Island Governors meet | THE DAILY HERALD


Saba Island Governor Jonathan Johnson (centre) on Thursday hosted a meeting with his colleagues Island Governor Edison Rijna (left) of Bonaire and National Government Commissioner Mike Franco (right) of St. Eustatius.

This island governors’ meeting was the first one again after a long time. The idea of it is to share experiences that the governors are confronted with on their respective islands. Several topics were discussed, such as their shared request to The Hague for expansion of their powers similar to the mayors in the Netherlands have on public order and safety, developments on crisis and disaster management and some general developments. Rijna and Franco will attend today’s, Friday’s, Saba Day ceremony and festivities.
