ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Fourth District Representative and Member of the National Unity Government, Hon Mark H. Vanterpool (R4) has debunked claims made by talk show host, Rosemary R. Rosan-Jones aka 'Cindy' that he resigned from the House of Assembly (HoA).

Rosan-Jones in a Facebook post early this afternoon, June 14, 2022, had claimed the legislator resigned from his post which could pave the way for possible Bi-elections or early elections in the VI.

'False rumors' - Hon Vanterpool 

'I’m understanding the Hon Mark Vanterpool has tendered his resignation effective Friday 17th June. If this is indeed the case, I don’t know where that will leave us as a Territory," she said on Facebook. 

Hon Vanterpool fired back today, June 14, 2022, in a statement that called claims 'false rumors' while adding that he intends to serve a full term, although his current term in office will be the last as previously announced. 

"I am honored to continue to serve the constituents of the 4th district and the people of this territory as a senior member of the 4th House of Assembly and as a Statesman as I have been recently saying."

"I will also continue to advise the Unity Government as best as I can during the rest of this term. Let me repeat; I wish to reassure my constituents in the 4th district of my commitment to continue to serve in my best capacity for the duration of this term," the Legislator said. 

He also underscored that reforms for any growing country are necessary and that "growing pains are good pains".

Rosan-Jones slammed for spreading lies 

Meanwhile, Rosan-Jones has since been slammed across social media for her latest round of spreading lies and propaganda on Facebook, which would also extend to her 'Cut Deep' platform. 

It is our understanding that the talk show host and 2023 political candidate is also reportedly facing multiple legal battles over claims she made.  

Hon Vanterpool has served in local politics for over 20 years, including as Minister for Communication and Works with the National Democratic Party (NDP).

In May 2022, he crossed the floor as a Member of the Opposition to join the coalition government, which was set up in an effort to stave off the suspension of the local constitution and the imposition of direct rule by the United Kingdom (UK).

      What beef do you have with Vincentians? Cindy is not from St.Vincent!! You sound very bitter and jealous.. Tell that to the Governor you hateful human waste . It is this deep inner hate that has the BVI where it is today!!! Prefer to let injustice perpetuate and blame it on culture. At least the Vincentian Primer has better sense than succumbing to a set up!!! Look how the leaders and other in position turning on each other.

    You all believe Mark? He probably had intentions but changed his mind after it was leaked. This place is something else. You all like to call people crazy. I don't know why people worry with some of you. Cindy and others need to step back and leave sheeple alone.

    I understand why Cindy or anybody would think some of these politicians have resigned. They are all not doing a damn thing for their paychecks. And when I say nothing, I mean nothing. Visiting the House of Assembly every couple of weeks does not a Representative make. We have new Ministers for Labour and Health and Education. What the hell have they said and done since they got their new offices and salaries? Well, we are in deep doodoo. Politics in the BVI is for the birds. Nobody cares about us and the greedy who these useless politicians keep cutting cheques for will cut your throat. Well pardon me if I don't feel like you greedy folks. I simply want representation for my country. I want to see the infrastructure fixed. I want to see Education fixed. I want to see persons coming on vacation not be allowed to stay for 18 years. I want to see that big, beautiful hospital upgrade the doggone services. I want to see the smoke in Pockwood Pond stop. I want to see reforms for the Banking Industry. I want to see price control mechanisms put in place. I want to see somebody do something. I am sick and tired of seeing mothing. I want to see something.

    Mouth piece strikes again. Last month ,she had problem with the police over her phone . She talked a bunch of lies about the matter. Now ,it is about the 4 district rep. Who is so crazy to vote this laaaaaaady for office? Wishing the 2023 voters all the best . You imagine a loose canon like that in the house of assembly for 4 years.

      Answering for your friend. Hon. Vanterpool has resigned albeit mentally only because he continues to draw a paycheck. It is easier to beat up on Cindy who, you can tell your friend, in my opinion is getting a bad rap. Why? Because she speaks about what the greedy and corrupt in the BVI wants to be silent. While I don't agree with everything she says or does, demonizing her is definitely an agenda because she is daring and frank.

      Mark has not been seen or heard for three and a half years. He has done nothing for his District. He has done nothing for his money. He should be ashame to come on here spouting that he has not resigned when he has been MIA for years. Well label me Cindy No. 2 because if he is still a member of the House of Assembly, where the hell is he? Tell your friend Cindy didn't confuse me, nor other right-thinking citizens, not at all.

    Please leave Cindy alone , Cindy is the bravest and most influential woman in Tola right now. None of them smart and educated women in Tortola ain’t opening their mouth about the corruption because they benefit from the corruption. Cindy said she understands that Mark turned in his resignation,IF. Only IF so be the case ……… what’s wrong with that why you all cutting her head off.
    WhenCindy was opening her mouth a bit AF and many other issues you all called her crazy too and she turned out to be right on all aspects. Now the corruption stinks in our faces and is nothing we can do because it’s too late.
    Now UK take over direct and indirectly.
    Leave Cindy alone. I irme will come when you all will beg for Cindy to open her mouth. Hypocrites!!!

    Kudos to Cindy! I do not know her personally but I have great admiration for her, as should all who call the BVI home. We all sat down idly and watched ourselves being taken advantage of by elected 'leaders' for so many years and said and did absolutely nothing. At least she and the other young lady from the East have the guts to speak out against the injustices and ALL of us should applaud her/them and try to emulate her/them.

    Another thing, it is high time that we stop allowing those we elect to represent us to get on their high horses and bully us as if they are better than us, while digging our eyes out of our heads. This has been going on for too many years.

    As for the subject at hand, I live in the fourth. We have been without representation for so many years now that it ain’t funny. The rep needs to shape up or ship out. It is no longer business as usual. It is high time we get value for money.

    Please leave Cindy alone. She stated what she heard. But atlases she speaks out on things that could eventually be problematic so you would know what is coming on, true or false.
