Ministry of Social Services, Community Development and Gender Affairs, Department of Local Government and Community Development hosted a National Consultation for Local Government Stakeholders with the theme “Consolidating our gains, building stronger communities.”
The Mayor of Roseau Mr. Cecil Joseph says more autonomy should be given to the local authorities not only because of more respect but for further community development among communities.
Mr. Joseph stated that many people disrespect the collection of race much more than the rules and regulations within councilors. In addition he added that the economic sector needs a lot more focus.
Minister for Social Services, Community Development and Gender Affairs Ms. Gloria Shillingford commends all the people for working together with the ministry of social services.
Ms. Shillingford believes that positive attitude and patience are the main factors needed in order to develop the community further.
