Kingston Mayor charges councillors

Posted: April 10, 2012

Mayor of Kingston Angella Brown-Burke has charged her councillors to get to work.

The new mayor was addressing the 24 People's National Party councillors who were sworn in this morning at the Jamaica Conference Centre in Downtown Kingston.

The Jamaica Labour Party councillors carried out their threat to boycott the swearing in ceremony over what they claim was a politicizing of the swearing in ceremony.

The councillors will have to await the regular monthly meeting of the KSAC next month before being able to take the oath of office.

Mrs Brown-Burke implored the councillors present to get out of election mode and work towards the benefit of the residents of the corporate area.

The mayor said that the council will not be paralyzed by endless discussions when important decisions are to be made.

The station officially went on air on August 1, 1990. Reggae in the morning, Reggae in the evening, Reggae in the night was the cry. Critics said it was impossible to sustain a 24-hour Reggae music station. In fact, so strong was the impact, it proved that this format was something the Jamaican public yearned for. The 'little station that could' got all media houses in Jamaica to stand up and take note.
