Dear Sir,


Re: Request For Installation of Electricity Poles in a) Westmoreland, Saint James and b) Upper Weston, Saint James


I write this letter in my capacity as the Barbados Labour Party’s Candidate for Saint James North in the upcoming General Elections.


I hereby kindly request your Department to use its good offices to request the Barbados Light & Power Co. Ltd. to install functioning electricity poles in the following districts in the constituency of Saint James North, viz.


1) Westmoreland, Saint James (the closest electricity pole thereto is numbered KDB592). This area is on the main road leading to the Highway 2A/Westmoreland junction, and


2) Upper Weston, Saint James (the closest electricity pole thereto is numbered KB0295). This area is through a gap off of the main road.


You are of course free to contact me in the event that you require any further information or details in this regard.


Yours faithfully,
