Plaisance residents continue to reject gov’t-appointed overseer
The government’s move to install the man was met with strong resistance on Wednesday and today the residents were camping out to prevent the man from taking up his chair.
Shawn Austin APNU member said what is of concern to them is that the man had a criminal past, he is not qualified for the job and he lacks the experience.
He said others within the community applied but their applications were rejected. He is replacing the long serving overseer for the past 15 years at Plaisance.
Austin said the residents are not going to be pushed over like what occurred in the past. He spoke of the lands that were taken for Prado Ville 2, sections of the burial ground and the recent efforts to sell these vacant lands to a private developer.
