Jonel Powell

Constituency 2


Keeping the Promise - of empowering our people.

At this juncture in our nation’s economic development, it must become second nature for all of our people to develop a skill, a talent, an ability, or the capacity that will make us capable of doing more.

The people of St. Kitts and Nevis possess the creativity, innovation and resilience to make a difference and effect needed change in the face of adversity.

“Strong people stand up for themselves, but stronger people stand up for others.”

It is my duty
to serve!

I remain focused and committed to finding creative means to represent my people.
