Constitutional Convention Schedules Plenary Sessions for St. Croix

Feb. 13, 2009 – The Fifth Constitutional Convention of the Virgin Islands has scheduled plenary sessions for St. Croix from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 17 and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 18, at the St. Croix Drive-In Center in Grove Place. The general public is invited to attend the plenary sessions and all scheduled committee meetings.
President Gerard Luz James II said, "On behalf of the Constitutional Convention, I thank the people of the Virgin Islands for their support of the convention and reassure them that the process toward the completion of a final document is a unified one. As delegates to the 5th Constitutional Convention, we have encountered many obstacles and will continue to face them until we have a completed document. We expect delegates and members of the community to have a difference of opinion; however, the final draft would reflect one that we can all be proud of.
"Copies of approved language will be forthcoming for the public's review. I ask the community to be patient of the process and also understand that, as delegates to the 5th Constitutional Convention, we have to find innovative ways to get the language out to the public considering the limited amount of resources and funding we have for public relations efforts and educating the public. Within a one week, we will be aggressively getting what approved language we have distributed for the public's review and input."
