The residents of South Central Windward (SCW) have been assured the further development of sports in the constituency.
Speaking on the WakeUpCall with Christal and Tha Fugitive on Tuesday (June 9), the New Democratic Party’s (NDP) candidate for SCW, Israel Bruce, in agreement with a listener said the sporting facilities in the constituency are “absolutely deplorable”.
Bruce gave assurance that he would be giving sports his attention.
“The people of South Central Windward could be rest assured that I would be giving serious attention to resuscitating youth organizations across the constituency and giving my fullest support,” Bruce asserted.
“…I believe in young people, the National Youths Council believes in young people and the New Democratic Party believes in young people and we will continue to work with young people,” he added.
Sports, the senator promised, will play a critical role in the development of the youth.
Question posed to the senator: “Sports is a way out of poverty, would there be policies to scout for opportunities overseas?”
Bruce’s response: “As part of the job creation strategy through sports, I keep saying that we have not extracted enough from our persons who we sign ambassadorial or counsel responsibilities abroad… or maybe we have not yet focused on as part of our national developmental strategy.”
“The people of the constituency, they know that when it comes to sports, I don’t make sport… I am very serious with it,” Israel Bruce.
