Potter says she is working to help reduce the high unemployment in Rural South, especially among young people


REAL NEWS- The high unemployment rate in St. John’s Rural South – and across the country, in general – is of concern to Gladys Potter, the United Progressive Party (UPP) Candidate for that constituency.

The rate of unemployment is reported to be above 20 percent and is impacted by the number of hotel workers who have been out of work since the COVID-19 pandemic.

Potter is very concerned about the high percentage of Rural South youth, in particular, who are desperately in need of a job. She is worried that the continued rise in the cost of living will have a negative mental and emotional impact on these persons.

The UPP Candidate says she is doing everything in her power to assist constituents who are seeking employment to find work, and has she devised a programme in this regard.

  1. Keep up the good work Gladys Potter, job wise the South needs regeneration.

    Under the ABLP, the unemployment rate is way too high percentage wise when you measure it up against the rest of the country.

    One question though, are there any ABLP CABINET members living in the constituency/area?

    Maybe this is why there’s a distinct lack of commitment from them to local Antiguans …

  2. Antigua people starving, but the ALP giving out amnesty and work permits to foreigners of every description. Call de election now!

  3. This is great to hear. Too often politicians only show up in communities for photo ops right before an election. If members of all opposition parties spent time implementing helpful small scale community programmes continuously, they would have a better idea of the needs of their constituents, and persons might be more willing to vote for them to fix bigger problems.
    Would be good to know exactly what her programme does though…

  4. Meanwhile back at the ranch…Dame Night embarrassed her 2x on his show.

    “LIAT is not important”

    “Mrs. Potter you sure bout dat? Liat is important….maybe you weren’t told”

    Why UPP keeping the icecream 🍦 scooper in the dark?? Dem really want to embaRASS she big time.

    Old girl nah even know she own party policy on FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT. Truthfully she nah know what FDI even mean.

    An to de time Night whisper the answer in she headset (for the public to hear), she head EMPTY so much, dat she still couldn’t string 2 sentences together.

    Gladys your UPP posse out to UNDERMINE you, Cortwright and Pringle.

    Tek heed.

    • @ SHERFIELD, you sound and act like a “generational” ABLP supporter … am I right, or am I right?

  5. You sound and act like the CONVICTED PEDOPHILE IAN MAGIC HUGHES or the GUN-SHOOTING married man that UPP chose over Shawn Nicholas.

  6. Gladys Potter head EMPTY EMPTY. She need to stick to icecream 🍦 scooping. Clearly my gyal nah ready fu govern this country. That can change possibly if she wants it to change!

    But y King Lyadd Lovell Limpy Joe directly EXCLUDE GLADYS from the UPP POLICY MEETINGS??? She couldn’t even repeat some keywords about FDI.


    EMPTY more than the Ratta Condominium UPP CAN’T PARK. Coz at least that have in plenty ratta

  7. Keep up the good work Gladys. This country needs good governance. Honest people that are committed and getting things done properly and will not be reckless with the public purse. Despite Michael Browne’s “credentials” Carnival has been a disaster. All the shows flap and the right hand has no clue what the left hand is doing. I hope that artistes and vendors will get paid on time as bright as the Festivals Minister is. Looking at the attendance at all of the shows so far, I doubt that the gate receipts can cover the light bill at ARG.
    We have a bunch of educated fools running this country. They are dysfunctional and lack basic common sense. Always confusion!

  8. Yeah if SCOOPING ICECREAM 🍦 is “good work” at her level, then by all means keep it up in your little chocolate, vanilla strawberry corner with sprinkles on top 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣

    Meanwhile in the real world, scooping icecream and FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT are 2 different things. She doesn’t know a damn thing about the economy to say she is a “small business owner”

    Mark Harris really ketch she libba off guard with that FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT question boy.

    Night tried (but failed) to CHEAT BY WHISPERING SOME TIPS to her (picked up by the headset) but since it wasn’t a chocolate/vanilla/strawberry question, SHE FAILED TO PROVIDE AN ANSWER. A secondary school student can answer that question!

    • I’m sure you can’t answer either. Is like you eat parrot bottom cause you come with the same bird shit every day! Boss you need some new material!

  9. @ UPP’s Sheffield Bowen….
    Would he have asked any of the labour ministers about Foreign Direct Investment? Ask Molwyn, Cutie, Samantha, Robin and who else? He wouldn’t ask them because they are in government but only Gaston and his junior finance minister would probably know. His question was meant to embarrass the lady. Why didn’t he ask Lovell? You red people are full of it.

  10. The laborites are so different from the upprites negative and one sided even if the whole of upp side have different persons and labour have all the the same corrupt persons they will still talk about the person that use to be on upp ticket that gone 20 years ago. A man make a party a party doesn’t make a man

  11. “I’m a part of the UPP and WE are a teamplayer”
    ~ Gladys Potter response to question about FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT 🤔

    My my my. Icecream 🍦 scooper had a brain freeze or brain fart right next to Pearl “FOOTS ” Quinn in the studios of the UPP-aligned Observer Radio.

    Dame Night should have asked she about upgrading to HOT FUDGE SUNDAE 🍨 🍨 🍨 next time 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣

    Head EMPTY EMPTY EMPTY EMPTY EMPTY Anna tar bout she want to govern country.

    Stay in your shop Gladys. Serve your customers with sprinkles on top. Vegan and sugar-free soy cones are the new Icecream trends.

  12. Up to now we have not heard what it is she is doing to help the youth to get employed. Or how many youths she was able to help so far to get employed. All good and nice sounding words. She is working on a project. What project? These people are full of hot air. They cannot execute anything while in opposition then how the hell will they execute anything when elected. Totally waste of time if you ask me.
