image for Isle of Wight News - Council Leader Fond of Ribbon Cutting
Pugh enjoys ribbon cutting

We caught up with Isle of Wight Council Leader David Pugh at the ground breaking of the new Cowes secondary school where he spoke candidly about how much he enjoys ribbon cutting.

"It's a real pleasure to be part of any improvements here on the Isle. I certainly look forward to being here for the grand opening and photo opportunity upon completion of construction as well."

Pugh says that elevating the importance of ribbon cutting is something that he hopes to fight for in the future.

"While much has been said about the honest tradesman and architects and engineers that design fine building and structures we cannot forget to be inclusive in our appreciation for all parties that contribute to the success of a project."

"I do not intend by any means to diminish the great work done by the skilled tradesmen and engineers involved yet let us not underestimate the value of those who are tasked with the important ceremonial functions of announcing the opening of a fine edifice designed and constructed by the toil of others through ribbon cutting."

"Throughout history the ribbon cutter has been taken for granted, never complaining in their duty to ceremony despite public indifference and ruthless editing by newspapers and regional television stations."

"I believe it's time that ribbon cutters of the world, including me, are given the proper recognition they so richly deserve."

"Personally I find ribbon cutting and the photo opportunities they provide to be one of the most rewarding aspects of serving my constituents."
