New Administrator Arrives
- New Administrator for Tristan arrives
Tristan Times (Sarah Glass)
To many islanders the arrival of the SA Agulhas at the beginning of
September is an indication that spring and good weather is on its way,
it is also the wish of many family and friends visiting the island for
the three weeks of the Agulhas stay. Within that time three babies
have been baptise, there is to be a wedding, and many birthday parties
and receptions. The new Administrator for the next three years Sean
and his wife Marinda has arrived and was sworn in on September the
15th as we say goodbye to the previous Administrator David Morley and
his wife Jackie.
In the Chief Islanders speech at his reception on Sunday the 19th Sep
Ian spoke of the difficulties when David first arrived on the island,
he and the island council, had to make a number of difficult
decisions, to prevent the island from going bankrupt, the introduction
of Taxes, increase in medical and community charges etc., and that
David could be proud that during his three years he did the best he
could, for the island, and for that, the community and himself, wish
David and Jackie all the very best for the future.
He welcomed the new Administrator Sean and his wife Miranda, stating
that Sean had arrived at a very crucial time, given the financial
situation we now find ourselves in. As we had over time shifted from
a subsistence â"based economy to one that was cash based. Have enjoyed
full employment and stability, and proud of it. At the same time
knowing that all this was about to change, as Tristanâs reserves were
lower than they have ever been.
But on a positive Ian noted that the Tristanians were resourceful, and
had overcome many difficulties in the past, and by working together,
were confident that a solution could be found that was fair to
everyone, and one that will continue to help Tristanians retain their
independent life style.

Why Mr. Glass's name appears immediately above is not explained, nor are we told whether the new Administrator has a last name.
Maybe I am missing something, but why is Me. Glass' name appearing immediately above an issue? It's early in the morning here in the USA so I may not be fully understanding, lol.
I'm curious, I've noted your email address as eastcaribbean.com.. what is your connection to Tristan?
I just wanted to say I enjoy this list, I enjoy reading news about/from Tristan. I've had contact with 1 person on Tristan and enjoy learning all I can from other folks. Reading about other countries is fascinating.
