Newly installed Deputy Mayor Sherod Duncan has made it clear that a forensic audit is necessary at City Hall, in view of the fact that a new Council is taking over. Duncan has stated that an audit should be entered into in good faith.He expressed these sentiments at City Hall, after his election on Friday. Patricia Chase-Green was elected as the city’s new Mayor and 30 Councilors as determined in the recently concluded Local Government Elections (LGE), were sworn in.“That is one of the things I think is necessary,” Duncan stated. “The Mayor has been here before as part of Council, but in good faith for the persons that are taking over I think it is something that should be looked into.”After the LGE debate of March 6, Duncan had been one of the five debaters who had been united in expressing the need for a forensic audit of City Hall, the others being Mark Benschop, Clayon Halley, Dr. Phillip Thomas and Michael Leonard.Since the change in Government in May of 2015, City Hall, in consort with the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance for Change (APNU+AFC) government has embarked on a massive city wide cleanup campaign.It has produced radical results, with many areas which were riddled with sanitary issues now garbage free.
