Statement on new Interior secretary

Republican leaders from the U.S. Virgin Islands, one of five territories under the jurisdiction of the Department of Interior, fully support the selection of Congressman Ryan Zinke as secretary of Interior.

“Congressman Zinke would be an excellent choice,” said Jevon Williams, the Republican Party of the United States Virgin Islands national committeeman. “Being from Montana – a state with a large amount of federal lands, he understands the influence the Interior Department yields over the Virgin Islands and the other four U.S. territories.”

Published reports late Tuesday indicate Zinke, R-Montana, is President-elect Donald Trump’s secretary of the Interior-designee, pending Senate confirmation.
