Georgetown Mayor Hamilton Green has officially announced he is no longer interested in the Mayorship ever again, but will still be contesting in the upcoming Local Government Elections in a different capacity. However, Green has refused to divulge the area in which he will be contesting at the upcoming Local Government polls.
Speaking with the media on Monday, Green said that he is hoping the person who is elected as the next mayor of Georgetown is “young and able” to serve in that capacity especially with respect to the restoration of the City.
Under Green’s leadership, there were numerous complaints from various sections of the population about the poor conditions of the City. Many believe that Green had served in the position for too long and he was mainly responsible for the deteriorating conditions of the City.
When asked whether he was proud of his legacy as Mayor, Green shared he is only proud of what he has been able to accomplish over the past few months when the APNU/AFC government took office. He added that he had to endure over 20 years of frustration under the previous administration.
Green who is in his 80s has served as Mayor of Georgetown since 1996.
