Getting a foot in the door
St John by-election candidates Mara Thompson for the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) and Hudson Griffith for the Barbados Labour Party are hot on the campaign trail.
And both of them have been reporting a warm reception in the parish, with Thompson saying she was being treated like a queen and Griffith being humbled by the response to his message.
The St John by-election was called following the October 23 death of the late Prime Minister David Thompson.
From last week, both candidates have been heavily campaigning in areas such as Sherbourne, Gall Hill, Sargeant Street and College Savannah seeking to place their fingers on the pulse of the people.
