MPs say thanks to supporters
Members of Parliament Mia Mottley of the Barbados Labour Party and John Boyce of the Democratic Labour Party thanked voters for returning them to office in last Thursday’s general election, as they held motorcades in their constituencies today.
Mottley’s motorcade – including five trucks and numerous cars packed with supporters – went through the St Michael North-East constituency to the tune of her MIA jingle for the recent election campaign.
She waved to her supporters, who came out of houses and corner shops or stopped on the roadside as they heard the music and horns approaching.
Mottley said she was very happy and humbled that people continued to give her overwhelming support.
She said the motorcade was about thanking people but now, her work in St Michael North-East continues.
“From [today], we get back and continue the work we have been doing for the last few years, especially in these difficult times where people have either lost jobs or are working short time and finding it extremely difficult . . . . That is our priority,” she added.
Meanwhile, Boyce went through various districts in Christ Church South, like Enterprise and Oistins, thanking constituents for re-electing him and pledging to continue serving them.
His entourage included more than 20 vehicles.
BLP newcomer Dwight Sutherland who was voted as the new representative for St George South, also held a thank you motorcade through some St George districts. (AH)
