S.White from District 28 says:
Its so sad that the people of D28 complain of corrupt politics and that no one is doing anything for this area and guess what they Re-Elect the same person into office who has been taking money from the community. Breaking many promises and still not fulfilling his promises from this last term. South Jamaica will never prosper and will always be full of corruption and crime. and no one is to blame but the people of South Jamaica
