“Always hold the highest of standards and govern your personal life in such a way that that you do not bring disrepute to your office,” said Chief Magistrate Ferguson-Pratt. “The judicial oath that you are taking is the same that all leaders in the country including Cabinet Ministers and Judges take.  The only difference is the post that you will occupy.”

She also congratulated them for having been appointed to their new post and told them that someone has reposed confidence in them so they should carry out their duties at the highest standards.

The Administrators will commence their duties on March 1.  Director of Local Government, Ms. Brenda Colebrooke said that additional administrators will be sworn in during the upcoming months.
