Reapportionment

your senators in
support of this
cause.
St. Croix
340-773-2424
St. Thomas
340-774-0880

The waste from this bird
falls mid-island St.
Lets make a change!

In 1966 the Unity Party,
led by Earle B Ottley, formed the
present governmental structure,
changing what it was in the
revised Organic Act of 1954.
Leaving St.Croix as a permanent
minority and leaving St. John with
only a senator at large. St Thomas
senators make decisions that
affect the people of StCroix even
though we cannot vote for them. I
was approached by two members
of the community over the age of
77 to 78 and informed of how the
system worked before 1966. The
United States of America, in the
revised Organic Act of 1954 was a
more just system that represented
a true republic.
In a republic, citizens elect
representatives to do their will but
in our system we are represented
by people who we do not elect. A
perfect example of this is the
Diageo deal. Five of the seven
senators from St.Croix voted nay
and we still got Diageo. I have
included a condensed version of
the revised Organic Act as given to
me by an elder. I am asking for
you to put it into a voting format
and have it presented before the
legislature to be voted upon as yay
or nay. Thank you for your
attention.
