CANE GARDEN BAY, Tortola, VI – New Second District Representative Honourable Melvin ‘Mitch’ Turnbull will tonight September 24, 2015 hold his third community meeting since becoming District Representative, this time in Cane Garden Bay having held meetings in Meyers and Jost van Dyke earlier this week.

The meeting will take place at the Cane Garden Bay Community Centre at 7:00 PM and will be an opportunity not only for Turnbull to outline his plans for the district, but to listen to the concerns of the people as promised on his campaign trail.

“Today brings to a conclusion the third of three district meetings that we had within the first three months of being the District Representative. It is not just for Cane Garden Bay but Cane Garden Bay and surrounding areas. So those that missed the meeting in Meyers [on Monday] they can also come,” Hon Turnbull told Virgin Islands News Online in an exclusive interview.

“Tonight is basically to go over the plans that I have as priorities from where I see as the District Representative from information that we gained during the campaign trail and from me being a resident of the district together with addressing some of the immediate concerns as a tourist destination,” he said.

He noted that he is going to be listing his priority but pointed out that the list would not be set in stone.

“What we want to do is give the people the information but also give them an opportunity to share. They will be able to give me some of the concerns and issues that they might think as more pressing and then I come back again in three months or before.”

Turnbull insisted that he will continue to operate from the standpoint that it is a team effort with residents of the district.

“All of the things that we discussed Monday in Meyers and Tuesday in Jost van Dyke are things that not only want to but will accomplish in the first year of being District Representative,” he said.

          Jealousy?…if he won his seat like an honest person I could understand. He really should be a shame of himself but some people have no shame ‘like many of his supporters’. If Jesus came in their faces today and tell them that their deeds are wrong they would tell Him 'He jealousy'. Shameful People!

      why is it that one or more people keep taking others' name? I have seen it happen several times. Can't they speak for themselves? It confuses people when a different opinion is posted. Grow up and get your own ID!!!

        @ wize up: just a point of information: if you as a citzen or resident of the territory have knowledge of unlawfully activities you have the right to inform law enforcement; you do not have to wait on Mitch: that is the issue with modern day BVI, we have folks like you that simply sits back and talk !uck( there is a police station in cane garden cay inform them and let the police do their job)....less stupid talk more action; all of us have an important rule to play not just the elected few....

      I was here saying the same thing... The same "can't type/can't spell" person responding to every comment, and think people wouldn't notice. #HaterAlert What was it that Mitch did to you buddy ? Obviously MAJORITY of the 2nd district begs to differ in opinion! You're gonna have a tough 4 years lololol....

    Paging Archibald Christian, Marlon Penn, Delores Christopher, Alvera Maduro Caines, Hubert Oneal you got your constituents looking like fools for voting for you all. At least say something, anything at all or donate your pay checks to charity and stop leeching off of the ignorance of the people that voted for you.
