Life in Good Hope Phase Three cannot be ‘dignified’ when the road cannot be resurfaced

Dear Editor,

I am following the Budget presentation this week in Parliament and as a resident of Good Hope Phase Three on the East Coast of Demerara, it was disheartening to hear Minister within the Ministry of Communities Valerie Patterson say that the APNU+AFC administration had embarked on a journey towards “the good life,” inclusive of providing accessible and affordable housing in sanitary and safe communities, with the necessities for “wholesome and dignified living for citizens in need”.

I believe that Minister Valerie Patterson and her team need to take a visit to Good Hope Phase Three and see how dignified and sanitary the circumstances are in which their tax-paying citizens are living, and let them know what happened to the moneys they paid for their lands? And they should say why this section of road cannot be resurfaced or at least the potholes patched.

Yours faithfully,
