Kwakwani NDC elects new leadership

first_imgThe Kwakwani Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC) elected new members to head the body, following the hosting of elections on Wednesday. Juanita Leacock has been elected as the new Chairperson, while Carl Liverpool was elected as Vice Chairman. Following the elections, Leacock said she was proud to be elected to the post and called on the rest of the elected members and the community to work together in an effort to move the community forward.“Our functions only begins after we are sworn in, which will be at a later date setNew Chairperson, Juanita Leacock and new Vice Chairman Carl Liverpoolby the Minister. Today (Wednesday) marks another remarkable achievement, not only for us Councillors Carl Liverpool, Sharmella Sulker Thomas, Maleka Russell, Charles Thom, Faye Navarro Rodriguez and yours truly, but for Kwakwani at large. The task ahead of us is great, and no one-man team can accomplish this. Much is expected from us, but we ask only for one thing and that is Kwakwani team work.”Leacock added that transparency and inclusiveness are high on the agenda for the newly elected officials as they work towards community development.According to the new Chairperson, development of the community is dependent on the efforts of “Councillors, community leaders, groups and all other members of our community near and far. Transparency and inclusiveness is our aim, as we believe that the more people know, the more they understand and can appreciate and with more people involved more can be accomplished  because each person has their own ideas, opinion, skill, experience and understanding.”“We cannot promise that we will be able to please everyone, nor can we say we will be able to achieve all that you expect us to achieve or that we hope to achieve within the year 2018, but we can promise you that we will work to the best of our ability to get as much work done and complete until our time is up and pave the way for long-term development,” she added.Merna Adrian had previously served as Chairperson while Kelvin Daly had served as Vice Chairman of the Kwakwani NDC.last_img read more

The team had to overcome a six point half-time deficit to book their place in the league decider in which they will face Inishowen neighbours Muff.The last time the the two teams met it was the boys of Muff who took the spoils with the narrowest of wins but it was a game that could have gone either way and the final is sure to be an entertaining affair. It would be great for the team to have a good vocal support and full details of venue and time for the final will be posted later in the week.SENIOR & RESERVES.The Reserves and Seniors both suffered defeats in their respective Championships this weekend.The Reserves falling to Naomh Mhuire in the preliminary round decider by a score of 8 points to 6. This ends the Reserves involvement in the Championship for 2012 but they are still in a strong position in the league and will look to get their good form going again when that competition resumes.The Seniors suffered an 8 point defeat at the hands of Termon but will at least have the chance to atone for that loss when Termon come to Straid next Sunday afternoon at 3.00pm.
