Medic promises to serve until his 'last breath'
Barbados Labour Party (BLP) candidate for Christ Church West, Adrian 'Medic' Forde.
One candidate is promising that even if he has to breathe his last breath serving the people in his constituency he will do whatever it takes.
Candidate for Christ Church West Adrian 'Medic' Forde made this assertion on May 22nd, during a Barbados Labour Party (BLP) meeting in Silver Hill, Christ Church.
“Representation is not only about talking the talk but it is about helping the people [in your constituency] as well. I am a product of Christ Church and I understand the people of Silver Hill. I have been here with you in your trials. This is no time to waste. Give yourself a chance and use me as the medium to chart progress. I will speak to your spirit even if I am on my last breath,” he said passionately to a moderate crowd mostly decked in red shirts and carrying hand-held placards.
Forde, a pharmacist by profession, said that he wanted the opportunity to champion the cause of the people in his home ground because he understood that he was their potential voice.
“You must be a part of the economic pool. The manifesto has something for all of you. Politics is not about sounding good and dressing in Armani suits it's about [representing the people],” he added.
The BLP he said, was committed to changing the lives of ordinary Barbadians and it was unfortunate that the constituency with the Minister of Youth, Stephen Lashley, had the highest unemployment levels.
“I am willing to put myself on the line because I would like to help raise employment levels,” he promised to loud shouts in agreement.
