Sickened by golf course report

November 25, 2014

Dear Sir,

Having just read the opinion piece of MP Sylvan Richards, and the report by Jonathan Bell of the Port Royal refurbishment project, I feel sick to my stomach.

There is so much suggestion of financial malfeasance, corruption, incompetence and disregard for the people's money.

The Auditor General says that those who neglected to protect public funds must be held to account. She went on to say she found extensive cost overruns, a lack of oversight and total disregard for the rules in place for govt expenditure, including a lack of tendering and conflicts of interest with members of the Port Royal board of trustees.

The Auditor General also says that the administration of the funds pertaining to the Port Royal project, were unlawfully distributed.

As a tax paying citizen, what is going to be done to hold those responsible to account? Many people are tired of reading report after report that leads to nothing. We hear of so much wrong doing. We wonder if anything will be done

Many of us are suffering because of the maladministration of govt, we deserve to get answers and we deserve accountability of our elected officials.

Fed Up

Overbudget: The cost of revamping Port Royal Golf Course soared beyond its original estimate
