Bernadine A. Louis was Governor’s final nominee with wholehearted support!

Word reaching our news centre from senior sources within the coalition Government of Premier and Minister of Finance, Dr. the Honourable Natalio D. Wheatley (R7) is that indigenous Virgin Islander, Ms Bernadine A. Louis was the final of Governor John J. Rankin’s three nominees to the Constitutional Review Committee (CRC).

Mr Rankin, who now seems to be unpopular with residents of the Virgin Islands has been labeled a “racist and dictator” by talk show host and political activist Cindy Rosan, after he sparked outrage from all sections of the local population with his other two nominees, which he allegedly bullied his way to have them remain on the CRC according to the sources.

Who are these two?


The other two controversial nominees are Jamaican national Tanya Cassie-Parker and Caucasian American national Susan V. Demers, who both have belonger status.

Some residents claimed that Mrs Cassie-Parker wanted the Virgin Islands constitution to be suspended following the release of the Commissioner of Inquiry report, while others accused Ms Demers of being a ‘racist’ who does not have the best interest of the people of the Territory at heart, however, our news center, could not independently confirm those claims.

One nominee by Mr Rankin who was met with unanimous approval by both the Government of National Unity and Cabinet, was Ms Louis who is the daughter of former Legislator, Cyril Lewis Walters and his late wife – former Educator, Lucia Walters nee Potter.
