VALLEY, Virgin Gorda, VI – Sixth District Representative Hon Alvera Maduro-Caines said she received the ‘celebrity treatment’ on her latest visit to Virgin Gorda last Saturday, October 6, 2019.

Reporting via a post on the social network website, Facebook, Hon Maduro-Caines said, “I visited our sister island VG… for a few hours and felt like a celebrity. The surprise look on some people faces was priceless. The hugs and kisses and picture taking, made my day.”

“The people of VG are always so friendly and welcoming. Thanks to Pastor Ricketts [Paul A. Ricketts] for taking some time to escort me around,” she said.

D6 a dumping area - Hon Maduro-Caines

Many are wondering if Ms Maduro-Caines’ current celebrity status on VG could spell a shift in representation at the next Virgin Islands polls.

At the September 2, 2019, continuation of the Sixth Sitting of the First Session of the Fourth House of Assembly in the Virgin Islands, Hon Maduro-Caines famously told the House that her District was starting to look like a dump.

“We in District 6 have been plagued by the parking of equipment and boat trailers and boats all over the district… It’s time that they stop making the 6th District look like a dumping area,” she told the House.

Ms Maduro-Caines has been the representative for the area since 2011 after winning the seat from its previous representative, the late Omar W. Hodge of the Virgin Islands Party (VIP).

    Really shaking my head. She should be working on cleaning up the dump before it gets out of control in terms of environmental and health hazard. If she knew she wasn't going to do anything for the 6th, why did she Run? What happened to all her so called ideas and Plans for the 6th? Fooling the People for an easy Salary. Hope she enjoys it while it last.

    Is she an engineer or a garbage collector. Some of you are so silly. If you all are not on facebook how would you know that she is on there? Some of you are the main topic many times. Many elected representatives are on social media regularly, if they were not you all would say they need to get with the times. How to please you. Stop trying to pull people down and post only if you have something worthwhile to share. The rest of the world is reading, try your best to appear sensible.

    You can put yourself on a ticket next election and see who would vote for you. You get an easier salary because all you do in blog all day. D6Rep has put in two plus terms and is entitled to a pension, what are you entitled to after blogging crap all this time. It is funny how persons do not see her in the district but they see her when their rent is past due, credit card payments are late, day care fees are past due and all the other reasons they beg.

    Oh my all you leave my sister alone I will help her if you won't. All work and no play makes Jill a dull Girl. People have a private life to dont forget its not easy to lead people. She is your servant and servant hood is not easy try it and you will see. Stop bashing the lady. In fact if you go to VG I promise you that the same treatment she got you would get it to. The people of Vg knows what is hospital. Put the entire B.V.I to the test and see which island comes first. Just try it. Love this servant put down the negativity and lift her up before the Great God of the universe. Peace and love
