The Castries South Constituency has been plagued with a number of issues for the past several years, according to United Workers Party (UWP) candidate Senator Mary Isaac.

Isaac told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) in an interview that she would like to see these issues addressed and that the constituency is improved and by extension the lives of those who reside within it.

Isaac said under the current St. Lucia Labour Party (SLP) administration, nothing significant has been done to help improve Castries South Constituency.

“One would have thought that when the Labour Party promised better days, that at the very least, the constituencies that they live and work in, would actually see the better days,” she said.

Instead, Isaac believes everyone throughout the length and breadth of St. Lucia and persons living in Castries South in particular, which is part of the city, remains in a worse condition than ever before.

“A majority of the people are unemployed; most live in horrible conditions, with no hope for a future. And to think that they are represented by an educator, who should know better is even worse,” Isaac argued.

The UWP Senator explained that the Faux-a-Chaud is still faced with several environmental issues, especially since a number of the drains remain clogged and requires urgent cleaning.

“The horrible stench that permeates the air is worse. It is amazing that we expect our children and people to learn and produce when they are subject to live in such deplorable conditions.This is truly a sad state of affairs when people cannot even breathe clean air which is supposed to be a free commodity. My heart aches for the residents of Castries South,” Isaac said.

She has stated before that Castries South is the most impoverished amongst the constituencies surrounding the Castries Central basin, although they have some very important assets which includes: part of the seaport, government supply warehouse, two secondary schools and the hospital.

The former trade unionist has already expressed confidence that the UWP will secure the Castries South seat in the next general elections and promised to implement major changes in that constituency.

Castries South is currently being represented by the SLP Government Minister Dr. Robert Lewis.

  3. Mary, take it from me, Robert Lewis is history.
    Personally, I don't think he is going to run again.
    Look beyond him, as though he does not exist, and
    just organize a strong group of men and women and
    start acting as though you are already in charge. After
    all it's already yours, baby, take it. Be blessed.

  4. You are one of those persons who leaves their st home when leaving for work. Had this not been the case you would have never left the CSA. You would have stayed there and fight their cause. If you ask me you are a consummate politician whose work is completely detached from her emotions. In other words she has no heart and if she has no heart she can't feel nor ache about the calamity of other people. Nonsense old witch!

  5. Robert will not run again because he knows his goose is cooked. damn educated idiot who did nothing for the bulk of the people in his own monkey town area... his brother and family alone (ALLEGEDLY) that getting work/contracts. colgate get big pay back other campaigners got nothing.
    He had better not even think of coming back.

  7. Mary is a weak candidate….UWP get real if you plan to contest the next election effectively, please get someone else to represent South Castries. Half of the people in Ciceron is family of Robert Lewis so you need to come really good to beat him. Frankly he is ineffective just like all the other politicians and I actually expected better for a religious man but he's no different. He came into Ciceron and pour concrete from the main road to the church so he could get all the votes of the church. He is using his "apparently religious affiliations" to remain in power. Mary nobody know you, you have always been to yourself, why do you think the electorates will vote for you?

  15. Robert Lewis is not the goodie goodie people look at him to be. As a Religious person and an educator, all he is concerned about is his pocket. He is hoping the SLP will win so he can get his new position probably overseas. Robert Lewis knows members of his own party has lost confidence in him because he has done nothing to uplift Castries South constituency driving up to Tapion, all you see is old houses with rusty galvanize fences what a sight in the Castries basin.Remember CASTRIES is the Capital of St. Lucia

    (33)(40)

    • Seriously anonymous? Old houses with rusty galvanize? Was Robert Lewis suppose to give them new houses? You people know how to write foolishness on these blogs without thinking.

      (27)(9)

      • Bare foolishness talking about old houses with rusty galvanize ... anonymous go find something else to do

        (15)(3)

      • Just saying that he could have uplifted the area by turning it into a housing project, build proper houses so the people can buy them at an affordable price.Remember this is Castries. You can see all cruise ships from that area, and cruise ship passengers can see the area too

        (0)(1)

    • Most of these politicians are the same.... but c'mon...Mary Issac ......I thought St. Lucians were smarter than that.

      (2)(0)

    • I totally agree! St. Lucians always waiting for hand-outs to get anything done. You have a problem with drainage in your area... Aye Bondye... a few of you all can come together... get some spades... solicit assistance from the Castries City Council and solve the issue. It's so disgusting how non-action-oriented we have become.

      (12)(2)
