Mortimer Mingo should resign from LGC

first_imgDear Editor,The chairman of any constitutional service commission should possess the following qualities:1. Be able to uphold the integrity and independence of that commission2. Be able to perform the duties of the office fairly, impartially and diligently3. Be able to refrain from political activity.To be more specific, and in step with the spirit of the Constitution, a Chairman of any of the constitutional service commissions should not:•    act as a leader or hold any office in a political organisation;•    make speeches for a political organisation or candidate, or publicly endorse or oppose a candidate for public office; or•    solicit funds for, pay an assessment to, or make a contribution to a political organisation or candidate; or attend or purchase a ticket for a dinner or other event sponsored by a political organisation or candidate.If such a situation arises, then such a chairman must resign and vacate their office forthwith in order to protect the integrity of that constitutional service commission.As Head of the Local Government Commission, whose main function is to deal with all matters relating to the local government system, Mr Mortimer Mingo is expected to be free of party affiliation, and is certainly expected not to hold a leadership position in a political party if the perception is to be preserved that he is independent, without bias, and is fit to carry out his functions professionally and objectively.In this regard, I am calling upon Mr Mingo to immediately resign and immediately vacate the office of the Chairman of the Local Government Commission.  Why?  He was elected to the executive of the People’s National Congress Reform at its August 2018 Congress.  His engagement in such public political activity prevents him from being a fair actor on the Local Government Commission.  You cannot be the regulator and the regulated at the same time.This situation will be the test of Mr Mingo’s integrity, and by extension his appointer, His Excellency President David Granger.Sincerely,Sasenarine Singhlast_img read more

Golden Valley Ranch mall set to open next year

first_imgSANTA CLARITA – Though almost two years behind schedule, the long-awaited shopping mall at Golden Valley Ranch is due to be built in the coming months and stores should be open by spring or summer 2008, the builder said Tuesday. Santa Clarita city officials are optimistic the plan will stay on track. “We are very excited to open it as a resource and amenity for residents of the east Santa Clarita Valley,” said Michael Strahs, vice president of development for GMS Realty LLC. The complex would be the third largest shopping complex in the valley and the largest to serve the east side of town. It is a key part of the Golden Valley Project, which includes nearly 500 homes in the canyons east of the Antelope Valley Freeway, south of the Fair Oaks Ranch Development. Forecasts have predicted the mall would generate $1.3 million in sales revenues for the city each year. judy.orourke@dailynews.com (661) 257-5255 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Arsenal transfer news: The Barca youngster wanted at the Emirates

first_img Arsenal are interested in Barcelona and Germany star Georgios Spanoudakis 1 Arsenal are closing in on yet another Barcelona youngster, so talkSPORT’s Talent Spotter looks at the German midfielder set to follow in the footsteps of Cesc Fabregas and swap the Camp Nou for the Emirates…Name: Georgios SpanoudakisDate of birth: 25 November, 1998Birthplace: Giannitsa, GreecePosition: Central midfielderInternational: Member of Germany U16 squadWhat’s the latest?Various English outlets reported that Arsenal have already signed Spanoudakis, but Catalan paper Sport have been in contact with the player, and he insists that while he has an offer from the Gunners – as well as several from Germany – he has yet to make a decision. In any case, it looks certain that he will leave Barcelona, after playing less frequently last season than he would have liked.Did you know?1) Spanoudakis was born in the north of Greece, but only a few days later he moved to a town just outside Frankfurt with his family. As such he considers himself more German than Greek.2) The youngster was part of Eintracht Frankfurt’s academy when, at the age of 10, he was spotted by Barcelona. The Catalan side quickly spoke with his father, and a move to La Masia was agreed.3) Originally a central defender who occasionally played as a holding midfielder, Barcelona converted Spanoudakis into a central attacking midfielder, playing a similar role to his idol, Andres Iniesta.4) The youngster is known for his great touch, good passing and physical strength. He isn’t particularly prolific in front of goal, however.5) Spanoudakis has always chosen to represent Germany at international level, and has achieved relative success. In 2013 he won the Bruno de Marchi U15 tournament with Germany, playing in wins over Scotland and Russia. He now plays for their U16 side.They say:“The payer has explained to Sport that while it’s true that he has an offer from Arsenal, he has others from Germany, and has yet to decide which one he will accept.”– Sport on Spanoudakis’ future.Video evidenceArsenal fans, is signing young players from Barcelona something you should continue to do?
