VIGOP Statement on New Interior Secretary


(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.
