So is the govt going to announce something on Monday since they are meeting with the senators on Sunday? They can't sit on this now this story has been broken by the media.

Sure. He seems to be relaying privileged information. It is not his place to make any kind of announcement prior to the meeting tomorrow.

Actually, he (Nelson) hasn't told us anything. In fact, he is just guessing.
No names, times, dates, amounts. Not one piece of verifiable information.

He knows nothing and is just trying to bolster his re-election campaign.

As Jane has said, I'll believe it when the sign over the gate changes.

Well, somewhere online they said governor was going to announce something tomorrow, Sunday, September 14, 2014.

There are no secrets in the VI. Somebody knows.We should find out soon if Nelson is correct.

Exactly. There have already been numerous rumors that HOVENSA workers that took jobs stateside are being recruited to return home. Were there is smoke there is fire. I wish I wasn't on mat leave other wise I would be able to verify those rumors.

Name one or two that were asked to come back and work.

So far no one has been able to come up with one name for me to follow up.

Why spread rumors that you know are false?

There are dozens of rumors over the last few months, not one has proven to be true.

Come on. I am not spreading anything. You seriously have never heard that rumor?

It looks to me like they did some work building a water filter or something for the refinery back in 2004.

This seems to be the case after reading that article; he contradicted himself several times and basically it sounds like he's just guessing and talking a lot.

I was not aware that Veolia has ever built a refinery. Can you provide a link to support that?
