Below is a summary of the main points:

1. Investment and skills training

2. Rehabilitate roads and bridges in communities to reduce challenges to travelling

3. Develop water source and major catchment facilities throughout the parish.

4. Work within communities to improve housing.

5. Work with local farmers to increase production of cotton, kola nuts, and plantain farming in various areas across the constituency to foster job creation and increase revenue for both men and women as export opportunities will be sought for produce.

•Upgrading of Westmoreland oval with perimeter fencing, seating facilities and light for night usage of field.

• Submit a proposal to the Ministry of Health for a private/public partnership which would facilitate a private wing being added to the hospital and surrounding communities of Annotto Bay as a means for generating income.
