Junior Grandison, Gleaner Writer
GOVERNING People's National Party (PNP) in its bid to win
as many seats as possible in Westmoreland and Hanover in the
upcoming Local Government election slated for June 19, has
embarked on a training programme for its polling division
workers, according to Delano Dowdie, Region 6 Political Organiser
with special responsibility for training. He was speaking
to The Gleaner at the Petersfield Primary School last Wednesday
where he was conducting a training exercise for PD workers
from the Petersfield division.
Dowdie said that the polling division workers have a special
and critical role to play so that the PNP returns victorious
in this region. He said the PD workers have helped the party
to be victorious at the polls in 1997, 1998 and in 2002. He
believes this election will not be an easy one, so polling
division workers will have to do their work well in the field,
taking a scientific approach so that come June 19 all the
PNP supporters in the region will go out and vote.
said he was very pleased with the training exercise at Petersfield
Primary and was equally impressed with the turnout of workers
and their level of participation in the training.
now up to the PD workers to go out there in their respective
communities and to put in practice what was imparted to them
here this afternoon," he said.
the PNP control four of the seven polling divisions in Hanover
while in Westmoreland they control all 14 divisions.
