POSTED: 02/11/13 2:42 PM

St. Maarten – Prime Minister Sarah Wescot-Williams surprised members of the Economic Affairs Department Inspection Unit at a swearing in ceremony for extraordinary police officers at the Sheer Restaurant on Friday. The prime minister congratulated Claudette Labega and Mario Hodge who had their retirement party at the function.

“I want to say thank you to Claudette and to Mario for their contribution and also to those who will be celebrating their 25 years in government. I would also like to thank the Inspection Department head Mrs. Thewet for recognizing the service her employees have given. I think too often in government we overlook the contribution of the workers to St. Maarten. It is important that we do so here this afternoon.”

The prime minister said that she will be celebrating forty years in government this year, indicating with a smile that she started very young; “I would like to encourage the young civil servants to realize that public service is really rewarding. If that is your goal you can’t go wrong. We have faced and will face many challenges but with the knowledge that you are doing something for the people that is all the reward you need.”

The prime minister encouraged all to partake fully in the food and desserts made available to them at Sheer and “having said that I hope to see you in the U2 Can Move zumba classes soon.”
