Demand answers. Question authority. Agitate for change. Go ahead, you're entitled.
We're asking Source readers to submit their concerns, complaints or questions about anything that affects their day-to-day life, freedom, or pursuit of happiness in the territory.
From questions about government agencies and public officials (or employees) to charities, private businesses, systemic problems or bottlenecks—nothing's off limits. Maybe you even have an issue with the Source ... go ahead, ask away.
We want your input, but with one caveat: do it without rancor or personal attacks. The Answer Desk isn't a forum for gossip, self-interested complaints or personal vendettas.
The Source is looking to pursue answers for our readers about issues, laws, statutes and agreements that affect all of us. We want intelligent questions about local laws, the V.I. code, agreements the government has with various unions or the status of unresolved issues, just to name a few. Let your civic pride—and your curiosity—be your guide.
Our reporters and editors will go after the answers on behalf of our readers by calling public officials, union officers, lawyers, business owners, agency executives and anyone else with the answers we all seek.
We expect replies! And if we don’t get answers, we'll let you know who (or what) stood in our way.
To submit your question or concern, go to the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of every page on the Source. In the Category drop-down menu, choose V.I. Answer Desk and send us your call for change or information!
