Expatriots’ Desires for Sosua

Traffic Safety
– Reduce motoconcho sound levels.
– Mirrors should be required on motoconchos for greater safety of taxi passengers.
– Motoconcho speeding is bad. Have the police ticket them and earn money for the village.

Tax Dollars for Sosua
– Raise money by enforcing speeding laws for motorcycles. 

Transportation
– Transportation in rain by taxis is almost impossible. I go to the Playero, and get stranded because there is no cheap transport. What can be done about this?

Communication:
– The post office needs a sign on the street. Please, get one added.

Shopping
– Prices need to be clearly marked for all services and products. Many vendors do not put prices on all their products. Then the checkout person looks at us, and sets the price high as he or she believes we will pay. This is very bad in small restaurants.

Protections for housing safety and valuation of condos, homes, etc.
– Zoning should be created and/or enforced to improve property safety and value.

 

Thank you,

Dear Madam Mayor,

I am a university professor, very near retirement with specialties in Community Psychology, ethics, and Criminal Justice. Would I be welcome as a volunteer in the municipal government of Sosua or in the national government?

Today is Thursday, September 5th. I have an appointment in one hour with the Mayor of Sosua at 1:00 PM, I will ask. This is in Spanish, so maybe I go slow, and she will allow two interviews.

Thanks
Andy Graham in Sosua, DR.

Thanks Andy, I am vigorous and healthy...it is way too early to retire and perhaps I could help. Id sure like to.

Please let me know how things go.
