President of the Antigua & Barbuda Calypso Association Adelza “Lypstick” Sheridan has survived to head the organisation after days characterised by tense uncertainty, and during which loomed the prospect of either a vote of no confidence in her, or her carrying out her threat to resign.
However, instead of a lynching when members assembled for a general meeting on Monday, there was an overwhelming request for her to retain the headship of the organisation.
“There was a lot of undermining (that) was going on really, but I’m throwing all that behind my back now. And you know (I) just want to see the association just keep moving on, because it’s just gonna remain stagnant if we just keep with this sort of a tendency. So whatever (happens) I’ll just move on with the programme and let the association be a success,” was the reaction from Sheridan, whose term has two years remaining.
Nearly all of the more than 20 people attending the meeting agreed that the organisation would be better off with, than without, the current leader.
