St John ‘let down by two PMs’
After being let down by two prime ministers, St John is crying out for representation.
Hudson Griffith, the 45-year-old contractor, who will contest the forthcoming St John by-election on behalf of the Barbados Labour Party (BLP), said that at almost every turn, he has been confronted by disgruntled constituents.
Griffith arrived on stage last night with about two dozen cheering supporters to the strains of Jimmy Cliff’s 1970s hit, Better Days Are Coming. He said St John deserved much better and if given the chance he would turn things around.
“I was in Sargeants Street and I recognised that much has to be done in relation to street lighting, side roads, bus service, garbage collection, all of these are things that representation deals with.
Griffith thinks he can break the stranglehold the ruling DLP has on St.John, which spans more than 50 years. (MK)
