Local government debate heartening - Schmidt
Deputy chair of the Jamaica Debates Commission, Brian Schmidt says the tone set in last night’s local government debate was refreshing.
His comment was made against the recent contentious US election campaign which resulted in fiery debates between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
Schmidt says the exchange of pleasantries between local government minister Desmond McKenzie and Mayor of Kingston, Angella Brown Burke was especially heartening.
