Island Planner Is Coming, Says Government House

Governor John deJongh has all intentions of making good on his campaign promise to hire a planner for Love City, according to Government House spokesperson John Greaux.

“The governor will live up to the campaign pledge to hire a planner,” said Greaux. “A promise was made during the campaign and it will be kept.”

DeJongh is still ironing out the logistics of the position, explained Greaux.

“He is just formalizing what the duties and responsibilities of the position will be and how they will interact with the St. John Administrator,” he said.

Greaux was not specific on when the position is expected to be filled.

“In the not too distant future,” was all the Govern-ment House spokesperson said about a timeline for having a planner on board.
