Letter to the Editor. RE: Jamaica's National Stadium Pool

Dear Editor,

Following my recent comments on social media regarding the air pollution resulting from the welding site in close proximity to the National Stadium Swimming Pool, I am very appreciative of the swift response by Major Desmond Brown and the local media for highlighting the issue of keeping the National Pool area safe for all users.

I am passionate about Jamaica’s athletes and the energies they put into representing our country. I am also conscious of potential health and safety risks for everyone who chooses to use the facility. Not only swimmers but netball and basketball athletes, parents, coaches, lifeguards, vendors and all staff of the stadium are equally negatively affected as they are all in close proximity to the plant.

In light of this, I am petitioning for permanent removal of the welding site from the pool area to a more conducive place on the stadium grounds with very little hindrance to the workflow that I understand is necessary for the wielding plant.

In light of the inherent costs associated with this effort, I am open to providing financial assistance to the relevant authority to relocate this very offensive welding plant.

Finally, I send positive vibes to the hard workers and dedicated volunteers at the National Stadium and the athletes who continue to make our nation proud.

Sincerely, Sean Paul
