UNC councillor appointed now Chairman of Sangre Grande Corporation


    The Sangre Grande Regional Corporation’s new Chairman is Vega de Oropouche councillor Anil Juteram.

    Mr Juteram was sworn in today, while his fellow UNC councillor Kenwyn Phillip was appointed vice-chairman.

    The UNC took control of the Sangre Grande Corporation after winning 5 out of the 8 electoral districts in the recent Local Government Elections.

    According to Newsday, outgoing Chairman Terry Rondon has since passed on some advice for the job.

    He reportedly urged the newly sworn-in councillors and aldermen not to be tempted by bribes while in office.

    He also told the council to always listen to the people, and to never turn anyone away.
