    So BLP candidates does actually still contest against each other to see who will be nominated to get beat by Mara? If it was me I would be fighting not to be nominated.

      On a serious note though if it wasn’t Mia, it’s time for St John to step out of that DLP thing and play the game with the politicians that they know the party that is going to win, in that way, see if anything can be done for st,John. We have to get Smart and ride the ship like anybody else. Use them like how they use us. Vote them in and out and stop worrying about party. Ride the parties to suit, plain and simple.

    Mara can easily be beaten. She’s only there because of the Barrow and Thompson legacy. If the correct strategy interfaced with a new and promising future is deployed, the people of St. John will go for what’s better for them. Example. A Four roads shopping Center inclusive of a supermarket like a Jordan’s or a Channel along with a fresh fish and a clothing store. This can empoy about 200 people and encourage shoppers from St. Joseph, East St. George , the entire t. John and north and even central St. Philip A few restaurants, Invite businesses such as Insurance, a medical support center to the northern section, The idea is to stimulate growth and employment Transportation will fall in automatically. Let the people of St. John know that they’re important and will be treated as such. Institute a skills training program for the youths, Carpentry, Plumbing, Masonry, Plastering and painting, Nursing and cooking. Not every one will become a lawyer or a doctor or a professional. St. John is a beautiful and resourceful parish. Showcase it.
