~Mullet Bay in the News, but behind closed doors~

Whether by design or default, Mullet Bay appears twice on the schedule of parliament this week.

Unfortunately, none of these times, will the general public be privy to the discussions regarding this piece of real estate that is not only reminiscent of a buoyant period of our tourism industry but also of near full employment in the hotel sector of the entire island, both north and south, MP Wescot stated on Sunday evening, ahead of the meetings on Monday.

MP Wescot-Williams explained that of the 2 meetings that are scheduled this week on the topic of Mullet Bay, one has to do with the objection petition filed by over 2000 persons against the development of Mullet Bay Beach, and the other meeting is one of the Committee Parliamentary Inquiry Mullet Bay, both scheduled behind closed doors.

The Minister of VROMI has replied to the questions by the petitioners, and parliament -via the petition committee- has to now decide on the next steps, the MP further explained.

On the topic of the Mullet Bay Inquiry Committee of Parliament, it should be noted that this committee, established in 2019, had estimated 8 months to accomplish what it had set out to do, namely Give Mullet Bay Back to the People Read more

La Parlamentaria Sarah Wescot-Williams Critica El Presupuesto De 2022 Y La Negativa Del Gobierno A Eliminar El Recorte Del 12,5 % En Los Beneficios De Las Entidades (Semi)Pblicas.

No puedo creer que en realidad escuch que aplaudan al Ministro.

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten – El Ministro de Finanzas y los miembros de su coalicin en el parlamento deben haber respirado aliviados, cuando el martes por la noche se derrib el mazo sobre el presupuesto enmendado 2022, segn la opinin de la parlamentaria Wescot.

Afortunadamente para la coalicin, pudieron reunir en el ltimo momento, el mnimo de miembros necesarios para aprobar la ley de presupuesto. Afortunadamente, porque al da siguiente, al menos 2 miembros de la coalicin estaban programados para viajar por cuenta del parlamento.

Y para probar su punto de que los ministros del gobierno no tienen respeto por el parlamento o el pueblo, la parlamentaria agreg: el nico ministro que se present a estas discusiones presupuestarias fue el propio Ministro de Finanzas, y las respuestas con respecto a los otros ministerios fueron nada menos que una broma.

En una referencia obvia a la negativa del presidente del parlamento a actuar de manera imparcial, la parlamentaria no escatim palabras cuando afirm que las reuniones sobre el proyecto de presupuesto 2022 no fueron ms que drama en su mayor parte, drama del que Me negu a ser parte de eventualmente, an sabiendo que sin la oposicin y sin pasar lista, el presupuesto sera aprobado ‘por unanimidad’.

Mejor eso que ser un participante activo en lo que solo puede ser etiquetado como un espectculo de circo.

La parlamentaria se refiri al proyecto de ley que modifica la ordenanza de ingresos mximos (top income ley) que el gobierno propuso al parlamento, como cuando, en su opinin, comenz el circo.

Con todo eso, el gobierno sigue chapuceando los recortes en los beneficios salariales de las entidades (semi)pblicas.

La parlamentaria Wescot haba propuesto una enmienda para eliminar estos recortes salariales de la ley que regula los ingresos ms altos, que desafortunadamente no pudo reunir suficiente apoyo para ser aprobada.

Qu irnico, que en una ley que asegura que los ingresos ms altos del sector (semi)pblico no superen el plus salarial del PM, se mantengan los recortes salariales del 12,5%, etc Read more

Bus Drivers Request Increase In Bus Fares Starting January

United Bus Drivers Association president Claude Omeus.

PHILIPSBURG--From January 2023, bus passengers will pay more for a bus ride if it is up to United Bus Drivers Association. President Claude Omeus said the increase is necessary due to the high cost of living on the island.
