Ms. Boers has extensive experience in the field of political governance and has advised politicians and officials at both ends of the political spectrum. She describes herself as well aware of regulations, prides herself in providing great service and being results oriented. Her core strength is being an intermediary connecting different groups such as Island Council, Executive Council and the general public.
Her role here is create a structure more in line with the law and to increase communication with all people to let them know what is happening with the Island Council. She is especially sensitive to the fact that Sabans speak primarily English and will ensure that information is available in both languages.
As an author Ms. Boers has published books on the roles of Council Members, and civil servants based on her experiences working with various municipalities in the Netherlands.
Ms.Boers has held the role of griffier or interim griffier in several municipalities in the Netherlands. For her, the atmosphere it is especially enjoyable. She says her task is primarily a coaching role but is also prepared to assist in implementation as necessary. That the work is done is that is paramount to the new griffier.
