“FA’AFETAI TO PUBLIC WORKS DIRECTOR FOR TAKING THE INITIATIVE”
I am so happy to read in your 08/18/11 issue that Public Works has submitted an application with The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) for a project which includes “…an inter-island vessel for the Manu’a Island group…”!
At this point, we are happy to know that our government-via Public Works- is being mindful of our needs – and has taken a step in the right direction. We’ll leave all the fussing and the fighting to the committee members on who takes the credit for such a good deed.
Now, we pray that the pending application will be approved in the near future so we can secure a reliable, sufficient, proper vessel to operate between Manu’a & Tutuila!
Faafetai PW Director Punaofo for taking the initiative to get the ball rolling. As for the “…government agency who oversees all matters pertaining to government vessels…”, look at the big picture and don’t let this effort in the right direction cause ill feelings. Instead, let it be an example of the great things that can be accomplished – if we work together for the good of the people!
O ma Iesu,
