THE EDITOR, Sir:
Can I be presumptuous enough to remind The Gleaner of your front-page story of Tuesday, April 3, titled 'Brown Burke sworn in', which had as its underline: 'Promises to tackle rats as first order of business'. It read:
"As her first order of business, newly elected mayor of Kingston, Angela Brown Burke, says she would be working with the relevant agencies to undertake an intensive clean-up campaign in the municipality, as well as implement a permanent solution to the problem of rodent infestation."
Now how does that compute with your Page A2 story on Wednesday, September 12, 2012, about the Supreme Court being taken over by rats?
Interestingly, on August 23, Arthur Hall's article headlined 'Brown Burke decries criticisms about 'silent KSAC', said Brown Burke scoffed at criticisms that her council has been dormant since she assumed its chairmanship in April, quoting the mayor as saying, "I'm one of those persons who likes to talk about things when they are almost done, because there has been so much talk and so many announcements that people have become cynical.
"So part of what I want to do is the behind-the-scenes work and talk with our partners ... to have the kind of discussions that get us somewhere."
Boy, this behind-the-scenes working is really being exposed for what it is! It's the same thing the prime minister is telling us. I wonder what her exposure will be like?
