Blackett: Keep Classic
THE DAVID THOMPSON Memorial Constituency Councils Football Classic should remain.
Even if the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) Government doesn’t.
So says Minister of Social Care and Constituency Empowerment Steve Blackett, who believes that the out-of-season tournament is too significant to community development for it to be disbanded.
“This tournament was designed to unite and ignite community participation away from any partisan political involvement,” Blackett said during the feature address at Sunday’s final between the City – the eventual champions – and Christ Church West Central.
