On Friday April 4, 2014 The Member of Parliament for North Abaco, Renardo Curry, hosted an island social gathering with residents of Little Abaco in the North. This was well received by the residents as most of them turned out at his Mount Hope Constituency Office.
Residents, retired police officer and Pastor Zike MacIntosh of Wood Cay, were happy about this event, saying they hope the meetings will continue since many of them are unable to make trips to Marsh Harbour to meet with their Member of Parliament.
Little Abaco Pre-School Principal, Anita Russell of Crown Haven, said that she is happy and celebrated the occasion, while self-employed fisherman Don Role made mentioned that he hopes the high ethical standards of Hon. Curry’s mission and purpose continued to be fulfilled.
Community Against Crime Commissioner, Wilton Saunders, said that the meeting was very significant in bridging the gap to North Abaco youth. Local Government Chairman, Leslie McIntosh of Fox Town and Business owner Jonathan Curry of Mount Hope, both commented that they were happy with the evening’s turnout.
As the evening continued more people came from Cedar Harbour to sit and chat with Mr. Curry as he discussed practical solutions to some problems the community faces.
Refreshments were served, provided by two of great women of the community- Andrea Thompson and Gwendolyn Bain.
In a brief interview with Mr. Curry he said that things are now being put in place to provide not just employment but to bring a great deal of infrastructural development which will take North Abaco to the next level of sustainability.
