Blackmoore gets ultimatum from Salisbury residents

Blackmoore
Blackmoore

The people of Salisbury have served notice to Public Works Minister Rayburn Blackmoore that they are ready to take action to have their roads fixed.

The minister is being told that he is being given one week “and no more” to respond to their request for dialogue on the road conditions of feeder roads in the area.

Parliamentary Representative for Salisbury Hector John has warned that if Minister Blackmoore fails to respond to the community at the stipulated time, they won’t be responsible for what happens next.

According to John, on November 24, 2011, the people of his constituency wrote to the works minister asking for dialogue to address the matter of repairing feeder roads in Salisbury, Morne Rachette and Coulibistrie.

“(No response) Up till now, tomorrow will give it two months and he has not responded. He has disrespected the people of the constituency. He has failed to even acknowledge that he received the letter,” John said.

“We are giving him one week and no more. If he does not respond to us, do not blame the people for what happens after,” the Salisbury MP said.

“We have been doing everything in our power to ensure that we repair the feeder road in the area and Blackmoore has refused to meet with farmers,” area parliamentary representative John alleged.

    I wish I could take my vote back like observer said in one of his calypsos. I voted for Earl Williams and then Hector John thinking that aas a young person like me he would understand the issues concerning young people BUT I was so wrong he has allowed himself to believe that he can do as he please because Salisbury is a strong support base for UWP. Let DLP send Coach Pelham and hector will see how disappointed I am in him as a person who attended Monroe College. I am fininshing my degree overseas but I will be back in time for next election and if Pelham is on the Ballot Hector will be sorry for his nonsencse he trying to put my community through.

    Alleyne Carbon was Eugenia Charles hardest working minister and he lost to Austrie – incidentally for Parry and the others who seem to forget under the Freedom Party and the leadership of deceased Alleyne Carbon as Minister of Communicaion and Works road works were being done throughout the island simultaneously – Roseau to Hatten Garden NELLO TEER; Portsmuth to Hatten Garden Senctra; Roseau to Granbay Rush and Tumpkins and guess what garcon all Dominicas who wanted work get work not like Chinese workers building roads and Dominicans watching them can not get work; so make Blackmore believe he there forever just now like humty dumpty he going to fall flat on his face.

    I have read your two coments with interest original stupes, and while I am not a DLP supporter and one who has voted for Hector John I must say that I support your comments fully. I live in Salisbury and I know both individuals and the one you speak of has all the attributes necessary to be a a great MP, but, he will not contest for the UWP, the party I support. Some may hold the fact that he arrested them against him but he has to do his job. I would vote for Pelham even if he was not a UWP candidate. Hector has lost his way. I am so disappointed.

    I KNOW A FEW YOUNG MEN IN SALISBURY AND ONE OF THEM COMES TO MIND, THE POLICE OFFICER, FORMER NATIONAL CRICKETER AND MEMBER OF WCK WOULD MAKE A PERFECT REPRESENTSATIVE. THIS GUY PELHAM IS A MAN WHO CARES ABOUT HIS PEOPLE AND HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN MENTORING YOUTH FOR A LONG TIME. HE WOULD BE A GOOD MAN TO REPRESENT SALISBURY AS HE HAS DONE IN MANY AVENUES. I WISHED I LIVED IN SALISBURY I WOULD PUSH FOR THIS MAN TO BE THE NEXT MP OF SALISBURY. HE HAS BEEN AN AMBASSADOR FOR HIS PEOPLE FOR MANY YEARS. NOT HECTOR JOHN, PLEASE.I AM NOT SAYING PELHAM IS PERFECT I AM SAYING THAT HE IS A BETTER CALIBRE OF INDIVIDUAL AND HE IS A COMMITTED GUY, SERIOUS IN WHATEVER HE DOES. HE IS A MORE SUITABLE MAN TO REPRESENT THEM.MY OPINION.

