The U.S. Virgin Islands Economic Development Authority (USVIEDA) has announced Governor Albert Bryan Jr.’s three new appointments to the USVIEDA Board of Directors: Labor Commissioner Designee Gary Molloy, Agriculture Commissioner Designee Positive Nelson and Deputy Chief of Staff of the Office of the Governor Kevin Rodriquez.

In accordance with the Virgin Islands Code, Gov. Bryan appointed the board members who will serve by virtue of their position and at the pleasure of the governor.

USVIEDA is a semi-autonomous government organization responsible for promoting economic growth, job creation and wealth generation in the U.S. Virgin Islands, America’s Business Paradise. Its four major divisions are the Economic Development Commission, Enterprise Zone Commission, Economic Development Park Corporation, and the Economic Development Bank.

  1. Do any of these people know anything about economic development? Their only known qualification is they work for the Government. Great! And Kevin Rodriquez??? How soon we forget/forgive. He’s now on the Governor’s staff so he’s eligible for anything cushy that comes up. And Positive pushed thru the mary jane legislation so he must know something about Agriculture so make him the commish. This is a great example of why the VI is so f**ked.
