Candidate says skills education and proper sporting facilities will open avenues for St. Mary’s South youth

The United Progressive Party (UPP) Candidate for St. Mary’s South, Kelvin “Shugy” Simon, has plans to revitalize the vocational centre in that constituency in order to enhance the education of the communities’ youth.

Simon says constituents are looking for avenues to better themselves; but, at present, certain opportunities are lacking.

However, he promises that, once the UPP returns to office, everything possible will be done to make access easier – not only for the people of St. Mary’s South, but across Antigua and Barbuda.

For those persons who are not academically inclined, vocational studies will assist them to reach their goals, Simon says, and therefore the centre will be re-opened.

Further, he says, people must be able to find their niche if they are to excel and to better themselves.

Meanwhile, Simon is lamenting the lack of proper sporting facilities where young athletes can hone their talents.  These youth deserve better, he says, since they have demonstrated their ability to compete against the best in the region and farther afield.

And yet, he says, the Browne Administration appears to have no interest in developing these athletes’ skills.
