      Last year when she was walking through the district with the other backbenchers, was not election time. Yes, I saw them and had talks with them. They were just checking in on the people but I guess you and others would say you did not see them (as usual). Thank God it have more for this lady than against her.

    You ain't see work taking place on the road? What does be wrong with you all? Knowing Caines if she had enough personal money she would have fixed it herself. You all need understand how politics works. If money is not approved for capital projects how can they get done? I have heard her several times in the house arguing for that particular road and stone have issue to be dealt with. Some of you all talking about cleaning up. Show some national pride and take a shovel and rake and help clean up your district. Why
    your rep and Gov’t has to do everything. Some talking about her passing through.. so because you ain't see her means she did not pass through
    The district? Some of you just sickening.
