Are you satisfied with the level of representation you have been getting from your parish council representatives since they were elected in 2012?


Clement Cranston - security officer (St Elizabeth):

"Yes, I would say, so far, so good. They are doing a good job. They have made major improvements in the towns and on the roads."

Alecia Eastwood - events planner (Westmoreland):

"I've watched Negril transformed to what it is today, but it is not all that it can be. I think there's so much more that can be done, but I understand the constraints that come with being in such an office."

Lenore Tucker - tour guide (Trelawny):

"I don't even know my councillor. They keep themselves totally isolated from people because they know they are not repre-senting the people - not one bit."

Ladane Gardner - receptionist (St James)

"I don't intend to be disrespectful, but which councillor? I don't even know if there is a councillor for the division I live in because I have never seen any such person."

France Chambers - Pastor (Hanover):

"I am concerned about the level of representation offered by the elected councillor in my area. My concern has to do with the roads and the general infrastructural development of the communities within the division."
