Gladys Potter, the United Progressive Party (UPP) Candidate for St. John’s Rural South, is making a pledge to complete the community centre that has stood unfinished for over a decade.
The centre was started by a past UPP representative. It remains unfinished, Potter says, because the Antigua Labour Party incumbent, Darryl Matthew, has not seen it fit to complete the project for the benefit of the constituents.
She charges that Matthew continues to fail the people of St. John’s Rural South and, yet, is advocating for them to re-elect him.
While others have failed the people, Potter says, she will see the centre through to completion, and residents will have a place where many uplifting activities and events will be held for their benefit.
Meanwhile, Potter also speaks about a bathroom facility in proximity to the unfinished community centre, which has also been left in a state of disrepair.
She is asking whether ALP members take satisfaction in seeing public structures go to ruin and whether they care about the well-being of the people at all.
