NRP to meet with Nationals and Friends of Nevis in New York

Charlestown,Nevis (Friday, December 5th, 2014)-The Nevis Reformation Party (NRP), cognizant that Nevisians in the Diaspora play an important role in the growth of the island of Nevis economically, socially and politically, has mandated itself to dialogue with them as the party positions itself to move Nevis to greater heights in a new dispensation.

Nationals and Friends of Nevis living in or around New York City are invited to hear the Leader of the Nevis Reformation Party (NRP), the Hon. Joseph Parry, Federal parliamentary candidate and Member of the Nevis Island Assembly, Hon. Robelto Hector, and Former Deputy Premier, Mr. Hensley Daniel at a Town Hall meeting at the Cholo meeting place above the bakery on White Plains Road in Bronx, New York from 5pm on Saturday, December 6th.

The New York meeting is following on the heels of a very successful meeting in St. Thomas, United States Virgin Islands last Sunday, November 30 where the Hon. Robelto Hector and Mr Hensley Daniel addressed a number of topics including the present state of the only hospital on Nevis, the vast victimization committed by the Concerned Citizens Movement (CCM) on residents of Nevis, lack of private investments, vast corruption by the Nevis Island Cabinet and the poor economic planning of the CCM led Nevis Island Administration.

One of the organizers of the St. Thomas meeting, Mrs. Dyllis Browne said one issue that was raised during the town hall meeting was the Dialysis Unit which has been sitting at the Alexandria Hospital for over one year, while Nevisians have died or have to go overseas for treatment of kidney failure.

During the meeting, Mr. Ira Martin who was born in Nevis but now residing in St Thomas, offered his services to help set up the dialysis unit in Nevis as he has just put up over 20 dialysis machines in the Virgin Islands.

“I enjoy meeting with Nevisians throughout the Diaspora while listening and noting their concerns, questions and suggestions,” said former Premier the Hon. Joseph Parry. “I have always made it a policy to include the feedback of many nationals in our manifestos, programs and projects and we will continue to use their input to help us (NRP) chart a productive way forward because performance matters …now more than ever before!”
