London announces changes for THA Executive Council

TOBAGO House of Assembly (THA) Chief Secretary Orville London has made three changes to his
executive council as a result of the absence of Roxborough/Delaford West Assemblyman Hilton Sandy, who is recovering from a stroke.

Sandy will be replaced as Secretary of Infrastructure and Public Utilities by Councillor Gary Melville, who has been overseeing his constituency.

Secretary of Settlements and Labour Huey Ca­dette will replace Melville as Secretary of Education, Youth Affairs and Sport while Assistant Sec­retary Councillor Deon Isaac will replace Cadette.

Isaac, who is also the deputy presiding officer, will be sworn in as secretary by President Anthony Carmona in Tobago next Thursday.

The Assembly will elect a new deputy presiding officer at its next plenary sitting on Thursday, February 27.
The changes were announced by London at his weekly media briefing on Wednesday.

The Chief Secretary also revealed that Sandy, who suffered a stroke on his right side last September, will be going to the Bap­tist Medical Centre Rehabilitation Unit in South Florida, USA, for rehabilitation, assessment and management.

London said he was ho­ping for an improvement in his physical condition. He said the decision to send San­dy to Florida was on the recommendation of hospital medical director Dr Nathaniel Noel.

The Assembly will foot the bill for Sandy’s accommodation, rehabilitation and other related issues.
London said Sandy had shown advancement in his physical condition, but a lot more improvement had to be made fom him to return to his former condition.

He said he was hoping for an improvement in Sandy’s condition and wanted to wish him all the best on behalf of all Tobagonians.
