Sint Maarten, needs time to build the new country. That was said by Dennis Richardson, a member of the Advisory Board of St. Maarten and objective member of the Council of State.
Richardson is one of the main advisers of St. Maarten and accompanied Prime Sarah Wescot-Williams on her visit in the Netherlands. Meanwhile, it is said that St. Maarten’s Richardson is up for appointment as a member of the Council of State. He does not know about it, but the decision is in the Royal Council of Ministers.
Richardson said shortly after it was leaked: "It robs you a little freedom to say no, when you want to keep that freedom." If it continues then he is an associate member of the Advisory Board. "So I can continue to contribute to the building of St. Maarten."
Richardson says about the future that his country faces a huge challenge to the new state of reality. "That we see every day since 10/10/10." Much needs to be rebuilt from the ground. "We do not hang the head. There is a tremendous enthusiasm." Richardson hopes the good will of the Netherlands will help: "Rome was not built in one day. We need time."
