Lashley sees DLP victory


Share post:

“The response has been tremendous”.
This from Minister of Housing and Lands Michael Lashley, who was summing up the feedback St John residents have been giving Democratic Labour Party members, as constituents prepare to vote in Thursday’s by-election.
Lashley told yesterday that so far things were looking good for the DLP and its candidate Mara Thompson.
He said he was on the road from morning, covering areas like College Savannah, Bath Land and Welches so far.
“I can see a tremendous victory for Mara” he said.
Lashley said they had already responded to some concerns from residents regarding housing, noting there is already a budget in the draft Estimates, for housing repairs across Barbados. St John, he said, will not be left out of this plan.
He also touched on the nationality issue raised on the Barbados Labour Party platform noting: “To me it is flying in the face of regional integration”.
The fact that Thompson is St Lucian, has sparked some debate in this campaign.
