The people of St. John’s Rural West want better representation and not the usual “what-can-I-do-for-you” question on the eve of a general election, says Senator Richard Lewis, the United Progressive Party (UPP) Candidate for that constituency.
Lewis says this old chapter in the Antigua Labour Party’s handbook is played out, and the people are fed up. In contrast, he says, he and the UPP are willing to take this country and the people forward and into prosperity.
The Candidate notes that Rural West constituents took a chance on Londell Benjamin, who has failed to perform. Accordingly, taking a chance on Benjamin’s replacement – Senator Gail Christian – would also be a mistake, Lewis warns, since she is a member of a party that does not care about the people – only about self-enrichment.
Lewis declares that he has a track record on which the people can rely, accomplishing things out of office with limited financial resources. Once he is given the chance, he promises, he will get even more done for the people’s benefit.