      I am a bwi citizen and living in the USA/ Student, I would support Pelham with all my family votes cause this is the man I know would take Salisbury to the next level for real. Hector is no where close to this guy in making things happen and caring about people. All the youth calls him coach and thats the respect they have for him. I was told by a very reliable person that he was spoken to to contest for UWP and they told him that it would be an easy victory and even knowing that he would win easily he rejected the idea and thats a man with integrity who is an example in Salisbury a man who knows what it is to struggle in life. He can show our youth how to get up from adversity. He would not go the easy way and stuck to what he believes and refused. The person who told me is the daugther of that member of the UWP machinery in Salisbury. If DLP wants Salisbury all they have to do is prepare Pelham and its there for the taking. He is from the block and has been mentoring for decades looking after youth and devloping sports men in Salisbury. If Pelham is contesting for DLP Hector will know what day it is in Salisbury. I went to school with Hector but he is a huge disappointment. Forget Skerritt and Blackmore and put Salisbury first show what you made up of not this nonsense. I support you stupes all the way and my family is extremely large on the block and in New York.

      we ened to decide who uses this name I am stupes and you say you are original stupes#1 so I will allow you to use that name and find myself another. There will be no more post using stupes from me that is. Well I happen to know Pelham quite well actually. I will share this with you guys. He use to sponsor trophies at ITSS and was always at our graduations handing out trophies annually. He arrested me some years after for wounding a guy who attacked me with a gang of thre in St Jospeh. Wads extremely professional charged all four of us for I beilieve bad conduct and me for wounding one of the guys. After calling in some parents and giving us our charges we were refused bail as one guy had made threats abiout when he go out what he would so. While feeding us and allowing us to take our baths he lectured us for over two hours and shared his life experiences with us.Told us how is was lucky to even be a police officer. I cried in the cells and after going to court I was fined and all of us shock hands in the court room me and the other guys. I met hiwhen he was in WCK when they came to SM and that guy told me how proud he was of me that I had learnt from my one mistake while others never do thay continue. Its like he is a father figure and that is what our youth needs now, role models. He is a very serious policemen dont play with him but he will not abuse anyone just a tight cop. I would encourage anyone in Salisbury to vote for such a man if his gets involved in politics. Thank you Pelham for all your advisew and for doing your job because thats what changed my life. I am a father of one and getting maried soon. I dont smoke I dont drink strong alcoholic drinks thanks to your lectures to us at school. thanks if you are reading this.

    Mr. John your representation would be more effective if it was done in the correct venue, which is at the House of parliament. You are the one failing to represent the people of Salisbury. The people of Salisbury should demonstrate their intelligence and refuse to vote for you again as you have been a great disappointment by refusing to attend parliament to represent their interest. Your action is undemocratic and demonstrates a lack of protocol.

    i have just this to ask the people of salsbury. why is it you have not called on my john to stop accepting money from government when he has refused to go to the house to represent them. why is it they are calling on blackmoore and not on john. to mr john dont u as a leader know that every man is responsible for his actions? are u now calling on the people of you community to resort to violence ? well why am i not suprise that surly has become your nature. now to mr blackmoore dont give opportunity to wicked men to bring your name and that of the country to shame. treat persons with respect even if they are the ones who have been seeking to be treated with disrespect

  9. The truth
    January 25, 2012

    looks to me like mr john wants mr blackmore to drive up and down in every corner looking for what needs to be done. i agree labour has their own rep for salisbury and he should also fight for what they need. it just seems to me that hector john is jeering on the people of his community to start a fight that will only see them jailed. what kind of leader is that? they say the pm preys on the loyalty of his majority to get off with things, which can be true at times, so why hector have to prey on the loyalty of salisbury to start something that will only see those people imprisoned and the government will still remain the same. all the man has to go is go to parliament and stop the childish hissy fit. him and his party members just need to grow up. it pathetic

    SHOULDN’T I DISCLAIM RESPONSIBILITY FROM WHAT HAPPENS AFTER???

