Dear Editor,

The statements made by ministers and the General Secretary of the PPP in relation to the Georgetown City Council are clearly unworthy of these high offices. The latest salvo is from Mr Clement Rohee who blames the state of the cemetery on the Mayor.

Council battles to manage the City, while battling the Town Clerk

Council battles to manage the City, while battling the Town Clerk as well

November 30, 2012 Capitol News – There are more problems at City Hall and it has nothing to do with your garbage. The Council moved a no-confidence motion against the acting Town Clerk at its last statutory meeting. The Town Clerk seemed unimpressed by the move, saying, that she is unclear under which Municipal Law the councillors are seeking to remove her.

Yesterday (November 29, 2012), at another statutory meeting councillors voted against the acting Town Clerk continuing in her current post and walked out of the statutory meeting.

After the councillors left the meeting, Sooba tried to address the issue but was told by the Chairperson of the meeting, Deputy Mayor Patricia Chase-Green, that there was not a quorum.

While all the inner fighting  continues at  City Hall, garbage is piling up everywhere.
