Listen to the people

This is in response to the article in the Barbados Today dated May14, 2013 on page 3 under the headline Hear Us First.

It talked about the Concerned Creative Citizen Group trying for such a long period in so many different way to reach the Minister of Culture, Stephen Lashley.

I am having a problem understand why is it so hard for any elected official to make the time to sit with the a group of people who have the interest of the country at heart? Isn’t it a little strange that many of the same people could have been the ones who made it possible for you to hold this office? Aren’t you a servant of the people, for the people, elected by the people?

I am quite sure that the Concerned Creative Citizen Group is made up of very knowledgeable people who knows what they are talking about, so as a servant of the people, isn’t it in the best interest of the country for you to make time and listen?

It’s not about you, or what you or other elected persons want. Make it a point to listen very carefully to the voices of the people.