    BUT YOU SEE, SOME PEOPLE JUST LIKE PROBLEM, AND THINK THAT OTHERS HAVE NO RIGHT TO SPEAK UP FOR WHAT IS THEIR RIGHT…. SO WHAT ARE WE SAYING LABORITES???? PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT THE UWP ARE NOT DOMINICANS AND ARE NOT ENTITLED TO EQUAL OPPORTUNITY AND SHOULD WITHER BY THE WAYSIDE BECAUSE OF ONGOING POLITICAL DISAGREEMENT???? IF THE DLP WANT TO WIN OVER UWP SUPPORTERS TO ITS SIDE DONT YOU THINK THEIR STRATEGY SHOULD BE TO EMBRACE THEM EQUALLY AND SHOW THAT THEY ARE A PARTY FOR ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL DOMINICANS….

    WELL ALL I CAN SAY IS, IF THIS IS THE ATTUTUDE OF THE MAJORITY…WELCOME TO JAMROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SEAGA AND MANLEY SOON COME.

      WHILE I RESPECT YOUR OPINION, BLACKMORE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL OF DOMNINICA ROADS, PORTS ETC, A FULLY LOADED MINISTRY WITH NUMEROUS HEADS. HECTOR JOHN IS RESPONSIBLE FOR SALIBSURY CONSTITUENCY AND HE HAS FAILED TO DO HIS JOB. SHOULD BLACKMORE STOP WHAT HE IS DOING FORTHE BENEFIT OF ALL OF DOMINICA TO RUSH TO SALISBURY BECAUSE HECTOR SAYS HE WROTE TO BLACKMORE. IF HECTOR WAS MATURE AND INTELLIGENT LIKE THE SIZE OF HIS HEAD SUGGEST, HE WOULD HAVE FOLLOWED A DELIBERATE PROCESS AND DOCUMENT THOSE LETTERS AND MEETINGS WITH THE MINSTER TO MAKE A CASE OF MARGINALIZATION OF SALISBURY. IS THIS THE BEST SALSIBURY CAN DO?? I REALLY QUESTION THE IQ LEVEL OF HECTOR JOHN. IT IS SAID EDUCATION IS NOT INTELLIGENCE AND THIS GUY IS LIVING PROOF OF THAT SAYING.ANY REPAIRS ON A ROAD REQUIRES A COSTING AND PLANS AND SOURCING OF FUNDING AND CONTRACTS BIDDING ETC A LONG PROCESS. EARL FAILED TO REPIR SALISBURY’S ROADS AND HECTOR JOHN WAS THERE AND NEVER ADVISED EARL TO DO SO.TODAY, HECTOR JOHN IS INCITING HIS PEOPLE TO VIOLENCE, WHAT A MESS THAT SALISBURY NEEDS TO CLEAN UP.ANYWAYS MR BJACKMORE SHOULD AT LEAST MEET THE HARD WORKING PEOPLE OF SALISBURY BUT NOT BECAUSE OF HECTOR’S ALTIMADUM AND I WOULD DO SO WELL AFTER THE TIME HECTOR GAVE JUST TO SEE REALLY HOWFOOLISH THIS GUY IS AND WHO IN SALISBURY WOULD FOLLOW HIM TO JAIL. PLEASE LOOK UP THE MEANING OF HECTOR IN YOUR DICTIONARY. HE IS DEMONSTRATING THE MEANING OF HIS NAME. WHAT A JOKE AND A MAJOR MISTAKE BY THE PEOPLE OF BAWI.BUT AGAIN, IT IS THEIR RIGHT TO VOTE FOR IMCOMPETENCE. SORRY MY BAD.

WHY CANT SALISBURY FIND A SUITABLE REPRESENTATIVE LIKE THAT GUY PELHAM WHO IN MY VIEW IS A GOOD MAN TO BE AN MP? HECTOR DOES NOT WISH TO WORK IN THE INTEREST OF SALISBURY. I WISHED I WAS LIVNING IN SALISBURY I WOULD PUSH FOR PELHAM TO BE THE NEXT MP.

