Long-time vocal critic of Mission city hall now backing former mayor in county race

Long-time vocal critic of Mission city hall now backing former mayor in county race

first_imgPolitics can be a strange game. And observers of the game need look no farther than Mission where a vocal city hall critic for the last four years, Bill Nichols, is now supporting the former mayor for county commissioner.Bill Nichols (R) listens to his council opponent, Suzie Gibbs, during a candidate forum earlier this year ath the Sylvester Powell Community Center.Nichols is known for his website, SaveMission.net, that has been a focal point for criticism of city government. Often at the point of the criticism was former Mission Mayor Laura McConwell and former city administrator Mike Scanlon. Now, Nichols is not only backing McConwell in her run for the county commission, but he is actively recruiting people to place signs for her.Nichols, also known for videotaping city council meetings, started the site in 2010. The city’s Transportation Utility Fee (TUF), known as the “driveway tax” to opponents, was the impetus for Nichols to create his site and vocally oppose a number of city initiatives. “The driveway tax: that’s what set me off,” Nichols says. He helped organize a march on city hall over the issue.Nichols and a core group also were critical of the city on other issues – especially around funding – including the rebuild of the city pool, the Johnson Drive (west of Lamar) and Nall Avenue projects. Nichols says, he was “never against Laura McConwell” but against some of the initiatives she backed as mayor. And, he never questioned her leadership abilities, he says. “She is good at gathering people (around an idea).”Nichols also wants to see Mission represented on the commission and McConwell, he says, has been the face of Mission for the last decade. When he sent out a recent email to his group announcing his support for McConwell, many of the people in his group couldn’t believe it – and he got some pushback, he says.In the recent city election, Nichols ran for city council and was beaten by incumbent Suzie Gibbs. He also was a strong supporter of newly-elected Mayor Steve Schowengerdt. No longer videotaping at council meetings, Nichols, 74, is leaving his website up. “But, it’s a whole different ball game,” he says of the city with new council members, administrator and mayor. And the postings have slowed down since the April election, but not stopped.last_img read more

Rain has final say in Ivan Madray 100-ball final

Rain has final say in Ivan Madray 100-ball final

first_imgThe highly-anticipated clash between energetic Young Warriors Cricket Club and Rose Hall Town Gizmos and Gadgets in the final of the Berbice Cricket Board/Ivan Madray 100-ball tournament will now be played in 2019 after overnight rains forced the match to be called off. This is according to Berbice Cricket Board President, Hilbert Foster who told this publication that the groundsmen had communicated to his body that Port Mourant Community Centre Ground was unable to host the final due to the weather.Stabroek News understands that the venue for the final did not have a cover for the pitch.Both captains expressed disappointment that the match was called off. Shawn Pereira, who captains Rose Hall Town, said they were looking to end the year on a high and with the addition of Clinton Pestano, they were in it with a good chance. Similarly, Young Warriors’ skipper, Suresh Dhanai said he was looking forward to the inclusion of Shimron Hetmyer who would have made an immediate impact to the side’s chances.Young Warriors have played three tournaments since their revival a few months ago, making it to the final of each of the tournaments, losing both times to Rose Hall and will look to break the jinx when the final is finally played.last_img read more
