Simonese Coleman - Falmouth, Trelawny:

"In five years, I am looking to see a brand new town. Since the opening of the pier, there has been continuous development, hence, there is no doubt in my mind that the town is going to be totally transformed."

Ladane Gardner - Chatham, St James:

"I see my community at the same place that it is right now, which is nowhere. It's as if we do not have any representative. There is no community development taking place ... the community is dormant."

Anthony Polack - Content, St James:

"We have to have some jobs for the youth to make progress in the next five years. We have to have more social intervention."

Shenice Jones - Adelphi, St James:

"I see my community having training centres and platforms to help young adults to grow and better themselves, plus classes to help the drop-outs get subjects."

Theresa Eccleston - Wakefield, Trelawny:

"I see the Government coming up with an effective strategy to reduce the crimes; community involvement with school and Church; development of youth clubs; the community centre being refurbished; and better road conditions."
