Former D2 Rep J. Alvin Christopher endorses Troy E. Christopher

Former Second District Representative Mr J. Alvin Christopher has endorsed Independent Second District Candidate Mr Troy E. Christopher for the upcoming general elections.

Speaking at Mr Christopher’s official campaign launch at Myett’s Restaurant in Cane Garden Bay on April 1, 2023, the former legislator Christopher said he is offering someone who has the ability, patience and the know-how to move the District forward; as he contended that the job is not for the faint-hearted but people who are humble, dedicated and focused on their country’s development.

The current Representative is Progressive Virgin Islands Movement (PVIM) candidate Hon Melvin M. Turnbull, who has already served two terms.

Mr Troy E. Christopher has been hailed by former legislator J. Alvin Christopher as best suited to lead the Second District in these 'dark days'.



'I have no problem passing on what I learned' to Troy- J. Alvin Christopher

Mr Christopher, who was the Second District Representative from 1995 until the 2015 general election, recalled 30 years ago when he had his first campaign rally, which he noted took him on a 20-year-plus journey.

“I see Troy is following in my footstep. I’m going to try to see if I can reduce my steps so that he can catch up with me, because I have no problem in passing on what I learned…gained over the years,” he said.

He opined that while some progress was made, 8 years ago when he stepped away from the political scene everything that was gained over that period is now gone, but noted that Troy has a plan and a programme to revitalise the community.

“And it seem like all the cry and all the progress that we have made has returned, and the cry are even louder now than then. So, I come this evening to bring to you…no other than Troy Christopher.

“I am asking you, the people of this Second District, as you have given me your support…to please, please give Troy your support on April 24th. When you go to the polls vote Troy …I want you to understand something, there are three nice young people who have offered themself for this District…but the truth in fact is the BVI at this present time is in trouble…,” the former legislator said, suggesting that Troy E. Christopher may be the most suitable to lead.
The current Second District Representative is Progressive Virgin Islands Movement (PVIM) candidate Hon Melvin M. Turnbull, who has already served two terms.



'Dark days are here'

“Now for those of you who know me and have been around me you know I’ve been saying this for a while that we have some dark days ahead, those dark days are here now. Where we are as a country and as a nation is in doubt and believe you me you must have a person who is fit for this job,” he added.

According to Mr J. Alvin Christopher, the community needs someone who is not concerned about what others may say or think about them, but someone who is serious about making a difference.

“It’s not about who I like or who is my friend or my family, it’s about making serious decisions and the decision that is before this country right now I can tell you is gonna get worst if we go forward with the same mentality- worrying about what somebody says about you or what somebody didn’t say about you. You gotta grow up…,” he said.

Pointing to the cries of residents in Cane Garden Bay whom he noted have highlighted issues such as dysfunctional community centres, Mr Christopher urged people to use wisdom, knowledge and understanding while voting as this is a “very crucial” election.

The Virgin Islands Party (VIP) candidate in the Second District is Marieta C. Flax-Headley.
