After twice tasting defeat in previous elections, the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP's) Dennis Meadows has promised that the third time will be the charm when he takes on the People's National Party's (PNP) Victor Wright for the North Trelawny seat in the impending general elections.

Meadows, had previously been beaten by the PNP's Dr Patrick Harris and Patrick Atkinson.

"It will be different this time around. My organisation is much stronger. This time around I will be focusing on the areas where the JLP is strongest to maximise on the votes from these areas," said Meadows.

"My roots in the constituency are now much stronger. I now live here and I have married a woman from this constituency," he said.

Should he win, Meadows said he would be placing emphasis on education and young people.

He also plans to clean up Falmouth and develop a central sewage system.

"I am confident and I am ready," said Meadows, shortly after collecting his nomination papers from Ivanhoe Gordon, the returning officer for North Trelawny.

"The people are hungry for a change and I intend to be that change come election day."
