[www.inewsguyana.com] – Deputy Mayor, Patricia Chase – Green today revealed that Town Clerk (ag), Carol Sooba allegedly attempted to bribe Mayor Hamilton Green.
At a press conference, the Deputy Mayor said “recently Miss Sooba attempted to bribe the Mayor, because she called him last Friday to say Mr. Mayor you and I can work together, what I am going to do, I’m gonna fix up your office, I’m gonna buy furniture for your office, I am going to do blinds for your office, I am going to refurbish your office.”
However, Chase-Green said her offer was rejected by the City Mayor, since he has no interest in taking any bribes.
“The Government is using Miss Carol Ryan Sooba as an instrument to cause unrest in the city of Georgetown,” Chase – Green said.
Meanwhile, Mayor Green said it was a sad day for the country since ordinary citizens were prevented from entering City Hall by Sooba and her bodyguard who is a “person of questionable character.”
Green condemned Sooba’s behavior against citizens of Georgetown, who were unable to transact business with the council, due to Sooba’s instruction to prevent persons from entering the compound, after the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and councilors organized a meeting for residents of the city to educate them about their rights relating to local government elections.
