Brown’s Town Councillor Kim Brown Lawrence says she has applied to the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) to vie to be MP for the North West St Ann constituency in the next General Elections.
Ruel Reid had been named and presented by JLP Leader Prime Minister Andrew Holness as Constituency Caretaker for the seat held by Dr. Dayton Campbell. However, Reid resigned weeks after being fired from the Cabinet in March by Prime Minister Holness.
Since then there have been several people whose names have been mentioned as being likely representatives.
These include businessman, former Jamaica Observer managing Director, Danville Walker, and former MP, attorney Ernest Smith.
However, no one has been chosen.
In a post on Tuesday, August 13, Mrs. Brown Lawrence, businesswoman, and promoter said she had won the Brown’s Town Division that “was not winnable for 36 years”.
She said she had applied to be constituency representative before Ruel Reid was sent to the seat and she supported his work.
She wrote: “I now apply AGAIN and would love my fair chance as I see myself as an aspiring candidate who can transform North West St Ann.”
