“I want to place on record our deep appreciation to all who journeyed with Senator Akilah Byron-Nisbett as we did the house-to-house canvassing, listening to the people of West Basseterre, hearing them and taking notes of their concerns and clearly we are going to action them,” Prime Minister Harris commented at the end of the successful walkthrough.
Prime Minister Harris said it was important for them to take the message of the Team Unity administration’s plans to further enhance the communities of West Basseterre directly to the people.
“We have good plans to take West Basseterre forward and upward. We have good plans to share the prosperity agenda in West Basseterre, and I want to commend in particular the candidacy of Akilah Byron-Nisbett to the people of West Basseterre,” Dr. Harris added.
Senator Byron-Nisbett stated that while the Team Unity Government did not secure the West Basseterre seat in the last general elections, “we understand still that the West Basseterre community…is part of St. Kitts and Nevis and so we are here to continue to show our support for the people of West Basseterre and we will continue to walk and do what we have to do to meet the people and talk with the people.”
The fourth stop on the Vision 2020 Walkthrough for the Team Unity Government will be in Old Road on Thursday, March 5. Along with West Basseterre, walkthroughs have so far been held in Central Basseterre and St. Peter’s.
