Feb. 1, 2007 – Carmen Wesselhoft, Virgin Islands Senator-at-Large, brought some of her concerns to the attention of Governor John de Jongh during a working lunch on Monday.
Senator Wesselhoft, Chairwoman of the Committee on Public Safety, Homeland Security and Justice, told de Jongh she was very eager for the appointment of a Police Commissioner as a great deal of work needed to be completed in regard to Public Safety.
“I was pleased to learn that we can expect an announcement by the end of the week,” Senator Wesselhoft said.
The Senator-at-Large said she had a long list of issues to discuss with the new Governor, but felt it essential to point out two of her most pressing concerns on the island of St. John.
“There is a serious teacher shortage at Guy Benjamin School,” she said. “We have the principal teaching three classes – this must be addressed immediately.”
Other issues discussed include development taking place on Government land on St. John related to leases that have not yet been granted.
“Several constituents have complained about this and I pointed this out to the Governor and asked that he request DPNR to look into this as soon as is possible,” Senator Wesselhoft said.
