Trusting the Administration to Do the Right Thing

Dear Source:

I, too, am very, very disappointed that our Governor did not address all of the specifics that George Hollander has pointed out. Will St. John get any fairness in regards to property taxes? Our Lt. Governor Gregory Francis-saw and heard the depth of the real concerns raised by the multiple of citizens who attended that Town meeting.
Please…St. John needs a voice…on many issues. Without fair property taxation for those native as well as long-time, residents who built their homes piece by piece on St. John—we will simply be "selling out to the rich". Why would our Government possibly not see this? I trust that we do have an Administration for the people…those who have been here many many years, love this Island and make it their home. I will remain optimistic and hope that more specifics will come that right this wrong.
