Latoya Reid, student

"I would choose to live in this constituency. The reason is that I grew up here and, while it is not the best, in many ways, it is way better than many other communities. We need to fix the roads and the crime but, nevertheless, I will not leave East Central St James."

Andrew Polack, farmer

"I like living in East Central St James. Its an ideal place to live. It is quiet, especially in the community where I live, so I could not see myself living in any other place besides here."

Ladane Gardner, receptionist

"I don't see myself living anywhere else. By no means am I saying that it is a perfect community, because there are quite a few things that need to be done, such as fixing the bad roads and putting in additional street lights. But I still love living here.."

Carlton Thomas

I am quite comfortable where I am. In this part of the constituency, in Content, Adelphi. The crime rate is not high here and it is a very peaceful area."
