Ackley releases campaign platform for general election

Today, Republican nominee for Congress Gordon Ackley released his platform for the general election campaign.

Entitled “Contract with the Virgin Islands,” the four-point platform specifically lays out how the St. Thomas businessman and Air Force veteran will work with the congressional majority to deliver for the Virgin Islands.

“This isn’t a platform of promises,” said Ackley. “My platform is a contract that specifically sets out my side of the bargain with the electorate.”

Among the platform’s specifics, Ackley will:

  • Ensure equality for Virgin Islanders under the American flag.
  • Establish a Coast Guard station.
  • Appropriate federal funds for K-12 public schools on each island, including a high school on St. John.
  • Provide federal incentives to businesses that create career opportunities for the next generation of Virgin Islanders.
  • Establish a Veterans Affairs hospital, ensuring that veterans no longer travel off-island.
