The work never stopped.
In fact, St. Philip South MP Adriel Brathwaite said when the election bell was rung, it was just a matter of continuing to do what he was doing.
Brathwaite was part of a large contingent of MPs and party hopefuls from the Democratic Labour Party camp who descended on the Treasury this morning to pay their deposits.
“My constituency is no different from the rest of Barbados in terms of what are the challenging issues. One of the challenging issues obviously is unemployment; we would like to find more employment for some of our young people. It is a challenge because it is a challenge in Barbados.
“So you will find that my constituency mirrors Barbados in terms of its challenges. We’ve done well in terms of housing. There are a couple areas in terms of road infrastructure that we would have liked to have gotten accomplished that we didn’t get accomplished. It is no different from the rest of Barbados,” said the MP who has also held the position of Attorney General for the last two-and-a-half years.
Brathwaite said too that his constituency office was ready for campaign activities.
“I’m ready and I’ve been ready for a couple weeks. My team is there and we are eager. We have a meeting in Rices on Sunday and after that I will be doing my spot meetings. We are out canvassing and as a matter of fact my team is already ahead of me, so I am going to hit the road now. I am going into Crane and spend the day on the road, get the opportunity to sit down in people’s homes one on one with them, so I am quite prepared,” he stated. (LB)
