Members of the Party will be in the constituency this afternoon,
Thursday, August 17, interacting with the people, whom Simon

Meanwhile, the UPP candidate, once again, is expressing

a government minister.
In re-stating his plans for St. Mary’s South, Simon commits to
providing as many opportunities as possible for constituents,
especially the youth.
