No. 130 Friday, August 20, 2010
Opposition Leader Portia Simpson Miller is tentatively slated to be the guest speaker at the Eastern Hanover combined divisional and constituency conference, to be held at Sandy Bay in the parish.

   The conference will be held on August 29 and will see the holding of four private sessions. The election of officers for both the division and constituency will take place during this session.
   Eastern Hanover currently has three divisions, headed by Wynter McIntosh - Chester Castle division (Councillor), Derek Foster - Hopewell division (Councillor), and Lloyd Hill - Sandy Bay division (Councilor and Mayor of Lucea).
   Other PNP stalwarts that are scheduled to address the conference are Derrick Kelher, Roger Clarke, Henry MeCurdy, Ian Hayles and constituency chairman and Dr. DK Duncan.
   Duncan told the Western Mirror that a decision was taken to consolidate all the conferences so as to have everyone in unison, which will enable issues to be discussed among delegates and stakeholders.
   He emphasized the work that he has already taken in the constituency, which includes the farmer’s incentive programme, education enablement, housing assistance and cultural and sports disbursement.
   On another matter, Duncan said representation was being made for the rehabilitation of some roads in the Eastern Hanover constituency and that money has since been allocated. He, however, pointed to what he called “an unnecessary delay”, which he will be looking into.
   For her part, the Opposition Leader is expected to speak on current national issues, which include the Manatt, Phelps and Phillips affair plus other issues, which are expected to rile up the expected large crowd.
   Eastern Hanover currently has all three divisions represented by People’s National Party councillors.
   Dr. Duncan defeated the JLP’s Barrington Gray in the last general election held in September 2007.
