NOT WAITING ON MAY 7TH, NATALIE HAREWOOD ISSUES DEPOSIT TO RUN FOR BRIDGETOWN
Nomination Day is set for six days hence, but one candidate has decided not to wait and placed her bid for her intended constituency early ahead of General Elections slated for May 24th.
In March, many Barbadians thought the one-time sex worker was joking when she decided to be a voice for the invisible and downtrodden of the City.
Most media houses only covered Natalie’s initial clean-up campaign on Nelson Street, where through anonymous donations, she was able to put a dent in the vermin population by removing two derelict cars which were rusting and harbouring rodents under differing tenures from both ruling Democratic Labour Party as well as the Main Opposition Barbados Labour Party.
Ms Harewood has made many Facebook Live presentations which most mainstream media has ignored for the large part, except BajanReporter.com and CITA 90.1 FM.
Many Barbadians felt she earned her stripes when her former Campaign Manager ran a failed attempt at an alternative party using her Facebook page, and although yelling and reprimanding him, she used no street language and stayed on the issue – impressing many undecided voters.
Now she has come forward and made her intention to compete for the seat of Bridgetown a reality, so it is up to her constituents to decide. Ms Harewood faces the leader of the fledgling United Progressive Party – Lynette Eastmond; the incumbent Colonel Jeffrey Bostic of the Main Opposition BLP; Fallon Best from Solutions Barbados and Henderson Williams of the ruling DLP.
