Governor leaves Phuket – quietly

PHUKET CITY: About 70 people gathered in front of the Governor’s House on Narisorn Rd this morning to wish Udomsak Uswarangkura a fond farewell on his last day as Governor of Phuket.

Governor Udomsak, who today brought to a close some 38 years of government service, left his home at 8:45 am, bound for his native Bangkok.

Before departing, he received flowers and souvenirs from government officials, and offered them tea and coffee before saying, “Thank you, and good bye.”

About 400 government officials attended his official farewell ceremony at Phuket Provincial Hall on September 18.

Vice-Governor Worapot Ratthasima told the Gazette that he had yet to be informed of who will replace K. Udomsak as Governor.

“The Vice-Governors will continue as ‘acting-Governors’ until we hear from the new Cabinet,” he said.
