New President of police union St. Maarten NAPB aims for positive change

PHILIPSBURG--Recently-elected NAPB police union President Rogerrel Eugenio Mauricia is hoping to make positive changes for members of the union during his tenure.

Mauricia will be sworn in along with other members of the new NAPB board and Congress this Thursday. He will be taking over the baton from Jeanine Peterson, who served as the first woman president of NAPB for three years.

Mauricia plans to be transparent and run the board with integrity. His main plans are to work on internal damage control, to attract back members who had left the union in the past “once we can convince them that we need them,” and to motivate members of the NAPB.

He also plans to visit the various departments the union represents and form a workgroup in each department. Planning social events for members, having a good working relationship with the union’s partners, organising courses for members and having workshops and lectures are also amongst his plans.

“I am very proud and humble for the result of the election,” Mauricia told The Daily Herald on Monday. “I did not just win just an election. I know they (the members who voted) did not do it for me. The members voted because they understand the enormous task that lies ahead and are seeing me as the leader that can [find solutions – Ed.] for most of their issues.”

Also elected to the board were Richel Doran, Marcus Pantophlet, Belinda Bryson, Janine Philips and Fabiola Brown. Elected to the union’s Congress are Jeanine Peterson, John Boyrard and Darion Every. Elections for the new board were held on Wednesday, June 27. Of the 151 members, who were eligible to vote, 60 went out to cast their ballots for representatives of their choice.
