"Mostly speant or obligated? You mean politicians pockets lined with the money. When are we going to wake up and stop electing thieves?

The money was spent before the ink dried on the check.
No surprise. Now I wonder where the money will come from to pay all of Mapp's new hires.

Those lawyers sure made out like bandits.

Maybe when those who are eligible to vote register to vote and become involved in the electoral process?

And stop voting for those who throw the best parties and give out free stuff. Hoping our young voters can make a difference. Many of the young folks i work with are frustrated.

The only way to get the VI government working properly is to remove all those currently in power and replace them with stateside people. Harsh, I know, but it's the only way to circumvent the rampant corruption that has been going on for decades in the VI. Too many people in the VI know each other and/or are related to each other which creates a climate ripe for precisely the kind of corruption the islands have. Yes, I know there is also corruption in the states, but it simply pales in comparison. Sad, but true.

Cruzans do it better.

I would go even further.
Once he loses his presidential bid, offer VI to Donald and rename it Trump Islands or Trump Virgins. He would develop the territory, make pple work efficiently, deport Haitians, stop violent crimes and protect our borders. Perhaps we could even have a small war with BVI to stimulate local economy.

Jeez, gotta disagree on this one.
He'd probably be worse than Mapp.
There's a reason for his multiple bankruptcies.

I hope you didn't take me seriously.
Trump is by far only good for TV entertainment. With Kardashians!

Nugblazer is a off on his ideas but what we do need is not to be afraid if a "transplant" was to run for something, and stop recycling the same failures into other position. An for god sake do we really need so many senators?

"Transplants" have run for elected offices. Bruce Flamon on St Thomas ran for senate in the last election, and will probably run again. There are probably others.
