Reunited, and it feels so good

Reunited ‘cause we understood

There’s one perfect fit

And, sugar, this one is it

We both are so excited ‘cause we’re reunited, hey, hey

Back in late February, we reported on an incident that occurred at the City Hall on North Front Street in Belize City. That same incident led to Councilor Micah Goodin getting stripped of his portfolio and being publicly humiliated by the Mayor at a special press conference where all the other councilors sat in solidarity with the Mayor.

Persons who may not know the inner workings of the PUP or the glue that holds that party together, could have easily been misled into believing that the impasse was the end of the relationship between Micah and the PUP. For us who know better, we knew it was only a sort of SELF-GOVERNMENT STATUS that Micah was given; it was not INDEPENDENCE. We knew it would not be long before the Mayor and his Councilors kissed and made up back with Micah.

Apparently, that reconciliation happened this past Tuesday and was made public the following day on Wednesday through the following sheepishly worded press release from City Hall.

“COUNCILOR GOODIN REASSIGNED HIS PORTFOLIO

(Wednesday, April 10, 2019) The Belize City Council informs the residents of the city that Councilor Micah Goodin has been reassigned the portfolio of Management Information Systems (MIS), Training and Staff Development, Youth and Sports, effective April 10th, 2019.

The Council met in a closed Caucus on Tuesday, April 9, where it was determined that appropriate measures have been satisfied and that it is in the best interest of the City to reintegrate Councilor Goodin fully with the reassignment of his portfolio. The Councilor has expressed that he took the Mayor’s advice and used the past weeks to reflect on his role and how that aligns with the Council’s mandate to serve the people.

The Council thanks Deputy Mayor Arnold, Councilors Pitts and Elijio who took up leading the relevant portfolios in the interim.”

Micah, it appears, was so happy to be back in love with his colleagues, that he resorted to poetry, when he penned the following letter.

“Dear Belize City,

You prayed for me during the darkest days of my political career. Thank you for loving and believing in me when my spirit was so low that it was hard to even believe in myself. I love you all and wish only to serve you. Being here has been an unlikely journey.Where I come from this is a scarce opportunity. I do not take it for granted. I will continue to work so that life may improve for as many as possible.Thank you, Mayor Wagner and all my colleagues.”

All those roses, chocolates Teddy bears and kisses being shared at this time may be short-lived, because with Micah being the disrespectful hot head we know him to be, we will be seeing a sequel to what occurred in February.

Kiss… Kiss… XO XOXO….
