New Director To Be Erskine “Booza” King?
Notice to Readers: The following is totally rumour from an anonymous source.
The operations of the Barbados Urban Development Commission are of great interest to every citizen – or should be – because of the UDC’s well-deserved reputation for being a source of money that can be easily directed to friends of the government.
Once again, the following information is at this point totally unconfirmed rumour.
Welcome to the standpipe…
I am an ardent fan of your website and I do hope that you continue to provide an avenue for all to express their views and concerns on matters that are dear to them.
I am an employee at the UDC and rather than post this information on one of your threads, I take this opportunity to email you. The Director of the UDC, O’Brien Trotman will be going home (finally) on July 31st and will be replaced by Erskine “Booza” King. The staff at the commission have not been told as yet and I have no idea when they will be told.
This is to make way for Adrian Donavan to become the director of the Sports Council.
Another person was offered the position at the UDC, but that individual said no. Erskine King accepted the offer with glee. (And your guess is as good as mine why he was so gleeful).
The Commission is currently staffed with a lot of new people PRIMARILY from St. Michael North East. Yes, Ms. Mottley has ministerial responsibility for the UDC, and every week there is somebody new comig to work at the place. Some of these people are graduates and others are simple Joes and Janes.
Should everyone turns up for work there simply are not enough chairs to accommodate everyone. A truly sad state of affairs.
Trevor Prescod was livid when he was given the Ministry of Social Transformation minus the UDC. That should read….. minus the pork barrel.
Or trough. Take your pick.
I wanted to pass on this info since a week ago, but as I said I decided against posting it as you may want to do your own investigation to verify whether it is so or not. You can take my word, but you don’t have to.
Check it out.
