2015-05-05 06:00

Well done, councillor Kevin Southgate.

What a wonderful victory as you deserve it, my good friend and mentor. You were blessed with the right job; with you in it you can make that all important difference that you always strived for.

You will show many people with the same portfolio that you can do it better and you will walk the walk and not talk too much but will be the driving force behind a better life for all within our communities. Your were instrumental in the safety of our communities and now the platform and foundation is laid for you to go that extra mile for us all in the greater Retreat and Lavender Hill.

The people of ward 72 could not ask for a better councillor and you will have our blessed support. This is the best thing that could ever happen to you and your family as they always wanted the best for you.

Keep up the good work and hopefully we will have the same position in 2016.

I am inspired by your work and your mentorship and I embrace the guidance to the community
