I am just so happy today! It was just reported that Lindquist Beach has been purchased by the government of the Virgin Islands. This has truly made my day and year. Thank you, Acting Attorney General Drew and her staff for leading the charge in this matter. Please let me also thank all previous attorney generals, the late Mr. Swan and Mr. Stridiron for their roles in this matter.
Now Vessup has a real chance of going in the same direction of acquisition by the V.I. government. If now we can put these beaches under a territorial park system, they truly will be sparkling gems for the territory. Please, Governor, send down the nominees to this important board. Money has been set aside for this action by the past legislature. To our lawmakers: now is the time to complete the job of passing a comprehensive land and water use plan and for the administration to implement it. To all beach goers: many people in the community fought long and hard for this to become a reality; please respect and take good care of our beautiful environment for all to share and enjoy.
