Mottley: you will walk with dignity
Barbados will not be turned around overnight, but the Barbados Labour Party is certain that it will make things better.
BLP leader Mia Mottley gave that commitment to St. Thomas voters tonight during a meeting at Welchman Hall.
Mottley said the BLP was certain that it could do a far better job than the Democratic Labour Party.
“We need to make sure that we have a working majority that will allow us to make the decisions that will make your life better as fast as we can,” she said.
“It’s not going to be easy overnight but it will get there. And we have come to tell you that you may not get exactly what you want when you want, how you want, but what I can assure you of is that we will make a better path for you.”
She added: “This Barbados Labour Party is committed to turning this country around to giving you that chance at a better life for you.
“It may not allow you to run like [Usain] Bolt in two or three years, but we will allow you to walk like men and women with dignity.”
Mottley urged constituents to re-elect her “best friend” Cynthia Forde in next Thursday’s general election.
She said Forde had worked hard on behalf of St. Thomas residents. (SC)
