SPTC visits schools and Government offices in familiarization campaign


The newly elected San Pedro Town Council (SPTC) has taken the initiative to reach out to community schools and government offices in an effort to get acquainted and become informed of the needs of each entity. Led by Mayor Daniel Guerrero, the campaign took place during the week of  April 16th.

Visiting the schools served two purposes, the first being to introduce the children to the concept of Civic Pride. Children were invited to actively participate in a planned beautification project that will include the planting of various plants and flowers around the island. Mayor Danny also spoke to the children on the importance of keeping the island clean, with an emphasis on proper garbage disposal.

The second motive for the school visits was to familiarize the Council on the needs of each educational institution. Mayor Danny has invited various principals to submit, in writing, their petitions for assistance. The Mayor and his council have pledged to seek ways in which they can provide as much support as possible to the schools, always keeping in mind that the children are one of the major priorities of the present SPTC.

Throughout the week, the Council also visited the Post Office, Tax Office, the Police Department, the Fire Department and the Dr. Otto Rodriguez San Pedro PolyClinic II. The new Council took the opportunity to introduce themselves to the various bodies, as well as to foster a good working relationship with each one. Together the goal is to work towards the success of the island. Throughout the visits, the Mayor extended a helping hand as well as an invitation to the various organizations to work together for the betterment of the island.
