…“He lies too much!”Georgetown Constituency Six Councillor Andrea Marks on Tuesday convened a silent protest in the midst of an ongoing statutory meeting, calling for Town Clerk Royston King to be booted.Councillor Andrea Marks protesting in the midst of the statutory meetingMarks held up placards which read “Royston King must go!” and “Has Royston taken up from where Sooba left off?” as the Mayor and other Councillors were discussing city matters. Her protest comes on the heels of the Town Clerk’s decision to have vendors on Robb Street near Bourda Market cease selling because of a clean-up exercise without any prior notice.“I’m upset that he didn’t give these vendors any notice, especially those from my constituency. If we were given notice, there wouldn’t be a need to kick up a storm, but is the manner in which he is doing things. He needs to remember he is not the boss,” Marks said in an interview with Guyana Times Tuesday evening.She stated if the vendors were given notice, they would have been able to prepare themselves for the exercise. “Those people had perishable goods, all spoil because King just did what he felt like doing,” she said, adding that he should be given the boot for his “stupid” attitude.“He has to go, because he is lying too much and he is making the same mistake over and over,” she said, noting that King acted of his own accord and did not even inform the Councillors of his decision.“I didn’t even know until the vendors call and tell me they are being put out,” she stressed. Marks stated that King was “not a person that should be trusted”, because he was becoming famous for actions such as this.Vendors had stated that the Town Clerk, along with City Constabulary Officers, turned up and ordered everyone to remove their stalls and goods and vehicles from the area.“They never tell we anything. Royston King just come and shut the place down and tell everybody move out,” said one distraught vendor.The vendors griped that they had suffered hundreds of thousands in losses, since most of their merchandise was perishable.“I now come here, I ain’t even sell a load yet. All me goods gon spoil. Watch the plantain them getting black’ black, cause everything ga deh in the sun. The cassava ga throw way, it get blue. All that is money down the drain!” one vendor had complained.
