The Barbados Labour Party candidate for St John, Charles Griffith, has promised change and to make constituents proud of their district.
Griffith’s promise came last night as he addressed the opening of his district campaign office in Clifton Hall.
“We don’t have a structured programme for sports in St John. We don’t have a cultural presence in St John, but it will come, because change will come to St John,” he said.
Recalling that he has been working on a professional and voluntary basis with young people of the constituency since the 1990s, the St John-born candidate said that he is familiar with the needs of the area.
“My candidacy is not one that I just jump up overnight and decided that I should be the candidate for St John. I believe I have something to give to the people of St John. I believe I have the right to make people in St John walk with pride because it is not happening anymore.”
“This journey is not my own. On the 23rd of October in 2016, 85 people decided that I should be the candidate and every single day that I canvass across the length and breadth of St John I am lifted by the spirit of the people and those who encourage me to do the right thing and change what is happening in St John, and I intend to do that,” he added.
