Festival fever

blpgregorynichollscanvassBarbados Labour Party candidate for St. Michael North West, Gregory Nicholls, has indicated that one of the major platform planks of his campaign will be the creation of a “Black Rock Festival for Sports and the Arts”.

Nicholls made this disclosure earlier today during an interview with Barbados TODAY.

The former government senator said his campaign has been going excellently so far, with his team having been able to roll out the initial phase of their plan efficiently and flawlessly.

Nicholls, who is an attorney-at-law, pointed out that this initial phase involved the putting up of posters across the entire constituency and the collection of data in relation to issues and concerns people have at the national, constituency and personal level.

He said the data would be used to better address people’s concerns as a prospective parliamentary representative.

Nicholls further stated that last Saturday he was been able to complete a mass canvassing exercise in Free Hill and St. Stephen’s Hill.

He pointed out that during the past week he had been able to mobilise canvassing teams in all ten polling divisions.

The first-timer candidate with considerable experience as a platform speaker from previous elections, said the next phase of the campaign would involve constituency meetings at which he would address the specific concerns of each community.

He however pointed out that there will be a national meeting on Tuesday in Deacon’s Farm and thereafter meetings will be held every night across the constituency. (NC)
