A School, Not Condos and a Marina

Dear Source:
Why would a church support the closing of a community school on their land in preparation for the development of condos and a marina? Would this happen if the beloved Mr. Guy Benjamin were still alive? Wouldn’t it be Christian-like if the church developed an island-wide K-12 school on that land instead of lining the pockets of a few real estate developers? The gift of education would reap rewards for generations of young Virgin Islanders, instead of making quick money for a few developers. Signed, Your Conscience

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
