DPI, Sunday, January 19, 2020

The Decade of Development will result in, “a completely different revolution in development taking place.”

This was the message delivered to scores of residents from West, North and South Ruimveldt, and surrounding city wards who attentively listened to Minister of Finance Winston Jordan’s presentation, Saturday evening.

“The Coalition under President David Arthur Granger will continue to work for all …. Look at what the government has done for your community and know that we will do even more,” he added

The Finance Minister noted that the country’s development was clear to see in many areas. He listed the many newly-constructed and rehabilitated roads in the capital city, Lethem and several other communities countrywide, installation of street lights, potable water systems and the $119Million concrete bridge, officially handed over to the Moruca subdistrict of the Barima-Waini Region on January 18. He outlined plans for the Linden to Lethem Road, Ogle to Soesdyke By-Pass Road and bridges across the Demerara and Corentyne Rivers, and a state-of-the-art Poly Clinic to serve Festival City, South Ruimveldt and the surrounding suburbs.

Minister Jordan further stated that a special package of salaries and incentives is being worked on for the joint services, similar to that which teachers and nurses have benefitted from. He explained once again that the Opposition’s promised bonuses could not compare to the steady salary increases wrought under his tenure. This will be beneficial in the long run since pensions would be based on increased salaries and not one-off bonuses.

Describing the Coalition as an all-inclusive administration he pointed to the formation of the Social Cohesion Ministry and its work to unite all regardless of ethnicity or political affiliation.

In closing, the  Minister reminded attendees to vote early and to assist others to travel to cast their ballots, if necessary.
