Nov. 15, 2002 – Sen. Alicia "Chucky" Hansen, whose 16 years in the Legislature will come to an end in January because she opted to run for governor instead of seeking re-election on Nov. 5, is having a house-cleaning of sorts before she packs up her possessions and vacates her offices on St. Croix and St. Thomas.
In a release distributed Friday, she asked that "all those who sought her assistance" over the years come by and pick up their client file documents.
Some will need to do this, the release said, "in order to seek assistance from another source to resolve problems which may be still outstanding."
Others, it said, will want to do so because the information contained in their files is confidential.
"I with to sincerely thank all those who came to me for assistance of one sort or another during my 16 years of public service," Hansen said. "It has been a pleasure to serve you, and thanks a million for your faith in me. I am left with only fond memories."
Those wishing to pick up their files are asked to do so between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on any work day between Monday and Nov. 27.
The release said Hansen also wanted to remind constituents "that under the federal rules of civil procedure, it is required that any attorney who represents clients on her behalf notify the judge of the [changed] circumstances" — an apparent reference to her leaving office.