    January 25, 2012

    Mr. John, why didn’t you do the job that you were elected to do? that is bring good representation to the people of salisbury. the airwaves is not the place for that. you are being PAID to represent Salisbury, but instead you collect a salary as pal-rep and then don’t show up.then talk about corruption, and stealing. you are a WORKER, so work for the money being paid to you by the state. GO to parliament and make good representation on behalf of your people. as an educated man, you know about protocol, so stop trying to buy support by acting foolish. gone are the days of empty threats and loud talk. you should have documented every step of attempting to dialogue with the minister so that in the event of a stale mate, you would now have irrefutable evidence that the minister paid you no heed. your lack of leadership and foresight has put you in a dangerous situation and made you a desperate man, and we all know that desperate men do desperate thing. please for your sake and the credibility of the politicians of this our lovely country, retract such irresponsible and juvenile statement/threat. any YES you ARE responsible because guess what? YOU ARE THE REPRESENTATIVE. IT’S YOUR JOB TO BE RESPONSIBLE BECAUSE YOU ARE BEING PAID TO BE RESPONSIBLE. IF YOU CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE, THEN STEP DOWN SINCE YOU ARE INCOMPETENT IN HANDLING A LEADERSHIP ROLE. YOU CAN’T CONTROL YOUR FOLLOWERS? DID I HEAR RIGHT? MAN WAKE UP AND DEVELOP A NEW STRATEGIC PLAN OF HOW YOU ARE GOING TO ACCOMPLISH YOUR GOALS

    Maybe Hector should lead by example and use some of the free money he’s gettign from the government and start a “fix the roads of Salisbury fund”…after all, the ppl elected him to see to their needs in Parliament and since he is renegading on the deal, he should forfeit the pay

    having said that, if Minister Blackmore has not responded or acknowledge the letter…that’s a shame..

  13. January 25, 2012

    MP Rayburn Blackmoore is one of the hardest working Ministers in DLP. We see that the there is a major road rehabilitation project being done island wide. He can’t be evrywhere at once. Wat needs to be done is:

    Salisbury needs representation at the house of parliament so that the situation can be addressed in a more efficient and professional manner that is lacking in UWP.

    While i’m not a supporter of UWP, I strongly believe that the opposition needs to follow up on their concerns at parliament and to uphold the integrity of the government. DLP cannot build Dominica alone, it involves all of us and it must be done at a central point of interest.

      even if he goes to house they still will not take the salisbury people’s concern because guess what.. they didn’t vote for them. they only do projects in the constituencies that voted for them when election is around the corner much less for the people who did not vote for them. this government is very corrupt!!! Go the house and do what exactly??? shout over each other. for big men who are suppose to be the leaders of a country can’t even sit and discuss ideas, but rather they speak while another is speaking and thus you have a bowl of confusion. don’t even talk about the so called speaker of the house.

