GOP responds to State of the Territory address

Responding to the State of the Territory address by Gov. Kenneth Mapp, Republican Party of the United States Virgin Islands Chairman John Canegata issued the following statement:

“For too long the only answer has been to raise taxes and increase spending. Robbing Peter to pay Paul will not solve the territory’s profound fiscal woes. Government House and the Legislature need to focus on bringing more jobs and better pay checks by fostering innovation, entrepreneurship and job creation in the private sector.”
