LETTER: Michael Joseph and Richard Lewis are good men. Gaston is the problem

The content originally appeared on: Antigua News Room

Dear Editor,

I am writing to express my concern about the current discourse surrounding Richard Lewis and Michal Joseph, individuals who have been thrust into the spotlight as part of the political landscape in Rural West.

While both may be deserving of scrutiny in their respective roles as caretaker and MP, I believe it is crucial to redirect our attention to the overarching leadership of Prime Minister Gaston Browne.

In recent discussions, the spotlight seems to have veered away from the real crux of the matter—the performance of Prime Minister Gaston Browne during his decade-long tenure. It is essential for voters to focus on Browne’s track record, as he has been at the helm for a significant period.

Regrettably, Browne’s leadership has been marred by a series of challenges that demand our attention.

Despite a decade in office, the water problem persists, and promises of over 28 investments have yet to materialize.

The unfortunate rise in crime rates and the burden of increased taxes on the populace are issues that should be at the forefront of voters’ minds as they approach the ballot box.

While Richard Lewis and Michal Joseph may have their roles and responsibilities, it is the responsibility of the electorate to scrutinize the overarching leadership that sets the tone for the entire nation.

Let us not be swayed by distractions but, instead, focus on the core issues that impact the lives of Antiguans and Barbudans.

In the upcoming elections, let us cast our votes with a critical eye on the performance and promises of Prime Minister Gaston Browne, who bears the ultimate responsibility for the state of our nation.

By doing so, we can collectively contribute to the progress and prosperity that our country deserves.
