The Grand Bahama Port Authority (GBPA) hosted a block party on the Mall Drive and Pioneers Way over the weekend in celebration of the 50th anniversary of independence.
Vice Chairman of the GBPA Sarah St. George was in attendance and addressed the crowd. She said, “so this is about our transcendence from all the challenges. Its about our ascendance to new heights. It’s about the resplendence of God and most of all it’s about our 50th anniversary of independence.”
Also on hand was GBPA President Ian Rolle who also addressed the large audience. He said, “it feels so good that we’ve worked together through our struggles over the past few years in Freeport. And it feels so good that we as a people can make major decisions for the best of the majority in this country. Therefore let us work together in harmony.”
The GBPA and the government has been engaged in public conversation about the performance of the GBPA. In his budget communication in June Prime Minister, the Hon. Philip Davis said that “decisive action” was needed on the GBPA.
