John Victorin says politics a challenge

John Victorin, the ruling party candidate for Anse La Raye/Canaries has told a news conference that the decision to run for elective office posed a challenge.

Victorin disclosed that he had to give the matter a lot of thought and consult with the Almighty and his family.

“The major thought was self-preservation because I had to consider what could possibly happen, because it takes a leap of faith to decide to abandon self-preservation and just move on an serve the people and offer service at the highest level,” he said.

The SLP candidate spoke of the need to invest in human resource development in the constituency he is hoping to represent in parliament.

He said there was need to harness the potential of the people to make use of available employment opportunities.

Victorin observed that for years the Anse La Raye/Canaries constituency has been viewed as one that has been starved of development.

He asserted that he intends to invest as much energy as he can in improving the communities.

Victorin, who has been involved in the community for some two decades in various capacities, explained that one of the key issues is to strengthen community organizations.

He noted that government coffers are under pressure.

The SLP candidate noted that in order to access funding from donors, there is need to strengthen community based movements.

Victorin told the news conference this morning at the SLP headquarters that in this regard, leadership development, especially among the youth, is very important.
