Blackmoore aims to transform Mahaut constituency if re-elected

Blackmoore addressing DLP Warner meeting

Dominica Labour Party (DLP) candidate for the Mahaut constituency, Rayburn Blackmoore has announced that plans are in place for the transformation and further development of that constituency.

He was speaking at a recent DLP meeting held in Warner.

“We are entering into a new phase of development,” he said. “New opportunities to transform our constituency and making it an example for the rest of the country,” Blackmoore said. “This also includes dealing with the threat of climate change, rebuilding and improving our physical and social infrastructure, building capacity in our young people to take advantage of the emerging opportunities.

He said that over the years, Warner has made progress and assured the people of that community that when they re-elect him, he will work even harder to transform the community of Warner.

“Not only have we provided the people of Warner with healthy potable water, but we also gave the people of Warner free connection,” he the Mahaut Parl Rep stated.

“You also asked for a resident nurse and improvement in the Health Centre and I gave it to you. You asked for the link road and I gave it to you and then you asked for the lighting of the playing field and I gave it to you. You asked for a school bus for high school students and I gave it to you,” Blackmoore noted.

He said in the new term, the DLP plans to provide more young people in Warner the opportunity to study overseas.

    If Blackmore reflect back before the hurricane Maria, you would think that DLP would go on forever, but big people make big mistakes. EVERY Dominicans suffer damages yet, some receive supplies and others none You were commenting is their house but it was also your country. Words get to the Opposionsion that people were unfairly treated and unequal. It is too late now to correct that mistake. This take place all over the country and divided the peaceful country.

    if the people of the Mahaut constituency allow Blackmoore to lie to them again, then that will ell the level of intelligence in that constituency.

    Blackmoore. Why don’t you clean up Mahaut? Especially the part that is along the highway. It is unsightly. Rubbish strewn anywhere. The grass overgrown. Why don’t you put the young men who always by the roadside to clean it? Does it look good to you?

    If that’s what it’s all about, reelection and make money I’m in. I think it’s a bad political/ economic model to give a pal rep money to use as they will to develop ‘constituency’, problem, it will never work. Who will account for the $8mil given to him right after the hurricane for that area? It’s difficult to justify doing it this way, it’s like setting you up to fail. Ask Justina.

    Blackmoore, please keep your naked thoughts to gain votes to yourself and your failed corrupt Labour Party. You should be ashamed to have yourself aligned to this failed Labour Party under its immature failed Leader, now Odd Minister. When I hear Blackmore says: “plans are in place for the transformation and further development of that constituency.” Blackmore where the hell were you and your failed leader and your questionable failed Labour Party. Your failed Labour government has failed we the people all over Dominica. Domininca has ben to reduced to the stat8s of Haiti where people are negging Scare-it and others for cash to support families because Skerrit and his corrupt waste of time Government has failed us big time.

    boy dem man have serious guts, if after 20 years you didn’t make the constituency the envy of dominica then how is going to happen in 5 years.

    Man get the hell out and give change the opportunity to prosper.
    Allu fellers are too corrupt, if DLP ever win the next election I can see more suffering on Dominican and the will sure suck salt because DLP will trample on their democracy.

    Mahaut ppl need to realise that blackmore was never a ppl person nor a community man.

    It was man like felix, Ronnie Isidore and the folk of YFM that help develop the children of the 80’s through activities like summer day camp at the now dilapidated Government school.
    Where was blackmore? I know his sister was very involve but don’t remember this man doing nothing for our community.

    We gave his a chance and trusted him for 20 years, he gave us nothing but bribe and division in the community.

        Could it be that I contribute a small bit to the “good reputation” of their “News Blog”?

        That is also the reason I write here, you know. I want the world to know that everything about Dominica is good–including the character of her people.

    I want take this opportunity to wish the Dominica Labor Party, and the UWP all the luck in the world in the up coming election. and all Dominicans Abroad and at home Let us love each other unconditionally regardless of the result of this election. Growing up in Dominica election day was always a peaceful moment, I pray to God almighty to hold his wrath against Dominica, because I believe Dominicans are good people, and should understand how to behave themselves, because the world is watching. As every hurricanes that pass in Dominica everyone get together and give a helping hand. Lets love and not war, let us hug and not fight. after all if we destroy Dominica to whom shall we go. Our cognitive ability should not be used through violence, but enhance our effort to build Dominica for the good of the land and for the benefits of our children, grand children, our mothers and fathers and for society on a whole.

    Blackmoor, it is my understanding that the English language, that is words in Dominica doesn’t imply the same as internationally.
    Therefore, I must inform you that the terminology transformed, and taking Dominica to the next level are one of the same.
    So, since we were told by Roosevelt more than twenty years ago about this next level, how come you and Melissa are still promising to transform, take Dominica to the next level?
    What happened during the last twenty years?
    You took the country to the downward level!

    Blackmoore , you have done very little or nothing for the people of Mahaut. Your rhetoric is precisely that of a candidate outside of the Cabinet looking in. Many of your constituents are unemployed. They are financially embarrassed. Putting food daily on the table for their family is unimaginably difficult. What plans do you have to create sustainable jobs? If these people make the mistake to put you back as their parliamentary representative then they deserve to live that beggarly life of dependency and malnutrition. People, it’s time to WISE UP! Don’t ever be fooled anymore by Blackmoore and his deceitful buddies empty, worthless promises.

Whats worse is there are actually domincans who listen and hang to their every word like it is our of the bible. Utter complete nonsense Mr. Blackmore. You dont even know what is needed in your constituency. If you did, you would have made sure it got it after the millions the country got after erica or after the billions we got after Maria. Im not even talking about the millions and maybe billions that the dlp has been pocketing all before those two storms. For sure you make sure your mansion was built on the way to Giraudel though. Meanwhile the people in your constituency hurting. If not for elections canefield roads would still be the same. Mahaut and Massacre are still a mess. Shame on you fella.

      A man who was a police officer in Dominica, left the force and turn politician, in less than two years after becoming one of Roosevelt puppets was able to own a house valued at over a million dollars in poor place like Dominica, tells us something is wrong!

      In that boy day on the Dominica Police Force; his pay was less than two hundred dollars per month!

      Correct me if I am wrong but to this day, I don’t know that a police officer salary is five hundred, or exceeds five hundred dollars per month.

      So, people such as that guy should be investigated to find out from where they got their wealth!

      It would be a horrible mistake if Dominicans return Roosevelt and his crew of incompetents to power to wreck the country looking out for themselves and their friends owing materialistic things which their paid salary cannot afford.

      “And you sir have to explain how you build your mansion on a Minister salary”. @Toto

      Explain to whom? And why do so many of you, seem so much like you all are living in the “stone ages”? What are you thinking–that Mr. Blackmore built his house from the cash of his pocket? And even if he did, is it not his private business?

      The man is a high profile person; his job is part of the Government’s initiatives; he has the privilege to secure a bank loan just any other working person.

      The last time I was in Dominica–2008 & 2013– I saw many beautiful houses all over the country; how do you think their owners managed to build them?

      I know a lady who was well off in Giraudel; I read her testimony about the Giraudel Credit Union; she said: “Everything I have is from the Credit Union–I borrow and payback on & on.

      That is the way people of grounds do it in these days and time. Get rid of the habit of speaking the futile thoughts of others.
