Tree planting to honour first Black Civil Service head
Bermuda’s first Black head of the Civil Service was yesterday honoured with a tree-planting ceremony at the Cabinet Office.
Mr Burt said Kenneth Richardson “had a long and distinguished career in the public service”.
He added: “A consummate public officer who always elevated the institutions he served, Bermuda remembers him as a man of commitment and character.”
Mr Richardson, who died in March aged 82, was Cabinet Secretary from 1984 until 1993.
The tree-planting ceremony was attended by Mr Richardson’s two children, Andrew Richardson and Tammy Richardson-Augustus.
