Flax-Charles vows to continue advocating for the people

Flax-Charles vows to continue advocating for the people

Although she was not elected to serve a second term in office, former At-Large Representative Shereen Flax-Charles has stated that she will continue to advocate for the people just as she did when she served as an elected representative.
Speaking on ZBVI’s Morning Show with host Paul Hewlett, Flax-Charles said she will be working in other areas now that she isn’t serving as an elected leader, but she admitted that advocacy and community building are embedded within her.

“I will continue to advocate and agitate for the people of the territory. Some persons were disappointed, some persons said I should move on and do other things. I will be doing other things but it is embedded in me that I have to be an advocate for our people and our community. So, that never goes away,” Flax-Charles explained. She added that the support she received after the election confirmed that people still need her to work on their behalf.

“I must say the people of Tortola embraced me. I came off the ferry and everybody was reaching out, people blew their horns as they passed by so I understand that the people still need me and I have to be there. I have no regrets at all because everything you do is a learning experience and you get wiser,” Flxx-Charles explained.

Before the election, Flax-Charles had resigned from the Virgin Islands Party (VIP) and joined the Progressive Virgin Islands Movement (PVIM). She ran for the seat of District 9 but lost to incumbent Vincent Wheatley.

While in office, Flax-Charles was known as an outspoken leader who often spoke passionately and even criticized decisions made by her own party.
