Kirk Humphrey, the Barbados Labour Party Candidate, who will contest the St Michael South seat of Prime Minister Freundel Stuart in the next election, says he is fighting for the people instead of trying to beat the Prime Minister.
Humphrey, who won the BLP nomination last month, was canvassing residents on Reece Road, Brittons Hill, when he told Barbados TODAY that beating his political rival will be secondary to his interest in constituency residents.
“Right now I’m focused on the people and nothing else,” he said midway through his walkabout, accompanied by a team of constituency Party supporters.
“I am not here to run against anybody, I am here to run for the people, so at the end of the day it doesn’t matter who I am running against because I am not thinking about that. I am running solely for the people of St Michael South.
“I just want to spend time understanding what their needs are, their challenges, getting to know the constituency a bit better and to focus on that, and to hope that the message that we bring, and the relationship that we develop will be enough to help us go past the line,” Humphrey said.
