Collet Area Rep Defends Petrocaribe Pibil Party

Patrick Faber

Tacos, pibil, BBQ, sand, sea, unlimited liquor and dancing to a live band….that’s how Collet Area Representative Patrick Faber does it, thanks to Petrocaribe! The politician has taken some hits for that bash – and has even been criticized by the Chamber of Commerce for spending Petrocaribe money on a one day fete. He was unapologetic then and he is unapologetic now. In fact, he says next time Petrocaribe will take them to Hopkins.

 

Patrick Faber, Area Representative, Collet

“Fifty-thousand was allocated for Collet. We did not wish to have a Mother’s Day celebration Mister Speaker, so what we chose to do instead was to have a family day. We took mothers, we took father, we took the entire family, Mister Speaker on an event that brought the entire family together. Mister Speaker, I don’t how many of them represent a poor constituency like mine; one that is of course riddled with crime and violence Mister Speaker and opportunities that are not like that. They don’t live in front of the Caribbean Sea like one newspaper publisher who opens his window every morning and smells the Caribbean breeze and feels the Caribbean breeze on his skin. So he can write a million headlines and articles. He was one who complained about it. But my leader did not complain; in fact, he is the one who helped us to be able to provide such opportunities for the people of Collet. But for the record Mister Speaker, let me tell them that our fifty thousand dollars was not only spent on the Collet Family Day; in fact, Mister Speaker, if you check the record, you check my Facebook page—they love to follow it—you will see that we had a senior’s day on the fifteen of June. Two hundred seniors Mister Speaker, we took to Bird’s Isle, we had a relaxing day. We shared with them; we had a spiritual service in the morning and Mister Speaker, ten thousand dollars out of our fifty thousand dollars was divided among those residents, the senior residents of our division. Fifty dollars each, a cheque; you could check with the Financial Secretary, if you’d like. Two hundred times fifty—if their math is weak—that equals to ten thousand dollars. Two hundred senior citizens of the Collet division received fifty dollars which they used to buy medication and other little necessities that they had. How could that not be proper use of the Petrocaribe money?”
