Prime Minister Freundel Stuart said Barbados is on the way back on track.
He was one of several speakers to take the platform in Eden Lodge in support of St Michael North candidate, Kim Tudor.
Social care minister, Steve Blackett is convinced the monies granted in waivers and tax exemptions under the Barbados Labour Party could have benefited Barbadians.
He stresses the funds could have been used to strengthen social programmes.
Moved by the plights and feeling of dejection from residents of St Michael North, DLP candidate Kim Tudor has pledged jobs and housing will be priority as she moves to restore the constituency to its former days.
Ms Tudor says residents have been turning to her and she has not only been listening but has been able to provide help.
Several areas of the constituency have been de-bushed, investments have been made in a project involving the rearing of chickens and efforts are on to restore a play park.
Ms Tudor says she intends to work with residents to develop their ideas.
One suggestion proposed by Eden Lodge residents, is an open air kiosk facility.
