Supporters flocked to the United Progressive Party’s (UPP) small business pull-up held in St Mary’s South on Saturday.
The event came ahead of the pending by-election due in the constituency within the coming months.
Parliamentary representative hopeful, Kelvin ‘Shugy’ Simon, told Observer yesterday of the event’s success.
“It was remarkable. It came in like a mini motorcade…there were a lot of people from all over the country,” he said.
“The main purpose of the event is to inject direct cash into small businesses…In a given day, a small village like Urlings, Johnsons Point, Crab Hill, these vendors don’t see that injection of cash coming in on a regular basis,” he stated.