THIRDLY, YOUU CANNOT DICTATE TO GOVERNMENT YOU DIALOGUE AND IF YOU UNDERSTOOD THE PROCESS OF GOVERNANCE YOU WOLD HAVE LED A DELEGATION TO THE MINSTERS OFFICE IN A PEACEFULWAY OR TO THE PRIME MINSTERS OFFICE, IF THAT DOES NOT GET BLACKMORES ATTENTION THEN YOU COULD LEAD A PEACEFUL DEMONSTRATION ETC, IT IS ONLY AN IGNORAMUJS WOULD INCITE HIS PEOPLE INTO VIOLENCE AND KNOWING WHAT COULD HAPPEN YOU SEEM RECKLESS ABOUT THE CONSEQUENCES TO YOUR PEOPLE. CAN YOU PRODUCE A COPY OF THE LETTER THAT YOOU SENT TO BLACKMORE AND HOW DID YOU DELIVER THIS LETTER AND TO WHOM?AFTER FAILING TO PROVIDE LEADERSHIP AND EFFECTIVE REPRESENTSATION TO YOUUR PEOPLE HERE YOU ARE LEADING THEM ASTRAY, YOU SHOULD BE PROUD OF YOURSELF. HAVENT THESE PEOPE SUFFER ENOUGH EMBARASSMENT FROM EARL AND THEN YOU, SIR. YOU BETTER GET OUT OF POLITICS IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW TO REPRESENT PEOPLES INTEREST. IS IT IN THE INTEREST OF THE SALISBUURY PEOPLE TO TAKE UP ARMS AGAINST GOVERNMENT BECASE YOU CLAIM THAT YOUU WROTE TO THE MINSTER AND HE HAS NOT RESPONDED? IS THAT YOUUR FIRST COURSE OF ACTION? YOU HAVE MADE A VERY RECKLESS STATEMENT AND YOU NEED TO RETRACT IT NOW SIR, RIGHT NOW. SHAME ON YOU AND THOSE THAT ADVISE YOU HECTOR JOHN.THERE ARE MANY STEPS THAT YOU CAN TAKE IN A PEACEFUL WAY TO GET WHAT YOUR PEOPLE NEED, GROW UP, I CANNOT IMAGINE YOU AS A MINISTER OF GOVERNMENT AT ALL.

  22. Ridiculous
    January 24, 2012

    If the Honorable MP for Salisbury was attending Parliament he would have been better able to represent Jean Bawi. He could have tabled the matter to the Minister himself. But he wants to be in the People’s Parliament, so while I do not wish that your roads continue to be in whatever state that it is, for the MP to say “We are giving him one week and no more. If he does not respond to us, do not blame the people for what happens after,”sounds really foolish maybe childish and even can be considered a threat to incite violence.

    This does not sound good coming from a Minister of Parliament. Some people just don’t know what to say, and when to say it….If I was Hon. Blackmoore, I would demand you return to Parliament before I address this ill-advised outburst from you. But as the saying goes….you made your bed so lie in it Mr. John.

    The cops have a right to arrest you for such a statement.
    Stop making Fredrick Baron give you advice and think for yourself. Probably if you were in the house, Blackmore might have listened to you.

    You really should consider taking some public speaking classes.

    …”If he does not respond to us, do not blame the people for what happens after,” the Salisbury MP said.” ….Now just how irresponsible a statement is that to come from an MP? Incitement to disorder? Desperation?

    The people of Morne Prosper in the Roseau Valley are also serving notice to Messrs Blackmoore and Mc Intyre that they will take action in the near future if the unduly protracted construction works on the Morne Prosper main road is not hastened. Remember that you are on borrowed votes from the dedicated representation that we were used to under the UWP We now feel abandoned. Please do not wait to have the road completed when the next election is drawing near as a political gimmick of progress and development in the Roseau valley. We know better. We expect more. We are watching and waiting, ready to bring back honest and hard working representation to the people.

    I always knew that one of the reason for the change at the helm of the UWP was to bring on situations as these. Spaggs is talking and taking the lead because the UWP want to rescue the ground that was lost in Salisbury after their Parl Rep was over-looked for leader and the imminenet threat to his position as Opposition Leader. This planned social unrest activity is to press Spaggs into the news as a man of action for his people.Well done Eddo. You have begun to take the fight to Skerrit

    I am always astonish by some of the thing that U.W.P Representative are doing, what dose he mean by what happen after the dead line if he Minister Blackmoore dose not respond, they will not be responsible. Hello Law and order must be maintain and if you are the one to instigate violence well the long arm of the law will have to deal with you and not minister Blackmoore. As someone said if you were representing your people in house of parliament you would have served your people much better… in hindsight i think your people should demand that you represent them the way you should

    They can do all what they want to the feeder roads, but the moment they interfere with other peopele liberties the police should arrest all of them. So blockin roads, burning people’s property and such would be deemed illegal.

