Virgin Islanders react to Trump’s Transfer Day Statement

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(March 31, 2017) — President Donald J. Trump has shown an
unprecedented commitment to the Virgin Islands as the U.S. territory
celebrates 100 years under the American flag.

Trump issued a powerful statement, saying in part: “We thank God for
the U.S. Virgin Islands, for its wonderful people, and for making the
U.S. Virgin Islands part of the United States of America.”

The statement came on the same day that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke
was on St. Croix for the Transfer Day commemoration.

“The fact that Secretary Zinke chose St. Croix and the Virgin Islands as the first territory to visit speaks volumes about the administration’s commitment to ensuring a better, brighter future for all Americans, including Virgin Islanders,” said Virgin Islands GOP National Committeeman Jevon Williams. “No president and no secretary of Interior have been there for Virgin Islanders like President Trump
and Secretary Zinke.”

VIGOP Statement on New Interior Secretary

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(December 13, 2016) — Republican leaders from the U.S. Virgin Islands, 
one of five territories under the jurisdiction of the Department of Interior, fully support the selection of Congressman Ryan Zinke as secretary of Interior.

“Congressman Zinke would be an excellent choice,” said Jevon O.A. Williams, the Republican Party of the United States Virgin Islands national committeeman.

“Being from Montana – a state with a large amount of federal lands, he understands the influence the Interior Department yields over the Virgin Islands and the other four U.S. territories.”

 

Published reports late Tuesday indicate Zinke, R-Montana, is Trump’s secretary of the Interior-designee, pending Senate confirmation.

The VIGOP has supported Zinke in his campaigns for Congress.
Zinke was in the Virgin Islands last month, when he spoke at a conference the party hosted on St. Thomas.

GOP Statement on Plaskett Editorial

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Christiansted (November 30, 2016)—The Republican Party of the United States Virgin 
Islands issued the following statement by and through Republican
National Committeeman Jevon O.A. Williams:

“Congresswoman Plaskett and her taxpayer-funded congressional office are suppose to represent all Virgin Islanders with honor and dignity in a non-partisan manner,” said Williams of St. Croix.

“Not only is her recent statement denouncing the president-elect of the United States a continuation of her well-documented pattern of misusing official, taxpayer-funded congressional office resources for partisan political purposes, but she has hurt our communities as the Virgin Islands is heavily dependent on the federal government, which as we all know is now controlled by the party Congresswoman Plaskett inappropriately attacked.”

Williams responds to Attorney General Claude Walker’s directive to issue new ballots for the general election

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CHRISTIANSTED (October 21, 2016)—Jevon O.A. Williams, candidate for the St. Croix District Board of Elections and National Committeeman of the Republican Party of the United States Virgin Islands issued the following statement in response to Attorney General Claude Walker’s directive that the Democrat-controlled Joint Board of Elections issue new ballots for the general election:

“The Democrat-controlled Joint Board of Elections has once again proven that it is unable to conduct free, fair and honest elections. The attorney general’s directive is deeply troubling, as it highlights that members of the Democrat-controlled Joint Board of Elections have risked the disenfranchisement of the men and women from our community who wear the uniform of the United States and are currently serving in Afghanistan".

The Virgin Islands Consortium covered this extensively and a link to the article can be found below.
