Dave Cumberbatch Passionate, committed and enthusiastic. These words embody Dave Cumberbatch the Democratic Labour Party’s candidate for the constituency of St. Peter. “Chief”, as he is affectionately known throughout St. Peter, is a practising Attorney-at-Law specialising in the areas of Family, Land and Criminal Law. Dave has always been community oriented. As a former police officer, he was attached to the Community Policing Department in both Barbados and the Cayman Islands. He is fervent in his work with the youth as he believes that every opportunity must be explored to mould and influence their lives positively. He has facilitated this process through his work with the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) Programme. Dave’s success is not limited to his work as an attorney-at-law or in law enforcement. An avid sportsman, he represented the Barbados Senior team and the West Indies youth team in cricket.
He has the distinction of being the most successful Barbados youth team captain. This devout Seventh-Day Adventist is committed to the development of St Peter. He plans to leverage all resources at his disposal to provide opportunities for the youth, the elderly, special interest groups, NGOs and businesses in the parish. His desire is to contribute to the creation of a prosperous and safe environment for all residents and visitors. He believes that there is a solution to every problem. He is of the view that if we take the time to listen and connect with everyone whether young, middle-aged or senior, all of life’s challenges can be conquered. It is this passion to assist people at all levels that has driven Dave to offer himself as a candidate for St Peter so as to provide representation at a higher level.
