A photo of Gros Islet MP Kenson Casimir on Daren Sammy Drive in his constituency went viral after it appeared on his Facebook page.
“Oh, how I wish I could snap a finger and get all of the roads in Gros Islet to look like this right now! We will get there,” the MP wrote under the photo.
He indicated that the desire and passion burn hotter to accomplish the project.
The Youth Development and Sports Minister thanked Beausejour residents.
Casimir said they welcomed him with open arms during his door-to-door activity on Tuesday.
However, he acknowledged the need for more work everywhere.
And community residents agree, noting that many roads in their area need resurfacing.
Nevertheless, one resident told St. Lucia Times that Casimir had kept his promise.
The resident recalled that the MP had asked people in the community to be patient and await proper resurfacing of the roads that are in poor condition rather than merely filling potholes.
“Buses would not go into certain areas, leaving the elderly and children to walk to their homes in the hot sun,” the resident noted.
The Beausejour resident recalled that resurfacing, paving, or patching the roads in Phases One and Two had not occurred in about many years.
In addition, the resident noted that some years ago, people who lived in the community banded together, bought material, and did some patching.
But, the resident explained that a road resurfacing initiative would be a vast undertaking in the community, asserting that the project has just started.
“He kept is keeping his promise,” the resident said regarding the Gros Islet MP.
Casimir, for his part, wrote on Facebook: “I thought I told you that we won’t stop. While they talk, we serve! That’s what I’m here for. I continue to be heretoserve#.”
