Rymer will turn Water & Sewerage around, Premier assures

Rymer will turn Water & Sewerage around, Premier assures

Premier Dr Natalio Wheatley has insisted that Works & Utilities Minister Kye Rymer is the right person to fix the troublesome Water & Sewerage Department.
Speaking in the House of Assembly (HOA) as legislators debated converting the entity into a statutory body recently, Dr Wheatley pointed to comments made by Third District Representative Julian Fraser about the need for finding someone who is the right fit for revamping the entity.

“This minister can look at a situation and he can come up with solutions, and he can deliver,” Premier Wheatley said of Rymer.

Dr Wheatley praised Rymer for being on the ground advocating for and working with staff of the Public Works Department on weekends, “working when normally, you can’t get them out there”.

He also praised Rymer for ‘turning around’ the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), while serving as the Head of that department under Fraser who was then Minister of Works in a previous Virgin Islands Party (VIP) administration.

“It’s no different with water. Now, he’s been able to analyse the situation to say, ‘these are the challenges holding us back’,” the Premier said.

The Premier further stated that Rymer has the character and vision to execute the job and also has built the relationships needed to accomplish his tasks.

Territorial At-Large Representative and former Health Minister Carvin Malone, who has since crossed the political aisle to become a member of the parliamentary Opposition, also added his voice in raising kudos to Rymer as a man who can “get things done”.

Malone praised Rymer for his work in moving forward with the revamp of the market square, as well as for the traffic ‘turnaround’ which several persons have credited for adding relief to the congested traffic situation in Road Town.
