Feb. 23, 2005 – The Minority Caucus of the 26th Legislature of the Virgin Islands is presenting a series of town meetings in an effort to take information to the people and get input on public policies. The meetings will be held in St. John, St. Thomas and St. Croix.
The first town meeting will be held on Thursday, February 24 on the island of St. John at the Supreme Court Hall in Cruz Bay. Subsequent meetings will be held on St. Thomas on Tuesday, March 1 and on St. Croix on Wednesday March 2. The St. Thomas and St. Croix meetings will be held at the Education Curriculum Centers on each island. In addition, all three meetings will begin at 6 pm and end at 8:30 p.m.
"It is fitting that the Minority Caucus will hold the first of these town meetings on St. John," Senator-At-Large Craig Barshinger said. "The people of St. John will have the opportunity to interact with and ask questions of the Minority Senators. We will deal with issues that are important to St. John, particularly the crippling parking problem." Senator Barshinger went on to urge all St. Johnians to come out and participate in this first town meeting.
Keith Richards, special projects coordinator, Office of the Governor will be the guest speaker at Thursday’s meeting. Also in attendance will be the seven members of the Minority Caucus. This meeting is open to the public and all Virgin Islands residents are invited and encouraged to attend.
