'MIGHTY FONCIE' TRYS ELECTION REFORM CALYPSO STYLE

Telling all about a "Political Prossertoot," Sen. Adlah "Foncie" Donastorg's debut CD album, "Foncie 2000," is hot off the press, released this week.
Donastorg may be more well known in the Senate, but he has a strong calypso following as "The Mighty Foncie." The album features 10 new songs, along with two from carnival last year when he was one of the top 10 calypsonian finalists.
The songs are fun, of course, but they contain serious messages about youth and community problems. Donastorg said that calypso is one of the best ways to involve the community. The calypso form has long been known as one of the most direct ways into the heart and mind, (and funnybone).
"I can express my concerns through music," Donastorg said. "It has become a hobby for me – I'm very excited about this CD." Proceeds from the sale of the CD will go toward recreational equipment for St. Thomas and St. John senior citizens, as well as to the senator's campaign committee.
Donastorg noted that May is Senior Citizen month, and said he wanted to do "something special" for the territory's older folks.
As far as the campaign contributions, "This is my own style of campaign finance reform," he said. He emphasized his belief that all elected officials should find more creative fund-raising efforts. (And not be a "Political Prossertoot"?)
"Foncie 2000 is available at music outlets throughout the territory.
