‘Alvera has whopped past D6 male candidates & 2023 will be no different’- Skelton-Cline

BAUGHERS BAY, Tortola, VI- After being rejected by the electorate in 2019 as an At Large candidate but is now seeking to re-enter political office as a District candidate, the controversial former legislator Myron V. Walwyn has been aggressively campaigning in the Sixth District and lambasting the current Representative Hon Alvera Maduro-Caines at every turn; however, clergyman and talk show host, Claude O. Skelton-Cline believes Hon Maduro-Caines will prevail at the polls.

Hon Maduro-Caines has in the past defeated all male opponents and is expected to do the same this election, according to Skelton-Cline.

Calling on the people of the district to re-elect Hon Maduro-Caines, Mr Skelton-Cline added on the April 18, 2023, edition of his show Honestly Speaking said, “Myron is an excellent campaigner, and he has his own charisma, but Alvera is the person with the passion and the compassion and the capabilities,” he said. 

Walwyn accused of petty campaigning 

On the campaign trail, National Democratic Party (NDP) D6 candidate, Mr Walwyn has been using old recordings of Hon Maduro-Caines as part of his campaign tactics to win over the people of the district.

Hon Maduro-Caines, known to be one of the most humble and caring legislators in the VI, has tried to focus her campaign on what she was able to achieve for her district, especially through one of the most challenging four years in the Virgin Islands as well as the world, and her plans if re-elected.

Skelton-Cline has warned the people of the district, “Don’t let nobody talk down to your representative, don’t let anybody deflate what you know that mother, that woman, that daughter, that aunt has done for you in that community, how her doors have always been open.”

Mr Walwyn, who has been charged with Breach of Trust by a Public Official and the matter is still before the courts, has also been releasing social media videos and advertising on challenges in the Sixth District and pinning them on Hon Maduro-Caines as the sole person responsible for the district’s woes.

Mr Skelton-Cline added that one of the main reasons certain issues have not been addressed in the Sixth District is because those issues have been marginalised and placed on the back burner under previous governments.

Further, Mr Skelton-Cline added that for those not wanting to vote for Mr Walwyn or the Virgin Islands Party (VIP), they have to remember that Hon Maduro-Caines is new to the VIP and will still be a representative in the Sixth District.

Maduro-Caines campaigning under VIP for first time  

He added that Hon Maduro-Caines, the Junior Minister for Tourism, will be a part of the Government and is deserving of votes from the people of the district.

Hon Maduro-Caines is running in the district as a VIP candidate for the first time after leaving the National Democratic Party (NDP) in January 2020, to join the then-ruling VIP, saying then she had crossed the floor for the sake of getting things done for her beloved district that elected for her 3-consecutive terms.

During her campaign launch speech on March 26, 2023, Hon Maduro-Caines noted that it was while she was on the opposition side of the NDP that her eyes were finally opened and she realised that under the NDP, there was a lack of political will that stunted the growth of the Sixth District.

Meanwhile, Advance Polling Day is today, Thursday, April 20, 2023, and Polling Day is Monday, April 24, 2023.

    Myron all the way. What have she done for the sixth since she was selected? Then switch to VIP this clearly shows she's hanging where the soup is dropping. All she does is collect a pay check and resurface every four years. Let's make a change Myron ALL THE WAY.

    Myron and Alvera has been in the same team in the same house for the same 8 years, what has been done? Myron had more power than Alvera as an at-large and minister, what has he done for the 6th?

    If Alvera was the problem let him show you what he prosped and show where Alvera stopped it....Myron helped Alvera do the nothing he's now using against her....sheesh tough decision for z6ne.

      It's so important to watch the players surrounding these candidates and ask yourself what's in it for them and what are they really looking for from Walwyn. I am puzzled by Mr. Walwyns aspiration to re-enter politics after his constituents talked bout him like 2 dutty old shoes pertaining to a wall. Mr. Walwyn is already collecting a pension, he has successful businesses throughout the island...that should be keeping him busy; I ask myself then why, why does he want to put all of that on hold to re-enter politics? Is he hard up for the people dem money? Does he have more contracts to fulfill? Is his business in trouble and he is in need of additional monies? He chose to run for a district seat outside of his residential district because like he told his people "Alvera is the weakest link", all I keep on asking is why, why, and why. Something ain't quotia about this whole thing and the residents of Zone 6 need to look beyond the promises of both candidates and sift them out well.

    Pure political rhetoric (nonsense if you ask me). This man CSC is no prophet and we all know that. He just speculating and forming his own analysis based on the results of the last election. He is not God who is in control of everything and as far as I’m concerned, it’s already predestined. We all have to wait until Monday night when the count is done. By the way I don’t have anything personal against the two candidates. I actually love both of them but as we know only one can win.
