Asserting that everyone needs to be heard, opposition leader Philip J. Pierre is going out to communities to interact with persons there in what he calls the ‘Listening Tour.’.
“I came into politics with the firm belief that the voice of the people and good government are deeply linked,” Pierre wrote this week on the official Facebook page of the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP).
“As I prepare to be your next Prime Minister, I make it my business to go to the people in their communities to hear and listen to what these ‘sons and daughters of Saint Lucia’ have to say about how their island home is being managed, and how do they want it to be managed to allow them to realise their hopes and dreams,” the Castries East MP stated.
On Saturday November 23, Pierre said that his ears and mind were tuned to the people of Babonneau.
The Facebook post was accompanied by photographs.
” As you can see in the photos, there is no scripting or the kind of event management you always see on the other side,” Pierre asserted.
“These photos in Babonneau show that everyone needs to be heard – the youth (as they hangout on the block); the older folks at their homes or other properties,” the SLP leader observed.
He said that Babonneau was his fifth stop on the Listening Tour.
