The launch of the First Thursday campaign in Jeffreys Bay on Thursday, 7 September 2023 – bringing open, accessible, transparent, and accountable government to all residents across the Kouga region – was a huge success.
Residents had the opportunity to engage with the Mayor and his team one-on-one on this specific day.
“It is my aim to make government more open and accessible to residents,” said Bornman.
“First Thursday affords residents direct contact for dialogue and problem-solving on service delivery-related matters. No matter how big or small – from town planning to account queries, as well as how to register for equitable shares.”
Close to 100 residents attended on the day.
The campaign will now be rolled out to Humansdorp, St Francis Bay and Gamtoos Valley.
