  1. Why blame the previous administration which doled millions to the Hamilton Green town Hall and did nothing to improve the city(?) NO! Not city but SHITTY. Green was and still is the biggest obstacle to the redevelopment of Georgetown. That man carries a serious baggage of corruption, embezzlement, murder, deceit, arrogance and among others, incompetence as a Mayor. It is your right to support who you want to but you must call a spade a spade.

  2. Massiah you are the current clown, is people like you who allow Mr. Jagdeo to come into power previously.

  3. Well said brother. What he should say is the flooding is due to the blatant neglect of the city by the previous clowns under jagdeo.

  4. You is a fool smh yall need to think before to speak at times… Old ppl had a saying if you dont have nothing good to talk keep your mouth close
