Joe Moretti from Jamaica says:
We have had 12 years of Councilman Leroy Comrie and has anything changed as far as the quality of life in Jamaica, NO, in fact it has gotten worse and his district if one of the worst in Jamaica. So why would one vote for Miller, whom Comrie handpicked.

We need major change in Jamaica and enough with the good ole boys club.
