Sandiford-Garner says Payne neglected St Andrew
Irene Sandiford Garner has a question for George Payne.
What have you done for St Andrew lately?
“I am for St Andrew. I have been the candidate for St Andrew. Now is the time to make the arrangement formal,” Garner told a meeting in Belleplaine, St Andrew on Monday night.
The Democratic Labour Party candidate for the eastern parish said it is time for people to turn their backs on Payne, who she said has been around for more than two decades, but had very little to show for his tenure.
“When I speak of St Andrew I get very emotional. It is the only place I will run,” she said of her political aspirations.
As rain started to drizzle, the prospective candidate reminded supporters that even after two losses at the polls, she had never stopped working for the people of St Andrew.
“When you come to work for people you should never stop. A candidate is not paid to represent anyone. No one can compare the ten years of work done by a candidate to the 27 years of non-productivity by an MP.
“You have to recognise when you are being taken for a ride,” she said of Payne’s tenure in the constituency. (BA)
