Virgin Islands Residents Frustrated with Elected Officials' Focus on Self-Governance, Demand Action on Core Issues
Myron Walwyn, a member of the Virgin Islands (VI) House of Assembly, stated that residents have become disenchanted with talks from elected officials about self-governance and the Commission of Inquiry (COI) and its report.
Instead, they are focused on core issues affecting their survival.
Walwyn suggested that elected leaders should "read the tea leaves of the territory" to understand the concerns of the people.
He emphasized the need to address financial struggles and poverty, and called for the government to prioritize "bread and butter issues." Walwyn also mentioned that he has been advocating on behalf of his constituents, addressing issues such as road infrastructure, water and sewerage, and waste disposal.
