His Worship Pt Ubraj Narine this morning met with Senator James Sanders Jnr of the New York 10th Senate District. The Mayor welcomed Senator Sanders to Georgetown and briefed him on the social, political and economic profile of the City.
Deputy Mayor Alfred Mentore who was also present shared the sentiments of the Mayor and welcomed the Senator to the city.
Senator Sanders indicated that his constituents represent a large section of Guyanese people and he is proud to represent them. He stated that his visit is to familiarize himself with the country and to get a better appreciation of the Guyanese culture.
Mayor Narine stated that despite the hostile political climate, the Council continues to provide services to the citizens of Georgetown with its limited resources. He expressed gratitude to the US Government through the US AID programme for its continued support, most recently the donation of a tractor to assist the solid waste department.
Senator Sanders commented that Guyana has produced talented people and he is open to engaging with the Council to provide assistance. He expressed interest in a twinning initiative to facilitate an exchange of skills to support the City.
