Focus on the Deputy Mayor
As one whoever so often attends the Georgetown Mayor and City Council meeting of the Councillors, I was very concerned about the low level reached by some Councillors.
First, on Monday, Mr. Oscar Clarke made an excellent presentation dealing with the sending off on leave of six senior officers and the proposals for filling the vacancies.
I heard Mr. Clarke as he dealt thoroughly with all aspects of the matter, yet Ms. Chase-Greene and Gwen Mc Gowan-French felt they must speak to waste time.
They could and indeed add nothing to what Mr. Clarke effectively dealt with but they had to talk.
The consultant who said too much time is wasted just talking is correct. The Mayor need to stop being so tolerant and bring these Councillors to their senses.
A society is made secure by the qualities of loyalty and correct behaviour.
At that meeting, I again witnessed a display of disloyalty. Mr. Jordan moved and Mr. Llewellyn John ably seconded a motion condemning Dr. Luncheon’s suggestion for an IMC.
The case was clear; the problem in the City had to do with the Government’s lack of cooperation and rather hostile approaches to a City it cannot control politically.
Believe it or not, the Deputy Mayor who got her seat because people like myself worked hard for the GGG back in 1994, did what the PPP Councillors did – abstain. Unbelievable, but now we can no longer respect her, it is the second time she has put a knife in the back of the Mayor and the Party that put her there in the first place. – How sad; how shameful. When will she demit office?
