Two forgo motorcades
While some parliamentarians staged motorcades yesterday, two from the Barbados Labour Party were engaged in other pursuits.
Re-elected MP for St Joseph Dale Marshall was on the road walking in support of a good cause. He decided to postpone his motorcade in favour of supporting a breast cancer walk for Felicia Leacock, a community member who was diagnosed with the disease last September.
Marshall, who will be representing St Joseph for a third straight term, expressed disappointment that his party did not win the Government but said it would not stop him from championing the cause of the people of his constituency.
New MP for St George South Dwight Sutherland spent yesterday evening at Ellerton Wesleyan Holiness Church.
“I am of Christian origin and this is the church I grew up in,” he said.
“Also, I have received a lot of support from members of this church and I think the power of prayer works, so I am having a thanksgiving service as opposed to a big party.” (CA)
