ST. GEORGE’S, Cayman Islands, Mar. 26, CMC – The contract for the Governor of the Cayman Islands has been extended for an additional six months.
Governor Helen Kilpatrick, whose four-year term was due to end in September, will now be staying on until March 2018.
She earlier received a one-year extension to her initial three-year contract.
“The extension was made at the request of the [U.K.] Foreign and Commonwealth Office for operational reasons,” according to a statement released last week.
The extension is to allow the next Cayman Islands governor time to settle affairs before coming to the islands – the name of the new appointee has not been disclosed
The six-month extension will make Kilpatrick Cayman’s longest-serving governor since Alan J. Scott, who served for five years between 1987 and 1992.
Kilpatrick officially began her tour as governor on September 6, 2013.
She is the Cayman Islands’ first female governor since the territory began appointing that position in 1971.
