Dear Editor, Please refer to a letter which appeared in the Saturday, February 17, of Stabroek News captioned ‘Town Clerk is in control with the blessing of the Mayor and some Councillors.’ As we examined the contents of the letter written by the Councillor, we recognized that it is riddled with inaccuracies and it is not a true representation of the facts.
Dear Editor, Influenced as I am and have been since my early career as a school teacher that the focus of our basic educational pursuits should be both academic and attitudinal, I was recently impressed by a publication I chanced upon in my daughter’s home in Toronto (she herself is a School Superintendent with the Toronto District School Board).

Dear Editor, While I too share the same anxieties as many compatriots over whether government’s share of the revenues from the 2016 petroleum agreement will be the bonanza to finally launch the country into the economic stratosphere, the fact of the matter is we live in a world with established rules and expectations on how international business is conducted and how investment decisions are made by big corporations.

The phenomenon of power syndrome is somewhat puzzling, but it is too common a complaint to be denied.
Dear Editor, It is totally unacceptable that insurance companies are now forcing prospective customers to declare their political affiliation on a Customer Verification Form, because this is a flagrant violation of every citizen’s right to freedom of association as enshrined in the founding charter of the United Nations (UN).

In the wake of the latest mass shooting, what more can be said about the unconscionable lack of gun control in America?
Dear Editor, If the Guyana Chronicle’s article, ‘Calls grow for King’s removal’ (Feb 15) with regard to recent correspondence from Minister of Communities Ronald Bulkan to Mayor of Georgetown Patricia Chase-Green is accurate, and I have no reason to believe otherwise, I welcome the Minister’s wise counsel, and hope the Mayor acquiesces to giving the information the Minister has requested.
