The lineup of potential candidates for the Banjul Mayor election is growing. A new entrant Paul Bass yesterday announced he will run for the BCC top job.
Bass, a former director of flight safety standards at the Gambia Civil Aviation Authority, told The Standard he has ‘big-bold ideas to create a beautiful Banjul that all will be proud of’.
“Banjul will be revitalised and its strength restored to provide a healthy future for her current and next generation,” Bass vowed.
He added: “I am going to do politics differently and will set an inspiring vision for what exists on land and our seas, aiming for a healthy habitat with thriving species and an environment, meaning a healthy future for the next generation and indeed for ourselves.”
Mr Bass also promised to reform the operations of public service institutions in Banjul, saying his top priority will be to invest in the City’s infrastructural development.
“As a Mayor my priority will be to invest in our infrastructure, improve our drainage and sewage systems, roads and easing congestion,” he said.
