      Perhaps now that the elections are over, people can put aside their pre-election differences, and salute both the new government, and the new opposition. I believe that Mitch is an honorable politician, otherwise I would not have voted for him. I really hope that there will be harmony in the HOA and that there will also be accountability.

    You have only thanked the 550 person's that voted for your, now this is where discourse is ahead. All Politicians need to understand that even for those who did not vote for you it is their RIGHT, their CIVIC DUTY. They all need to stop showing favoritism to those who vote for them and just do for all of the virgin islanders, why only certain person's were invited to your victory party.
