The newly launched Dominica Labour Party Candidate for the Castle Bruce Constituency Octavia Alfred has told supporters her candidacy is in response to a call to assist in the development of Dominica.
She believes she was born to serve.
“My decision to serve my country is about my love for my country…the answer to the call for capacity building to move this country forward.”
“My decision to enter public life after all my life living quietly with my family is not an easy one. But I was born to serve the Lord and all his people,” Alfred said.
Alfred says she will focus on issues affecting youth and the farmers of the constituency.
“We are committed to modernizing the bay oil distilleries, the cassava factories and to provide proper play areas for our constituency,” she said.
