Julietta Gonzague is the new public relations officer (PRO) of the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP).
Gonzague, who up until recently taught at the Vide Boutielle Secondary School, is better known to the St .Lucian public as Julie Bee, the calypsonian. She has a bachelors degree in mass communications from Grambling State University.
At her inaugural press conference on Friday, the SLP PRO tackled a number of issues in the public domain including the findings of the Review on the use of Taiwanese Funds by the former United Workers Party (UWP) administration.
Gonzague accused the UWP of sidestepping the damning issues contained in the report.
In all of Allen Chastenet’s arguments, she said, he has yet to respond to a revelation in the audit implicating him: the existence of five cheques totalling $38,644 which were used to fund his election campaign in Soufriere.
The UWP organization maintained that during its tenure funds were managed appropriately, however Gonzague pointed out that the audit’s contents are clear as day, conducted by qualified individuals and substantiated by official documentation.
According to Gonzague, further audits are being undertaken into other social development activities, the results of which will be revealed at a later date.