    Mr. Minister if this is true please response to Hon. John

    and to now to you………….

    Hector John,

    If this is going to turn out into something violent then you are being irresponsible!!

    I agree that the minister must response BUT if you are doing anything to incite violence and to disobey the rule of law then I say to you please refrain from that!!

    Instead I suggest you can;

    ….. PROTEST INFRONT HIS OFFICE ,
    MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO SEE THE MINISTER.

    OR

    GO BACK TO PARLIAMENT!!

      I look back on the days when laborites the very same ones today stood behind mike Douglas and Rosie when they boycotted parliament for 18 months only because Mamo decided not to broadcast parliament. To the Laborites that was their right and so they felt rally behind Mike and Rosie. Rosie Douglas was more than happy for the opportunity so he could do his traveling. Today the opposition is protesting something that is fundamental and essential to democracy and the very same laborites have a problem with that. What hypocrisy. The great leader that she was Mamo while Mike and Rossie was protesting Mamo was building the cruise ship Berth in Portsmouth , building the Long House port , building the pipe line from the heights of Picard. I say this show the difference in leadership and maturity.

      While your excuse for poor government performance is attributed to the absence of the opposition in parliament the roads in constituencies of the government parliamentarians are in dilapidated conditions.

      Salisbury people are known to block the roads when the government will not listen. I encourage the Salisbury people to demonstrate simply because the 27 million dollars now being spent on a useless malice could have gone a long way in helping the farmers get back on their feet.

      What difference would it make, if you follow the events in parliament, when parliamentarians from the opposition ask specific questions of ministers about their costittuency the simplr response they get is “I will look into it” when a supplimenatry question is posed for a time frame the response is “The project is budgeted for and is due to commence soon”. years gone by and project is yet to see the light of day; so there comes a time when the Parl Rep. and his constituents must apply pressure by whatever means necessary to draw attention to their needs

      I agree %100. It is okey to fight for what you believe is right and just. The people need to take to the streets and protest, get a permit if needed. I recall not too long ago the people of Calibishie took to the streets for the same cause, and if I’m not mistaken, they got that road done in no time.

They seem to have money. They allu supporting. Issuing warning! All you well out of place! EN Rouge !!!!

      If you were in the house you would have had the 2011/2012 estimates in your hand and would be able to educate your people and show them under what head funds were available for feeder road repair all over the Country.

      UWP supporters and Dominicans in general must all be aware that the days of toupatouism is over; it lead to a massive budget deficit while the revenues for the state remain the same and was even declining. Governments (UWP ) then sold a number of state assets at a fire sale and obviously received little for entities like Domlec and began attacking DSS pensioners’ funds ( to service recurrent expenditure) and were not able to pay monthly contributions though they took it from public officers’ salaries.

      We are in a new era with the management of Public funds in Dominica. Thank God for Skerrit!!! You may slam the State Palace but it is a sound investment. The impact and benefits to us will shortly follow and generate revenue for the State.

      We are in the period of results based program budgeting!!! And that means deficits are very much out of the question. As long as revenues continue to remain at its present rate without much of an increase then we cannot just continue to spend like it is business as usual.

      These days the state has to identify Inputs; Activity; Output and Outcomes when deciding to spend state funds. As head of the public accounts committee you all should know that already!!!!

      If the roads will lead to more persons in Salisbury getting work then that will be money well spent. If it is to benefit a man that can help out the situation then he should take the initiative and come around with a community effort and then ask government to match his contribution.

      :-D

You write to the MINISTER THROUGH HIS SECRETARY OR AND permanent secretary. If he was attending ParliameNT he would have learnt a thing Or two about procedures. iF YOU BOYCOTTING pARLIAMENT WHERE THE BUSIENSS OF THE NATION IS BEING HANDLED THE MINISTER DOES NOT HAVE TO RESPOND TO ANY LETTER HECTOR SENT HIM.
