Letter by Councillor Kuppen is riddled with inaccuracies

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.

Impressed by publication on early childhood development

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).

Insurance companies are violating customers’ human rights

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).

The city has a crisis of administration and management

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.
