– By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

When you are living history, you don’t realize it. Richard David’s first Town Hall event was an unqualified success. He was able to bring out a galaxy of political stars, including Congressman Gregory Meeks, and a number of elected officials from the City Council. There were twenty-five organizations that co-sponsored the Town Hall. When US Senator Chuck Schumer walked into the Richi Rich Palace it was the icing of what was an afternoon of political education and enrichment.

District Leader, Richard David thanked all for their support. He singled out Jarnail Singh for always supporting the community. This is the 550th Anniversary for Sikhism and Jarnail Singh, a popular Sikh, was happy to serve in the footsteps of Guru Nanak, the founder of the religion. He welcomed all to Richi Rich and he promised to be of help in the future.

If the President of the United States could see it fit to recognize the Guyanese victims and their families why couldn’t the Guyana Government? This question was asked by many attendees who wondered why the Guyana Ambassador to the US, the Consul General to New York, and other officials of the Government were absent.
