It's About Time!

I hope Mr. Harris stays in jail for a long time. It is people like him that keep the V.I. government corrupt. Naturally, we all know the governor knew what he was doing when he signed the contract; it would be a bonus to put him in a cell next to Harris. I commend the Feds for exposing and putting a halt to the scam. Now, hopefully, they can put Chucky and her conspirators in jail where they belong.
To the people of the V.I., be careful whom you elect to serve you. With election time around the corner, there are going to be lots of "wolves in sheep clothing" with promises of change. Beware, Beware!! This case should open the eyes of the people. Time to stop voting for whom gives the best fish fry and start voting for whom is best qualified. Over half of the senators in office right now need not be re-elected because they are the reason why nothing beneficial is happening in St. Croix. They only vote on issues that benefit themselves and their pockets. If the Feds can intervene and prevail, then how much power can the people of the V.I. united have to fight government corruption? Lots!! We, the people, have more power than any senator, governor and lieutenant governor. It's time for us to take our destiny into our hands and make the puppets work for us. Demand that they do the will of the people.
