DE JONGH: EDUCATION KEY TO ECONOMIC WELL-BEING

As a person from the '60s I say right on to Mr. De Jongh, as I believe any sensible person should have in the last election. This man has a vision for this territory, one we all should embrace. What this territory needs is a businessman, for the government is a form of business: it's doing the people's business. I applaud all the remarks made by Mr. De Jongh and wish people would have listened more to his message and paid less attention to the rhetoric of a "lame duck" governor who had nothing to lose but his job.
