Georgetown’s longest serving mayor and former Prime Minister, Hamilton Greene will get a bust all of his own among the nine Presidents of Guyana. These ten busts will be unveiled during the upcoming 50th Independence Anniversary scheduled for May 2016.

The nine presidents so far have been Arthur Chung, Forbes Burnham, Desmond Hoyte, Cheddie Jagan, Sam Hinds, Janet Jagan, Bharrat Jagdeo, Donald Ramotar and now David Granger.

At time of writing no place has been identified for the mounting of the completed bust but the Burrowes School of Art has been awarded the contract to complete the Jubilee Celebration Project. 

Hamilton Greene has been a lifelong member of the PNC and has had several cabinet appointments including Health Minister, Senior Vice President and Prime Minister.

Hamilton Green has been mayor of Georgetown for more than two decades and has been described by many as pugnacious for standing up to both President Jagdeo and Ramotar. Both of these presidents offered him destructive functional non-cooperation in running the City of Georgetown.   And now that they are both out of office, Hamilton Green is having the last laugh and the conscionable reward of a Bust for standing his ground in the Garden City.
