Neil Rowe will defy all odds and take down incumbent Chris Sinckler in the St Michael North West when the elections are called.
This was the rallying cry from his mates in the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) at the launch of his constituency office in Deacons, St Michael, last Saturday evening.
Joe Atherley, the BLP St Michael West candidate, said he was confident that Rowe had what it took to bring home the prize.
Party leader Mia Mottley, who declared the office open, said she too believed he had the constituency in hand.
Stating that Rowe was the opposite of Sinckler in just about every aspect, Mottley said the BLP hopeful had brought a caring to the campaign that was “unique, special and sincere”, and had what the people wanted.
Dr Clyde Mascoll, the BLP’s economic advisor, said Sinckler was a “square peg in a round hole” and Rowe was ideal to challenge him because he was the exact opposite to the incumbent.
Mascoll’s diagnosis was that Barbados was “comatose” and just surviving. He urged voters to put the country first and understand that its future was in their hands. (YB)
