Well guys, if you are tired the of corruption and the cronyism that will destroy our territory Soriya Diase Coffelt is your only serious alternative.

"In a five-minute, prerecorded statement aired today on radio station 1620 AM The Reef in St. Croix, gubernatorial hopeful Soraya Diase Coffelt said she is “declaring war against corruption” and demanded the immediate unsealing of records in the criminal case involving former Virgin Islands senator, Alvin Williams, stating, “I ask the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the defendant himself to allow the unsealing of these records so that we the people know what has happened in this case.” "

The polls can be turned around overnight. Keep an open mind. Click on the link to find out more.

It's time to stop complaining and get behind this candidate.

Indeed a breathe of fresh air. There are a lot of people that are not going to like her stance so one can only hope and pray (and vote) that she can get elected in this climate of rampant and ongoing corruption. You can bet "Chucky's" supporters, especially, won't like her.

I went to her website. Very impressive.

http://www.diasecoffelt4governor.com/

I especially like this from her site:

PUBLIC SAFETY
Establish state of the art forensic units with skilled technicians. Promote continuing education for police officers to improve knowledge and job skills. Emphasize career education (above) which will reduce crime.

I know Soraya personally (have for 5 years) and support her 100%! She is intelligent, driven, supports better education and is a strong supporter of small business (I know this first hand as she has been a supporter of mine!) and will work tirelessly to insure fairness in our legal system. She is honest, hard working and most importantly, a good person...let's get behind her and spread the word the best we can in support of her being elected!

Deja vu again! For almost two decades I've been opining that a state of the art forensics laboratory would be a no-brainer for particularly St Croix. Stateside labs have been overloaded for years. New labs have been springing up all over the country and still can't quickly process the incoming material. It's a clean and highly profitable industry and would afford local graduates employment opportunities in a continually growing field.

The more I read the more impressed I am by this candidate. I only wish I lived there so I could donate my time to her campaign. Virgin Islanders clearly have an independent choice in the upcoming election. Soraya truly is an inspiration. If she does not win this time I hope she runs again as by that time I will have made my move and will make sure I help in anyway I can. I am definitely clicking the donate icon and sending some money to help her campaign. For all who complain on this board now is the time for action which always speaks louder than words.

When my wife was growing up on St. Thomas, Soriya was her neighbor. She has nothing but great things to say about her! Definitely two votes from our household for Soriya!

That might work if the police actually collected evidence...

They do and the process has improved since you lived her so many years ago. However, my main point in having a forensic lab here is as a for-profit venture, not solely for local use but also to process material from stateside.

Yeah tell that to these people:

Virgin Islands police to blame in NJ man's unsolved murder? (CBS News)

“It was also a burglary – the screen on the south side of the residence was broken, Jimmy’s iPhone was taken, his 46-inch T.V., and Jimmy had been killed,” Phoenix said.

Phoenix attributed the lack of an arrest in the case to the lack of a thorough investigation by the U.S. Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD).

“There was no forensic processing at the scene of the burglary, they never went to check on the other residents… they didn’t collect the bloody sheets as evidence,” Phoenix told Crimesider of the lead investigative agency on the case. “There’s a story to be told here about the lack of safety and ineptness of local law enforcement.”

Soriya had the moral compass and fortitude to start the chain of events in the Third Circuit that will result in the corruption clean up in the courts. Aaah! A breath of fresh air.

Here is the article in vi consortium.com where the corruption is starting to unravel:

Thank you, Judge Coffelt-Diase.
