Simon says his position has changed, but his role as ‘representative’ of the community is the same – only bigger

REAL NEWS- Kelvin “Shugy” Simon, the recently confirmed United Progressive Party (UPP) Candidate for St. Mary’s South says he has begun campaigning, with a view to returning the constituency to the UPP in the upcoming general elections.

As he goes about this, he says he is also seeking to address a plethora of unresolved issues.

Since Tuesday, Simon says, he has been making his presence felt among the people with whom he grew up in Bolans and the village that raised him.

At present, Simon says, the constituency has no political representation – although Agriculture Minister Samantha Marshall, the incumbent Labour Party Candidate, has been the parliamentary representative these eight years.

He says Marshall’s tenure has produced nothing positive in the constituency, which suffers from poor infrastructure and unemployment.

Like his predecessor, Corthwright Marshall, Simon is lamenting the condition of the constituency’s healthcare facilities. He says the Johnsons Point clinic needs a lot of attention, since the facility was not in good condition the last time he visited.

The UPP Candidate says the building needs renovation and some of the services offered need to be improved.

Meanwhile, speaking about his selection, Simon acknowledges that his position has changed – but the role he has played in the community remains the same, he says.

Has has been representing the people of the constituency for some time, he explains. Now, with his candidacy, he has stepped up his capacity in this regard. He notes that his new role gives him a greater avenue in which to perform and more resources to help in a more meaningful way. Accordingly, he states that he is up to the challenge of taking on and filling Corthwright Marshall’s proverbial “big shoes.”

Simon was confirmed a Candidate on August 21 by the UPP’s General Council, the highest decision-making body outside of its Convention.

    • Good day to you poster on this widely read newspaper online on Antigua/Barbuda- the Antigua Newsroom. I note that every opportunity of a news article about Mr. Kelvin “Shugy” Simon you consistently bring up the church institution that he is or was with.

      It’s clear sir/madam your focus is to destroy the image of the church organization and also of Mr. Simon. I am not sure if this is what you do to all government political leaders the island endorses- Independent, Ruling and Opposition parties but if that is what you do sir/madam, it’s clear you do not have respect for yourself, family and or any religion organization. Let me know if any member of your household immediate and or in your nearest reach, if you personally would like someone to do what you are doing to them IF they should ever get involved in their heart desire that you do not like or approve of? Mind you I said “heart desire” so that you can think above governmental politics. (hope you can).

      If you have something against the one named religion institution you keep repeating by tearing the name down through a soft yet deliberate action to bend it i.e. “bow down” to you for the church to respond by a negative and or a neutral statement privately and or publicly to fall into your trap by either A- to denounce and or B- distance itself from Mr. Simon, you sir/madam are only falling into it. History has proven time and time again when you build a hang man gallows for someone to get hang in, the builder of it end up there and not the one they planned for.

      Whether you believe in God or not, what you are doing only shows that your mental thinking and reasoning is extremely poor, low and shallow. Never raise a fist against the church of God direct and indirectly, you are only heaping hot coals of flames on you and your immediate family. If you are an entrepreneur and or employed by someone else or you’re a retiree, that too is also receiving by your own hands destruction.

    The people of this “Christian society” would like to know. A good practice run to be TRANSPARENT now….since it’s a part of good governance.

    Wonder if the Leeward/Virgin Islands District leader, DR. KENNETH SHARPE will release a statement 🤔
