MP for the Roseau South Constituency, Joshua Francis, has said he is ready to work in the interest of his constituents, and commended the government of Dominica for recovery efforts following the passage of Tropical Storm Erika, in August 2015.
Speaking in parliament on Wednesday, Francis noted, “I also want to say that I am re-configured, re-wired, re-engineered and re-loaded, and of course re-energized, to act in the interest of the people of the Roseau South Constituency.”
He expressed gratitude for every work done post-Tropical Storm Erika, particularly in the Roseau South Constituency, for the improvement in the roads, cleaning of the drains, dredging of the Loubiere River, the Bath Estate River, Castle Comfort River, and cleaning of the ravines in about eight other areas that were affected by Tropical Storm Erika.”
As regards the construction of the China-funded Newtown Primary School, Francis said, “With the improvement in the physical infrastructure of the Newtown Primary School, we expect better results, better academic performance, and under my leadership, I am hoping to use that facility to touch the constituents, particularly in the Newtown area, whether it is through adult education, and panel discussions, among other activities that will improve the lives of the people of Newtown and the surrounding areas”.
