‘Least qualified’ Sooba named as town clerk
-presented no certificates
‘It is unfair for the Local Government ministry to set up a criteria and ask for A, B, C and D and applicants came with those requirements and then you have somebody come like a dead horse from way on the outside with nothing at all to be appointed as Town Clerk. Where are we going? The only other place we can go is maybe to the court because what are we doing?’ – Deputy Mayor Patricia Chase-Green
After several months of acting in the capacity of Town Clerk for Georgetown, Carol Sooba was yesterday confirmed in the position, surprising city councillors who say she was least qualified for the position in a recent interview process that involved the Ministry of Local Government.
An earlier search process by the Mayor and City Council had ruled Sooba as ineligible for the post.
The announcement of Sooba’s confirmation was made by Head of the Presidential Secretariat Dr. Roger Luncheon at a post-cabinet briefing at the Office of the President yesterday.
