Continue fight against public corruption

Published:Monday | February 6, 2017 | 2:00 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir:

This is an open letter to Professor Carolyn Cooper.

I write this letter in response to articles you have had published in The Gleaner for the past three weeks, the first being about the seeming disregard of our Government about public access to beaches and, second, about the alleged selling of public road spaces to the Chinese.

This letter is to thank you for your journalistic investigations into these matters and for bringing them to public attention. Indeed, we need more of this to be done in order to expose the corrupt, or if not corrupt, then unjust and incorrect, practices that have been the norm in our country for many years.

Sadly, perceived corruption has been the norm because no one has ever seen the need to highlight it.

Your highlighting of these issues has indeed caused me to act and has also encouraged me to solicit the help of my friends and family to act in countering this plague. We have all signed the petition to our prime minister concerning the issues with our beaches.

Please continue your excellent work, as the common man does not have the skills, connections, or resources to do the same.
