Fmr Legislator Shereen D. Flax Charles says D9 Action Group is ‘not anti-Gov't’

Despite leaving the Virgin Islands Party (VIP) as an At-Large Representative weeks before the 2023 General Elections, Former Legislator Shereen D. Flax-Charles who is now leading the charge of the District Nine Action Group has stated that the group is not anti-government.

She was at the time speaking at the Group’s Town Hall Meeting and Membership Drive held at the Catholic Community Centre on May 3, 2023. The meeting was conducted to chart the way forward with the process of membership and ventilating various ideas and focus for the Ninth District.

Group Not anti-Gov't - Flax-Charles

“I want to make it clear that this is not an anti-government group, this is not an anti-representative group. We have five representatives and I believe that we have to hold them accountable because you know who you’ve seen in the last four years," she added.

"Seh added, we have to stop talking and do, and it is not when we get up and we do it is against the Government, because all of us have to live here,” Flax- Charles told members of the group.

Ms Flax-Charles went on to highlight a number of challenges that are being experienced in the District as it relates to water, sewer, and transport as she stressed that the community cannot wait on the Government, but need to ‘take the bull by the horn.’

“And tonight, we can’t stay here very long you know, because tonight the water going off 9 o’clock. I mean, this is the reality of the day, and tomorrow again we’re going to have the same problem…and I feel bad for the guys at Water and Sewage, Public Works, etcetera who, as Sharon said has nothing to work with,” Flax- Charles continued.

Too much 'red tape' in Gov't - Flax-Charles

She said the group now needs to decide on how it will move forward as she noted that she found favor with it being a Non- Governmental Organisation (NGO), “Some people will say, well you were in Government and trust me, the frustration is real. Too much ‘red tape’,” she said.

Flax-Charles left the VIP weeks before the general election, claiming that she was in a “bad marriage” with the party and that she was more comfortable with the Progressive Virgin Islands Movement (PVIM), which allowed her to run in District Nine, against her longtime friend and colleague the Honourable Natalio D. Wheatley.

The people in District Nine have since let their voices be heard at the polls, leading to Flax-Charles coming in third in the four-person election race in the District. Ms Flax- Charles’ sister Sharon P. Flax- Brutus is also affiliated with the Action Group.
