Hyatt needed for job creation, says City hopeful

People living in the City are depending on the construction of the Hyatt Hotel to get much-needed jobs.

So said the Democratic Labour Party’s candidate, Henderson Williams, as he rebuked people for attempting to block the construction of what is to be a multi-million dollar tourist resort in the City.

Speaking tonight at Brittons Hill, St Michael, Williams, a businessman and first-time contender, said persons living in New Orleans, Green Park Lane, London Bourne Towers and other City areas were anxiously awaiting the green light for the hotel to get underway.

“You have a situation where people want to work and you are going to block it and then you are going to turn around and say you care about people,” he declared, in reference to the injunction filed in court by David Comissiong against the construction of the property.

A fired-up Williams told the gathering that Comissiong was a “first cousin” of Barbados Labour Party leader Mia Mottley.

“Give me a break!”  he cried as he said that the BLP should be “penalised for blocking development in this country”. (MB)
