JUST call him “Ray” from now on.
This was the request, according to one local government councillor, made of the staff and officials of the Port of Spain City Corporation after Port of Spain Mayor Raymond Tim Kee tendered his resignation to the chief executive officer of the corporation yesterday.
In accordance with the Municipal Corporations Act, Deputy Mayor Keron Valentine is now set to accept the mayoral chain today, to become custodian of the capital city at age 31.
Valentine, in an interview with the media outside City Hall yesterday evening, said Tim Kee tendered his resignation around 3 p.m. yesterday, following which he held court with his former officers to exchange pleasantries and discuss the future of some of the development projects started under him (Tim Kee).
Valentine said the yesterday’s convention was not to facilitate a position on the resignation from the council.
Asked the reasons offered by Tim Kee for the resignation, Valentine said the former mayor “did not go into that”. (Taken from the Trinidad Express)
