Statement from the Mayor
Fellow Citizens, I extend to you wishes for peace, good health and prosperity as we are thankful to be able to usher in the New Year 2021, after reflecting on what a year 2020 has been.
The year 2020 was a year of struggles, testing, trauma, loss, anxiety, fears etc. for the Georgetown Municipality, but nevertheless, it became a year of rest, learning, family, self-preservation, selflessness, care and love.
To be able to survive through a pandemic is truly a blessing and we must be thankful for this day. We made it through 2020, one of the most challenging years of our lives.
As Mayor, 2021 will be a year of growth, improvement and completion of numerous proposed projects for our beautiful City of Georgetown.
My vision is to have the City of Georgetown emerged as the “Garden City” once again and I will be working diligently to make this a reality, with the “Clean up, Green Up” campaign. I have hopes in executing many projects that can provide jobs, avenues for businesses, better health care and better market facilities in the City.
The year 2021, I wish to reiterate the Government “once again let’s work together and do what’s right not just for ourselves but for our people.” I urge businesses to pay your taxes so that the Mayor and City Council can perform its duties, and deliver in a timely manner. It is time to stop playing politics with people’s lives and welfare.
I will not be stuck in an immature loophole of politics; I’ve seen better, I know better and I want better. I am pleading with you Citizens to do better, be your brothers and sisters keeper and look out for each other.
Let us repudiate divisions and maximize cohesion amongst our Guyanese brothers and sisters and be inclusive of our cultured society.
As the Chief Citizen of the City of Georgetown, my duty is to serve, protect and honour all its Citizens. I look forward to having my vision and plans of this great City executed in 2021 and beyond.
Happy New Years
May God bless the City of Georgetown
