Mr. E . George Hutson
Former MP for St. James Central 2008-2013
Minister In DLP Government Of 2008-2013
The contents of this letter is not aimed at anyone’s character, the names therein are merely to show the persons I have spoken to in the past 10+ years in my pursuit of redress for a callous and unjustified act visited on me.
With great respect to you sir, I am asking you to use your lobbying skill to help Mr. Blackman of Clarkes Rd, Derricks , St. James. whose home is in real danger of flooding because of the unjustifiable and inconsiderate building of a road in and along a watercourse by a wealthy white woman by the name of Pat Brayshaw of Palm Paradise , Chapel Gap , Paynes Bay, St. James.
For over 10 + years I have complained to a Mr. Alleyne of T & C Department, Mr. Dawe of Drainage, Mr. Thornhill , Mr. Tudor, Mr. Patrick, Mr. Lovell, Mr. Hurley, Mr. Morris of MTW – all of them ignored the cry of a poor black man, by overlooking the danger of a road in and along a watercourse which threatens his household.
Years later Mr. Blades of BWA and Mr. Arthur of Arthurs Construction came to lay pipes, I explained to Mr. Blades the danger of the road in the watercourse to my home, and that I had complained to Drainage and MTW, he said he would have spoken to Mr. Yearwood at Drainage and the boulders would be removed and not replaced. When I came home that day the pipes were laid on my side of the watercourse and covered about 3ft higher, the boulder were placed 2-3 ft over on my side making the danger worse, Mr. Arthur told me I cannot tell he or B W A where to lay the pipes even if it is on my land. I asked the then MP for St. James Central Mr. Symmonds to intervene on my behalf; a meeting was arranged and took place at the site of the watercourse with Mr. Marville, Blades, Drayton of BWA, Mr. Yearwood of Drainage and I. Mr. Marville give his word that the danger would be corrected. I am still waiting.
Leading up to the 2013 general election the watercourse was made extremely dangerous because of you [Mr. Hutson] successfully lobbying the MTW (the same MTW which ignored my cries to them to correct the unjustifiably building of a private road in and along a watercourse) to asphalt pave the same private road for a wealthy white woman [Pat Brayshaw] to her gate. The rest remainder of the road in and along the watercourse leading to a black man’s house in the back was tar and stone. You supervised the paving of that road, I saw you driving in the area and a man doing your bidding by videotaping the activity taking place, Sir, you had a hands on involvement in the construction of this private road in and along the watercourse. The weight of the vehicles continue to push the boulders out enter the only path the flood waters have to flow on my side, the vehicles have also flattened the ridge on the other side of the watercourse so the flood waters spread and circle my home.
Sir, I have no hostility towards you or the officials of those government departments that have treated my complains with disregard in the past , all I am requesting is for you to lobby the MTW Department again, this time to urgently correct the danger posed to my household ,
