We know that cruise ships are not coming to St. Croix any time soon. This administration just like the last, do not care about cruise ships coming to St. Croix. With WICO and the St. Thomas Port Authority arguing over where cruise ships will dock in St. Thomas, do you think St. Croix have any place in their talks? We've been told for years that cruise ships do not come to St. Croix due to our high crime rate. The last time I checked, St. Thomas' crime rate is much higher than St. Croix.
I know this administration think we are stupid, but they have something there. We keep putting them in office. We as the people of St. Croix keep doing this to ourselves, so we deserve exactly what we get.
Maybe one day we will wake up and the people of St. Croix will start thinking about St. Croix. Many of you vote for this administration, and proudly shouted it from the mountaintop. Hope you get what was promised to you. Me, I know it will be a cold day in hell before this administration cares about St. Croix.
I remember one of my friends from St. Thomas said in a joke that we were second class Virgin Islanders. Little did she know she was dead right. Since I've been back, I've seen this St. Thomas-St. Johns first, St. Croix second. Majority of the government agencies is head by someone from St. Thomas, and all decisions that come out of these agencies is St. Thomas first, St. Croix last.
