Up from the $9M Budget Request in 2015, per the daily news.

Crazy. Hope reason trumps here and that request is not approved.

He needs the money to hire 1000 people.

I just came across this on the Daily News website.

This states his rental amount for the Nazareth Villa he's been renting is actually $14,500 per month, not including utilities, not the touted $12,500 amount.

"The lease noted that the V.I. government was responsible for all expenses incurred in the use of the leased premises, including but not limited to security and service bills; water; electricity; telephone; cooking gas; generator repairs and all other utilities."

Pretty Damned Sneaky, if you ask me, in not declaring the actual amount! I am totally disgusted at this point.

Plus that whole deal with WICO paying the rental amount in lieu of back taxes means those funds are not going back into the VI coffers but being used for the personal benefit of a single individual.

Is that even legal?
Another good reason for an Independent attorney general.
