Us Party: The Abuse Of Our Most Vulnerable Must Stop

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten — Leader of the US party Mrs. Pamela Gordon-Carty on Sunday expressed great displeasure in how the citizens of country St. Maarten are being treated, especially senior citizens. In her opinion the same rhetoric is used every election to capture the vote of senior citizens after which they are forgotten while their cries continue to fall on deaf ears. I want to publicly convey my disgust with the behavior of promising in vain and using the weaknesses of this vulnerable group to roll in votes, it is a total disgrace, said Gordon-Carty.

The US party leader insisted that too many political games are played instead of dealing with what she termed low hanging fruit Read more

PHILIPSBURG:--- The Minister of Public Health, Social Development, and Labor, Omar Ottley is pleased to announce that the Council of Ministers has approved the bid submitted from Independent Consulting Engineers (ICE) to execute the technical aspect of the second cohort of the extensive home repair project.
