Moore ready to tackle both jobs
Barbados Labour Party (BLP) candidate for St George North, Toni Moore, is again making the case that her commitment to labour, being general secretary of the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU), will not be compromised by elective politics.
In fact, Moore disclosed that her assured independence was the unyielding conditionality upon which the decision to contest the election was based, and one which she intended to uphold.
Speaking during a spot meeting at Roach Village, St George Thursday night, Moore argued that with the prognosis on unemployment still very bleak, she was cognisant of a very important role to play.
Moore explained that these conditionalities have been baked into her candidacy and that there was a full understanding of each person’s position.
“I say to you, and I know that the Prime Minister can confirm this, because this was a discussion, I had with her, when I was offered the opportunity to join the BLP. I was offered the opportunity in the name of the very independence of the representation I give to the working people of Barbados. I said very firmly to the Prime Minister that if I am to say, yes, you must consider something: You must also consider that if I come in and things don’t work out, the same door that was my entrance will be my exit and if that is to be the case, that will do more damage to your party than letting me in,” said Moore.
