“A young man is in town” – Brewster wants to unite people of Central Leeward

  • by

Dr. Orando Brewster, successor of Sir Louis Straker as the Unity Labour Party’s (ULP) candidate for the Central Leeward constituency, is the party’s youngest candidate running for the upcoming general election.

Brewster joined the WakeUpCall with Christal and Tha Fugitive on Tuesday (Aug. 25).

“I’m the youngest one on the slate. He gotta shift over… A young man is in town,” Brewster remarked after one of the co-hosts joked that Hon. Luke Browne sounded jealous at the ULP’s virtual meeting recently, as he introduced him (Brewster) to the podium. Until Brewster stepped into the ring, Browne, Minister of Health, Wellness and the Environment was the party’s youngest candidate.

Dr. Brewster, 33, shared that his campaign is being run on five P’s. Namely: People, Purpose, Passion, Perseverance and Policies.

Brewster explained his first objective, if elected as representative of Central Leeward.

“The first thing is to unite and uplift the people of my constituency and the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines as a whole. There’s too much divisiveness in the political arena, he continued. As a man of God, I can not watch people going at each other for the sake of politics, there is life outside of politics. I don’t wake up every morning thinking about politics, let’s establish that. The first thing I think about is the well-being of my people… I am passionate about people.”

The medical doctor listed education and housing as two policies he would explore.

“If we can come together as one. If we can join our hands and hearts here in St. Vincent, St. Vincent will be a force to recon with in this world,” Dr. Orando Brewster.
