Despite the Torrential Showers the Joshua Obediah Primary School Room proved much to small a venue To house the over 200 persons that showed up to the first in a series of Townhall Meeting by the Team UNITY administration themed “DISCUSSIONS FOR PROSPERITY” .
The first in the Townhall Meeting Series saw presentations from Junior Minister of Health Hon. Wendy Phipps, Attorney General Vincent Byron Jr, and Hon. Ian Patches Liburd all of whom joined Prime Minister and Consituency Representative the Hon. Dr. Timothy Harris at the head table of the event.
The large audience were able to interact with the Ministers and Prime MINISTER Harris and engaged in lively discussions and questions and answer sessions regarding current issues. The crowd was enthusiastic and were all obviously pleased with the opportunity to interact with the government in such a forum.
