Mark,
Did you get a reply to this query?

I heard an announcement about a similar exercise on the East Coast today.
I thought we were moving away from the house lot for everyone and concentrating on homes for genuine low income families.

I know I have been out of the loop this month but I feel I don’t understand what is going on.

Are you between the ages of 18 and 35, interested in acquiring a house lot, then come out and let your voices be heard on the age policy.
Minister Valerie Adams-Patterson, Minister with responsibility for Housing, will be engaging youths from the Diamond, East Bank Demerara area for a discussion on whether the age at which a person can apply for a house lot should be reduced from 21 to 18.
If you live in the area or its environs, you are invited to attend and participate in the forum, on Friday September 23, from 17:00 hrs. at the Diamond Secondary School, Second Avenue, Diamond, EBD.

Valerie Patterson says CHPA board members cannot request info from the CEO

Something is wrong with these big negroes am telling you. Remember in February the minister instructed the IT Manager not to answer my memos? Well if that wasn’t ridiculous enough, check out the email below.

Negroes wanna get bogged down with protocol and which is soup spoon and which is spoon for sugar. I have no time for none of that bullshit. We have plenty work to do and time is running out.

Why should I not ask any officer or send them a direct memo? They hiding something? I am dealing with the people’s business. Plus all board members, the secretary of the board and ministers get copies of my emails. Ahhh fuck it.

I am not in a personality clash with anyone, but the level of scunt & ego these people carry around is beyond me.

I thought about responding but then decided naaaah. Everyone is copied on it. Chairman, board members, minister bulkan etc. they can see this for what it is and respond if they wish but I ain got time for foolishness.

If they haven’t already, it won’t be long before management rope her into the rackets.

Dear Mark JacobsI am really trying to understand how and why as a member of this board you are making request to the CEO for information /documentation. The CH&PA board has a Chairman and a Secretary in whom the authority is vested to make such requests. I have raised this matter before with Minister Bulkan yet it continues to be accommodated. I dare say that there are clear lines of authority set out for organisational operations and if and when not followed is recipe for confusion and disaster.
Trust that this kind of disrespect for line management does not repeat itself.

Re: Employment Contracts for next statutory meeting

Dear Minister Patterson,

With reference to the correspondence shown below, I do not share the view as expressed that it is disrespectful for a board member to request information from the CEO and that this … is a recipe for disaster. My interpretation of the governing legislation is that the ‘Authority’ in CH&PA is what is commonly referred to as the ‘Board’ and it these persons who hire staff to carry out the work of the Authority. Given this I do not understand what would prevent a 

Member from requesting information. 

Further, in the absence of specific regulations prohibiting a course of action, I am an adherent of the ‘School of Sunlight’, i.e. the one that holds the view that sunlight is the best disinfectant. This tells, therefore, on which side of a given issue I would prefer to err.

In any event Hon. Minister, I am open to being educated and would welcome learning from you what is the basis of your definitive pronouncements.  

Finally, I do not find Mr. Jacobs’ inquiry to be either offensive, disrespectful or ultra vires and, therefore, would urge caution before he follows your advice.

Looking forward to your reply.

Kind regards,

Ronald Bulkan 

Minister
