GOP statement on Plaskett’s $100 million claim

Virgin Islands GOP National Committeeman Jevon Williams responded to Congresswoman Stacey Plaskett’s claim that the federal government has shortchanged the territorial government in excess of $100 million.

On behalf of the Republican Party of the United States Virgin Islands, Williams released the following statement: “Congresswoman Plaskett conveniently ignores the fact that it was her political party that ran the Treasury Department for the past eight years. Why didn’t Congresswoman Plaskett speak out sooner if she believes the Virgin Islands has been shortchanged? Waiting until the new president took over to blame the new administration is yet another example of petty partisanship on the part of Congresswoman Plaskett, who has shown she is more interested in playing petty, partisan political games than delivering results for our island communities.”
