Will the City Council ever get it right?

first_imgDear Editor,Last Monday, Guyana observed a national day of mourning for the fishermen who were killed by pirates seven weeks ago in Suriname waters.According to a proclamation by President David Granger, signed by Minister of State Joseph Harmon, the day was intended to serve as a solemn memorial to the victims.As I drove around our capital on that day, I saw all state entities and most private sector entities quite appropriately flying their flags at half-mast. I felt so patriotic and proud to show respect to those fishermen, who died in an effort to put food on our tables.Then I passed the Stabroek Market Square and observed the flag there flying lustily at full mast. I had to ask myself the question: Will the City Council ever get it right? Could it be that City Hall believe that they are above the laws, protocols and established etiquette of our country? Or is it simply that they are just unsophisticated, unworldly, and unsuitable for positions of leadership?Sincerely,Roseanne Rodgerslast_img
