Husbands to contest BLP nomination in St James South

Management consultant Sandra Husbands today declared she would be contesting the Barbados Labour Party’s (BLP) nomination for the St James South constituency, rubbishing suggestions that she was not being considered for the race.

Her announcement came on the heels of recent statements by her political opponent Donville Inniss, the sitting MP for the seat, that the Opposition would not field Husbands this time around.

“Mr Inniss would need to say where he got that from. Within the Barbados Labour Party what we do is that we have nominations and I am stepping forward for the nomination,” Husband said on the Sunday edition of Down to Brass Tacks.

Husbands said she has been working in the constituency over the last five years and is satisfied with her contribution to the residents.

“We have done a number of things, for example, we did skills and business training in care for the elderly, cooking, housekeeping, small business start-ups etc. We started walking in the constituency and then once a month we would have a breakfast walk.”

Husbands added that the decision was ultimately in the hands of the people but she was prepared to put up a strong fight to offer solid representation.

“I am open to their [constituents of St James South] support …because I really want to serve, because I think that Barbados needs a new form of governance and it is important that we bring to office not only people that have ability, but more importantly people who genuinely care about what happens to people and therefore this is why I have spent the time to prepare myself to be able to give that type of service,” she said.

    Since when contesting a nomination is the same as running in an election ?

    Ms Husbands, good luck. We need to get rid of that talkative buffoon Donville Inniss who is an embarrassment. The man is a semi-literate fool.
    Obviously Stuart cannot control the idiot.

      So you are the most brilliant man in the world i take it, as you seem to have the opinion that everyone is an idiot or a buffoon as you put it.A word to the wise take a good look in the mirror if you can stand yourself, and then determine if you really want to indulge in name calling,by the way lots of people think you are a fool as well,not sure if a semi literate one though.

    Now to Sandra Husbands heard you on the radio the other day and in my opinion your motives were steeped in the play of politics and emotion.Your behavior could also be construed as being rude,it is amazing that you seem to have all the answers from where you sit or stand, and yet with all the rhetoric you have tried to unseat Donville to no avail, should this be an indication to you that the people of that constituency simply are not impressed or interested in you? Rather than behaving like a desperate sycophant whose intention is to once again gain party favor consider your ways and be wise,you are simply a waste of time on the political landscape and in my opinion please quit as you are far from being ahead.

    Like all political persons who trying to gain entry into a political party and then the house of assembly, they alway pretend to care for those who they claim they will represent. But once they are successful, it’s a brand new world for them but the same old one for those who was given the false hope of a better representative. Nevertheless, time will tell what will be for this candidate.

    The political system is not reliable.The two political parties maintain the same neo-colonial mindset. Even if a politician might mean good—and I feel some meant good before they were politicians and when they get into the system they realize that the system is broken..and that system of governance needs to change.

    Sandra Husband. I would not be like the others and label you wrongfully. You have much to offer Barbados along the lines of integrity and true service. However, you can only do it as leader of the Democratic Labour Party and not a follower of the Froon Loonie Clown bandwagon brigade. Bajans recognise to the fullest what the two serving parties real interests ‘lie’. We want to see the back of this DLP forever, but still, we do not want to see any of the fronts of the BLP either. After all, six is half a dozen and however you flip nasty you always get dirt. We know that you have to talk, but fancy words and rhetoric no longer impress. Stuart Doolittle taught us how to hate and dislike big fancy words. So can you just keep it simple and layman?
