Chaguanas Borough Corporation
residents are living the good life.
The constituents of the borough
have very few problems to deal with
and the issues that do arise are at
least better than how things were
At least that is what they would
have you believe.
Housewives, shopkeepers, farmers,
labourers and businessmen all had the
same things to say when approached
by the T&T Guardian recently.
"Things in the borough are good.
We don t have flooding to deal with
like other places and we get water two
days for the week," said Gita, a market
vendor and resident of Chase Village
for the past 30 years.
Gita, like a lot of residents in the
borough, said she was not very inter-
ested in the October 21 local govern-
She said she sees the green, red and
yellow jerseys worn by political party
supporters, the banners hanging from
the outside walls of business places
and ignores them.
"Things are a lot better now than
they were before. I have nothing to
complain about," she said.
The borough, 11 miles south of Port-
of-Spain, is home to 83,516 people.
Most of the residents who spoke to
the T&T Guardian said they were not
interested in local government elec-
Those who claimed to be interested
had a distinct affinity for the colour
green. In Felicity, residents said they
were voting for the candidate from
Jack Warner s Independent Liberal
"Jack do some things in this area
and I can tell you that the people here
going green, said 60-year-old Raj as
he sold bundles of bodi to vehicles
from the sidewalk on Cacandee Road.
"I won t tell you who I am voting
for but if you look, my house is painted
Another Felicity resident, Prudence
Rajkumar, said she would vote in the
election but could not name any of
Rajkumar in fact did not even know
who the last councillor for the area
"I don t know nah. I know I see
Jack here plenty. He comes to the
school and the people here see him
all the time."
One shopkeeper along Munroe
Road, which borders Chaguanas in
the north, said she was happy with
the Chaguanas Borough Corporation s
work in her area.
"For the past two years the roads
have been paved and they fixed the
Another shopkeeper, Nifa Khan,
said she was glad local government
elections had come, as elections usu-
ally meant work would be done to
sway the residents votes.
"They paved this road two days
before the by-election for Chaguanas
West," said the resident, referring to
the July 29 Chaguanas by-elec-
tion which Warner won.
In fact, a lot of the work done
in the borough was initiated only
recently as Warner s ILP and the
incumbent People s Partnership
fought for constituents votes
during the said by-election.
Angie Heeralal, a Cunupia ven-
dor, said she had no complaints,
as her area had seen development
in recent years.
"They fixed the roads. We get
water, electricity and we don t
flood," she said.
Heeralal was one of many res-
idents who had never met her
"I don t know who that person
is. The only person I saw here
was Jack (Warner)."
There were signs of work in
progress in the borough. Pave-
ments were being built along
Munroe Road, stands were being
constructed at a play park in
Cunupia and some empty lots
seemed to have been recently
According to 56-year-old
Prince of Enterprise, though, the
work being done has never been
"They don t do nothing. They
have never done nothing for we.
You see that park right there?"
Prince pointed to a small com-
munity park with a fence deco-
rated by a bright red People s
National Movement (PNM) ban-
ner inviting residents to vote for
the party s representative.
"I have to cut the grass in that
park. If I don t cut the grass,
nobody will do it. When they
(corporation workers) do come,
they would start work and leave
Prince said the Enterprise area
had been ignored by both the
PNM and the United National
Despite a voiced lack of faith
in either party he said he still
intended to vote.
"I will be voting. I want to sup-
port good governance and for this
local government election I want
somebody with principles," he
"I am not going to vote cause
I like a certain party. If I think he
could give me what I want for
my community I will vote for
Jack." See Page A11
Living it up in Chaguanas
On October 21, voters will go to
the polls to select their
representatives for the various
regional corporations in the local
The event promises to be one of
the most keenly contested
elections in decades owing to the
fact that there will be four parties---
the ruling PP, Opposition PNM, MSJ
and the recently formed ILP---going
after the 14 regional corporations
under the new proportional
Continuing today, the T&T
Guardian takes a look at the
corporations where, according to
recent polls, there is expected to
be a tough race for the
Chaguanas and its
districts fell under the
Caroni County Council up
Since the creation of the
Corporation, it has been
controlled by the UNC.
In the borough's first local
government elections in
1992, the UNC won six seats
while the PNM won two.
In 1996, the UNC won all
of the seats in the
corporation, with the PNM
winning one in 1999.
During the 2003 local
government elections the
PNM managed take three of
the borough's eight districts
from the UNC.
That year, PNM councillors
were elected in the areas of
Enterprise North and
At the last local
government elections in
2010, the UNC won six
seats, while the COP and
PNM won one each.
