Mrs. Kay R. A. Bacchus-Baptiste has been selected to represent the constituency of West St. George in the next general elections, having been selected on the constituency level and later unanimously ratified by the Central Committee of the New Democratic Party (NDP).
The Party said in a statement that it welcomes Mrs. Bacchus-Baptiste as a great representative of the people.
Commenting on the ratification, President of the NDP, Dr. Godwin Friday said, “The people of West St. George have chosen well. Kay is someone they can trust to work hard and deliver for them and the country. I know that she will work endlessly, not just for the people in West St. George but also to ensure that we fulfill our vision of creating a country that works for all. We should never lose sight of the fact that we are one nation, one people, one Vincy!”
Commenting on her ratification, Mrs. Bacchus-Baptiste expressed her delight in being given the opportunity to represent the West St. George constituency noting that “I have a vision of breaking barriers – building the future. When I think of barriers I mean unemployment of youths in West St. George, poor roads in the constituency, and most of this because the constituency is plagued with a lazy representative and a government that doesn’t care.”
As to her activities since ratification she declared “I have hit the ground running, I’ve been on walkabouts in the constituency, and I’ve also had a town hall meeting on Thursday October 5th. My approach is not to sit in my office and fool myself that I know what the people want, but rather to go out and meet them, find out from them the issues in their communities and together we develop solutions.”
According to the NDP statement, Mrs. Kay Bacchus-Baptiste is a lawyer who spent much of her life doing service for the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines and it is for this reason that we are going ‘_all the way with Kay_.’
