime Minister and JLP Leader says he’s confident that Mrs. Vaz will bring East Portland back in the winning column for the governing party.
Meantime, Mrs. Vaz says she’ll do all she can to help develop the parish and secure a win for the JLP.
She’s urging residents of Portland to unite behind her vision for development.
Annmarie Vaz was addressing a JLP meeting to launch her Campaign for East Portland last night.
