The public service commission (PSC) is being challenged to declare whether or not the Democratic Labour Party’s (DLP) St Joseph candidate should be allowed to continue teaching at a Government primary school while contesting the next general election. But the man at the centre of the query – Dennis Holder – has declared that he’s ready to give up his 28 years in the teaching service if he’s forced to make a choice. “I am so much interested in seeing better for St Joseph that I am prepared to give up my teaching profession,” the 50-year-old teacher at A. DaCosta Edwards Primary School told the DAILY NATION. “I would sacrifice my profession for my constituents; that’s how strongly I feel about them and how much I care about them. I honestly believe that I have a tremendous amount of input that I can lend to the constituency since it has had none over the years. It is one of the most neglected constituencies in Barbados.”
