Jamaica News, March 7, 2018 – Montego Bay Craft Vendors Stage Controversial Election against Sitting President

St James, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) – Over one hundred disgruntled craft vendors who operate out of the Old Fort Craft Market in Montego Bay, St James, on Tuesday host an Annual General Meeting after 12 years and held a controversial election against the now sitting president.

The disgruntled craft vendors stated that the market is run-down, lacks in tourist traffic and lacks proper representation when it comes to the ship Pier or even the Jamaica Tourist Board.

Our news team visited the market and witnessed the election which was supervised by two popular Justice of the Peace. The election was contested among three popular, hard-working craft vendors; Nicola Phillips, Byron Chung and Donna Roadway.

Marilyn Faulkner and Brian McNeish, the two leaders at the market, told our news team that since the appointment of the present President, they have not had any sort of official meeting and she is reluctant in representing the craft market in the proper way.

According to both leaders,  the President has been discovered carefree in the post, therefore, they have now taken it upon themselves to vote for a new president.

They pointed out that she spends most of her time in the USA and over the past years there has been no form of tourist traffic at all in the Market.

Despite a low turn out in voters, the election ended with Nicola Phillips being voted in as the new President for the Old Fort Craft Market.
