Maybe contact Senator Nelson's office.

The tourist shop at the end of Stand St. on the corner of King Cross St. I think the name is Nano sells them. They are the campaign bumper sticker for Senator Terrance Positive Nelson of STX.

Oh, I didn't know they were associated with a senatorial campaign? I thought I saw them long before Nelson ran.

Yes, it was his campaign sticker. He removed the St Croix part on the sticker and simply changed it to Virgin Islands. He also has those rubber bracelets like Lance Armstrong as well. I know he walks around with those, not sure about the stickers. As suggested, call his office. He is a nice guy when I have talked with him.

"...a nice reminder of the VI."

Are you going somewhere for a duration that requires a reminder of the VI?

Onika,

"I think they are nice generally and a nice Reminder of the VI"

You going anywhere?

There was a young guy who drove a black two door car (I think it was black) that had the custom writing at the top of his windshield that said, "Negative is how I live." I thought it was funny to be rebellious against another island's slogan, but does St. Thomas have it's own slogan?

I don't know if this is funny or sad, but for a long time I thought that the "positive is how I live" was some type of statement about the person's HIV status. Like "Yes, I'm HIV positive, but I'm alive and dealing with it". I actually thought it was some type of public awareness campaign since HIV rates are fairly high in the Caribbean. I thought it was to help people get over their fear of being tested.

Really, that's what I thought it meant for quite a while.

jfqueen-- I'm glad to know I'm not the only person who was confused about those stickers! If there are two of us who thought it was about HIV, there's bound to be even more who thought that...

Thanks for the tips all! It looks like I will have to get it from Sen Nelson b/c the ones at cafepress don't say "U.S. Virgin Islands".

FYI, for those inquiring minds 😉 ...it is for a gift.

Not to be a downer - and I DO think Sen. Nelson needs to re-think his sticker - unfortunately, HIV positive is how a LOT of the population lives in the islands. From some discussion with members of VI Care, apparently the incidence is quite alarming, particularly among the 30-50 year old male group. Perhaps it isn't a bad thing - it raises awareness, which is what we ALL should be about - still, mainlanders, don't shun someone with a bumper sticker - it doesn't mean what you think!
