Aiming for victory in St. James North

Political newcomer Senator Harry Husbands is confident of victory in the next general election.

St. James North candidate Senator Harry Husbands.

The Parliamentary Secretary in the Prime Minister’s Office said he and his team were doing the hard work and expected to win the St. James North seat for the Democratic Labour Party.

He was speaking last evening at a joint meeting of the DLP’s three St. James branches, held at Queen’s College, Husbands, St. James.

“I want to assure you this evening that all the work that is necessary to return the seat in St. James North for the Democratic Labour Party is now being done,” Husbands said.

“We still have a ways to go, but I am confident that with the team that we have put together that when the bell is rung and that final vote is counted the Democratic Labour party will hold the seat in St. James North.”

The seat Husbands is seeking to win has been held by the Barbados Labour Party’s Rawle Eastmond since 1991. The BLP’s candidate this time is another political first timer, Edmund Hinkson.

Husbands said he had completed the majority of his canvassing and only had a few areas to visit.

He thanked former Prime Minister David Thompson for having the confidence in him to offer him the job of Parliamentary Secretary in the Prime Minister’s Office and current Prime Minister Freundel Stuart for keeping him on the job.

“I have promised and I am working every day to deliver this St. James North seat for the Democratic Labour Party as my way of saying thank you to the party, thank you to the leadership, thank you to you for the part that you have played in my career,” Husbands told the audience. (SC)
