TURNBULL MAKES BOARD NOMINATIONS

Gov. Charles Turnbull announced a host of nominations to various governmental boards Tuesday.
Zandra Messiah, director of administrative services for the V.I. National Guard, was nominated to the Public Employees Relations Board. If confirmed, Messiah will fill a vacant management position for a five-year term.
Turnbull submitted the name of Oliver David, acting director of gaming enforcement, for Senate confirmation. The position is within the Department of Justice. David is the first director of gaming enforcement, a two-year position. V.I. law then dictates that subsequent directors serve during the term of office of the governor.
The St. Croix Coastal Zone Management committee will see three new members – and the renomination of a fourth — who will serve two-year terms if confirmed by the Senate. Charles Farrell, a banker with the V.I. Community Bank, was renominated for another term.
St. Croix administrator Rupert Ross Jr. was nominated to replace John Beagles, whose term expired.
Retired V.I. National Guard officer Christian Christensen was nominated to replace Eric Schindler, whose term expired. Christensen is the husband of Delegate to Congress Donna Christian Christensen.
Asta O’Bryan James, a retired educator and former second vice president of the St. Croix Federation of Teachers, was nominated to fill a vacant spot on the St. Croix CZM committee.
