Potter goes to bat for the Hispanic community after land assigned to its Baseball Association is put to other use

9

Gladys Potter is speaking up for the Hispanic community after a piece of land reportedly given to them to construct their Baseball Association’s headquarters is now being used for other purposes.

Potter, the United Progressive Party (UPP) Candidate for St. John’s Rural South, says that, over two years ago, the Baseball Association was given a piece of land in the Creekside area to construct its home.

According to her, members of the Association, including the president, were informed by Sports Minister Daryl Matthew, that the decision to give them the land was made by the Cabinet.  (Matthew is also the parliamentary representative for the area.)

Potter says that some preparation had to be made to the site; but due to the pandemic, the Association was not able to have it done.

Speaking on the Morning Bush Tea Show, the Candidate says it appears that the Government has taken back the land, since housing is now being developed in the area.

Potter says she finds it unfair that no consultations were held with the Association and there was no notification that something else was being done with the land.  Accordingly, she says this type of injustice must cease immediately.

Further, Potter is asking why the people of the Hispanic community are being treated with such utter disrespect. REAL NEWS

    • No one knows this better than Richard Lewis, who was/is sidelined for leadership because his wife is Jamaican. Whenever UPP lose, it´s either ´foreigners´or ´the election was bought´

      That being said, I hope the Association gets this issue sorted out so that they can build a proper headquarters.

  1. She has no facts just speculating. Interestingly the UPP gave them no land and always made clear they think foreigners, if even picked up, must sit at the bank of the bus. Under UPP their right to vote was further curtailed since the UPP supporters argued its due to this segment, UPP almost lost the 2009 elections

  2. Y’all must stop with this forginer bull shit and stop back party … Young people today nar back party … we open our eyes .. so you blind bartimus can continue back party and don’t see wrong from right

  3. When they do not have a policy of their own, they jump on anyone’s bandwagon.
    Worst opposition party ever. They are not even leading in opposition. They follow the crowd whomever that may be and wherever they may go. Anywhere the wind blows, it is cool with them.

  4. This lady has been doing things in the community before she decided to enter Politics. One of the things I did not realize. Antigua and Barbuda were willed to the Labor Party and their supporters only. Only Labor Party Politicians are allowed to run for Public Offices and the hell with all others.I am putting my hat into the Political Arena.I am going to win my seat by the people,of the people,for the people.You may try and stop me just do not stand in my way.

    • Ok King Lyadd Lovell Limpy Joe 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 no one needs to stand in your way because there is NO WAY for you

  5. Gladys Potter CANNOT bat for Herself much less to bat for others. Gladys Potter is an AIRHEAD. UPP attract all DUNCE.
