Mayor of Kingston, Senator Councillor Dr. Angela Brown Burke, is calling on shoppers to support law-abiding vendors this Christmas season.

She said the Kingston and St. Andrew Corporation (KSAC) has put a lot of effort into ensuring individuals are able to register and that they have spaces within the various markets and arcades to facilitate vending activities.

“We are promoting those individuals, who have registered. We really want to ask Jamaicans, Kingstonians, to join us, because I think we really have to take a stand in terms of law and order,” she said.

Dr. Brown Burke was responding to questions at a briefing following a monthly council meeting at the KSAC offices in downtown Kingston on Tuesday (December 8).

She said Jamaicans should look for the vendor’s identification card indicating that they are registered with the KSAC.

“Everybody who is legally supposed to be selling has an ID. We want to ask persons to join us in making sure that individuals, who really are playing by the rules, have a chance this Christmas to make a decent profit,” she noted.

“Join us in supporting the legal vendors, in supporting those who have been playing by the rules, those who are in our markets and our arcades,” she added.
