Administrator Hosts March Open House Meetings With Three Cabinet Heads

March 23, 2009 – As part of a year-round effort to raise awareness on community concerns of St. John, Administrator Leona Smith informs the general public of the March schedule for this month's open house sessions at the Battery. This month the Office of the St. John Administrator is hosting Department of Property and Procurement Commissioner Lynn Millin and Bureau of Motor Vehicles Director Jerris T. Browne on March 26, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., on Thursday, March 26, at the Battery. Residents will also have the opportunity to speak with Bureau of Internal Revenue Director Gizette Canegata-Thomas from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., on Monday, March 30, at the same location, according to a press release from the Office of the Governor. The open house initiative was created to give St. Johnians the opportunity to meet one-on-one with the governor's cabinet and to provide the administration with important feedback on a variety of issues. The meetings are being held on a monthly basis throughout the year.
"Since the inaugural meeting in January, we have had tremendous success with the St. John Open House forums. During the community meetings, members of the cabinet receive important feedback from residents regarding a variety of issues. Whether the concerns focus on public safety, sewage and waste disposal, or new development efforts, we are providing an informal and accessible avenue for the residents of St. John to express their selves and to be heard. I encourage all interested residents of St. John to participate in this month's Open House forum and in future sessions, as well," Governor de Jongh said.
