The most recent downgrade of the territorial bond rating is the latest and most serious example of incumbent Del. Stacey Plaskett’s failure to deliver for the Virgin Islands.
Plaskett, D-Frederiksted, has made legislation she introduced exempting the Virgin Islands from measures in the Puerto Rico relief bill a key plank in her bid for re-election.
“Congresswoman Plaskett is dangerously incompetent,” said Republican Party of the United States Virgin Islands Chairman John Canegata. “Just as Congresswoman Plaskett failed to get a stamp issued to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Transfer Day, she failed to protect our territory from the ramifications of Puerto Rico debt restructuring despite claiming she did.”
