ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Political aspirant running in the next general election and hoping to secure a seat At Large with the Opposition Virgin Islands Party (VIP) ticket, Julian Willock has released a message over the weekend to both the VIP delegates and the public.

Mr. Willock a former Government Permanent Secretary warned voters that “our opponent, the National Democratic Party (NDP) will come back to you with the normal ‘slick Washington DC commercials’ to try to muffle the truth about their poor record, but we must be determined that this time around, no amount of speeches and spin nor polished rhetoric from them will work”.

One VI-Willock

The former Director of the Water and Sewerage Department noted “this time around you must look pass the showmanship from our opponents, and ask ‘Are you better off that you were 3 years ago?’ Ask how do we build a country for everyone, whether you born here or not, a place for all God’s people.”

In his six minutes message to VIP Delegates Mr. Willock who has brought many solutions to the table added “I have been a lifelong VIP supporter and have traced my registered membership back some 20 years with the grand old party.”

He also stated, “ To all other candidates in the VIP internal election who have the courage to serve their country, I commend you, and believe every one of you will make a more credible candidate than what we have now on the other side.”

Mr Willock said “Like many others, I had options and invitations to join other groups, but I strongly believe in the values of the VIP; putting people first, love of country and rejecting a class system.”

Mr. Solutions

Known to be one of the few political aspirants that has brought new ideas to the table, Mr. Willock who also served as an Assistant Secretary in the Ministry of Natural Resources and Labour reminded voters that  “I have brought to the table new ideas and solutions to make your life better. From my four bold new revenue initiatives, to the need for a national security advisor in our efforts to reduce crime, along with bringing people together, and respecting their views, taking politics out of the education system and paying more attention to the sister islands and the idea of a Town Council, beginning first with Virgin Gorda, among many other ideas."

He noted that he has embraced the Legislative agenda of his party Leader Hon Andrew A. Fahie (R1) to bring about “good governance, transparency and yes, accountability and trust of the political class.”

“We need to save this country from the financial crisis we are in, the confusion of leadership, alleged corruption and division, and from losing our dear beloved Virgin Islands further to the control of the United Kingdom because of mistrust of this current Administration”, Willock told the public.

According to the businessman, the VIP will  “win this election with policies that are progressive, that  lifts all our people, and not so much with speeches that sound good, but are good and sound.”
