Williams confident he’ll win The City for the DLP

Democratic Labour Party (DLP) candidate for The City, Henderson Williams is confident of his ability to claim the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) stronghold for his party in the next general election.

“We are well assured that we are on course to take The City,” said a confident Williams, flanked his party members and supporters this afternoon during a mass canvass in the constituency.

Accompanying the businessman on the campaign trail were the Minister of Education, Science and Technology, Ronald Jones; representative for St Michael West Central James Paul; and the DLP General Secretary George Pilgrim.

Williams was introduced to the constituency in April when it was announced that Patrick Todd would pass on the baton to him.

As a longstanding member of the community, Williams said constituents have been disappointed with the lack of representation exhibited by current parliamentary representative Lt Jeffery Bostic and are looking for solutions to the social issues affecting them.

“They are fed up with persons saying that we are going to do that and then there is neglect for four years,” said Williams.

“I have given my assurance that it is not the type of politics I have signed on to,” he added.

He said that he his team’s focus will be primarily on urban renewal.

Meantime, Minister Jones strongly endorsed Williams as the next representative for The City. Jones, pointing out that the constituency has been neglected, said Williams will be leading the way towards its revival.

“The City is supposed to be that area of the economy that gives flesh to the other parts of Barbados and we recognize that over the years there has been some neglect. This cannot continue if our economy and The City’s economy is to grow,” he said.

“We intend to stay on the path of accuracy and truth and we are not going to be promising these airy fairy things out of the sky. It is impossible in the economic environment that we have been in,” he added.

    Williams confident he will win the city for D.L.P.of course if the yard fouls I know still in the city &he pass some things they will vote for him, ( NO body in their RIGHT MIND after all the hardships that Sinclair & he D.L.P. party put on the people, will vote for more hardships, the prime minister frundel sturt represents my constituency, & would you believe that from the time he became prime minister until today, the 7th Oct 2017 i never see he, & when i call his office or his d.l.p. office num it always busy or he not there ,black people always treat their own like dogs ,the white people form most of the B.L.P.they back the B.L.P.they don’t like we ,but i can guaranty that the B.L.P will not treat blacks the way Sinclair treating we ( he does not care about the opinion or the advice of others, its all about him .I taking my chance with the B.L.P.to hell with frundel & sinclair.

    The DLP is doing very poorly and you will win ? It is OK to talk because you figure that you must say something to indicate that you are serious. You should say that you are hoping that the voters will see you as a worthy candidate and elect you as their representative not the FOOLISHNESS about you are going to win. You do not know that . It depends on the voters. Humble yuhself that you.may be exalted. Mr. Bostic iss a good candidate and a City man. He will not be a push over so get real.

Look who is speaking about promises and that Bostic had 4 years and did nothing and Todd had the 4 before him, what he did? your party had the reigns for close to 10 years, what have you all done and so bold, you`re asking for 5 more years, I know that bajans can take punishment with a smile but this is too much.

    I thought that Patrick Todd should be the one to introduce Mr Williams to the constituency seeing that he was the last person that represent the constituency. The brother believe that he can win. Seeing that you are a business MAN. Every week give each house $500 until election day. I think that you might stand a chance. The reason WHY Todd DID not you win back the seat ,he was to cheap. Some constituency you have to share out money in other to win . Some people CALL it buying Votes. In Jamaica and St Vincent you called them HUNGRY PEOPLE.

    He spending nuff money in the community and elections ain’t call so you know what will happen. However, if they saying the city neglected – which government in power? Not his party the DLP? So who neglecting the city? The last time people were fooled by these incompetent idiots that the BLP was going to privatize transport and sell this and that and send home workers that they voted this government back in, and then what happen, they did everything they were accusing the BLP of. People don’t let money or home boy talk fool you all, they have ruined this country and now they want to take it further into the ground. They must be voted out. People wake up to the realities of what has happened in this country under the DLP government.
