Prospect MLA Austin Harris regularly makes the rounds of his constituency with calls and visits, however since the onset of the COVID19 Pandemic, he has been seen making regular deliveries of Food Vouchers to the elderly and families in need. More recently he and his team visited 196 homes delivering disposable protective masks in an attempt to keep the community safe. While planning to visit each home individually, MLA Harris was grateful for his close connection to the residents of his home district.
"In Prospect I have established a number of WhatsApp Community Groups that allow my constituents to not only stay connected with me but also each other," Harris shared. "Prior to COVID19, our community chat served well as a neighborhood watch tool, but since then it's been very useful to send out official government advisories to large groups of people which enables them to stay informed."
While respecting social distancing, Councillor Harris also got to check in on his constituents, who are also his neighbors. "A great many have coped well and have understood and supported the life saving measures of the Government," stated Councillor Harris. "Others however feel frustrated and thus it is important to always have an open line of communication."
