11 May Hope and High Energy greet Peter Phillips as Listening Tour arrives in the West
Leader of the Opposition, Dr. Peter Phillips was all smiles as he welcomed the top brass of business, civil society, academia and a host of others to a cocktail reception in his honour at the Hilton, Rose Hall in Montego Bay on Thursday May 4.
The atmosphere was energy charged as the newly appointed party president was warmly received by the gathering.
The high turn out of persons under the age of 35 years was a noted demographic by Dr. Phillips in his brief remarks as he spoke about renewal of the Party, hope for a better Jamaica for all Jamaicans and the future of the 70 plus years old movement.
“The proof of potential of this organisation is evident when it is able to energize the young,” Dr. Phillips told the gathering.
He expressed sincere pleasure about the trip to the west as a part of the Listening Tour.
The tour will take the party president and his team to a series of meetings with business leaders, a youth forum, community and hospital visits, and consultations with strategic political groups. Dr. Phillips and the top brass of the Party will also attend church service in Savanna-la-mar, Westmoreland on Sunday morning.
