JAMAICA Labour Party representative for North Clarendon, Laurie Broderick, said he is optimistic about his chances as candidate for the constituency.
A jovial Broderick, who was greeting supporters at Shooters community in the parish. He was nominated shortly after 1:00 pm at the Crofts Hill Primary and Junior High School.
"I had a turnout of people from the constituency which were enthused, and ready to work. I didn't have to rely on any cross border support," he said, making reference to his opponent and PNP representative Horace Dalley.
"We have identified the votes, we have done our canvas, and we know what we have to do," said Broderick confidently.
Broderick said he paid his $3000 nomination fee with strictly $100 notes.
