Santia’s focus on youth

Social Share

At age 36, Santia Bradshaw is the youngest Member of Parliament.
But she is by no means a political neophyte.
The British-trained attorney at law and one-term senator intends to combine the Senate experience with early lessons learnt from her father DeLisle Bradshaw, a veteran politician and former Barbados Labour Party (BLP)?Government minister who entered elective politics in the year she was born.
“Growing up, he would always involve me in the activities of St Michael South East and there would always be political conversations in the house. At first, I never quite understood why he was absent from the house so much, but I later came to realize that he was obviously very heavily involved in the constituency,” she told the SUNDAY SUN.
“There were times when I would actually be taken into the area, left by somebody’s home, and dad would be out canvassing.”
In the February 21 general elections, Bradshaw won the seat once held by her father and has already determined the constituency of youth will be her focus.
