‘It’s not an easy road’- Gov Bryan Jr

Governor Bryan, after his swearing-in, told the people there that in the epic words of Buju Banton, “it’s not an easy road”.

He thanked his Lt Governor Tregenza A. Roach, who he described as the best Lieutenant Governor in the world’.

Among other things, Governor Bryan said the COVID-19 times were especially very challenging times for everyone and may have caused him to grow more grey hairs.

He said his government was, nevertheless, proud of its many accomplishments, including being able to stabilise the territory’s finances and put more money in the pockets of the people.

Governor Bryan also said victory should never be, and for him will never be, about winning elections but about uplifting the people.

Meanwhile, Premier Wheatley said his government has a great appreciation for the Bryan-Roach Administration, especially since his government has been able to develop a very close bond with it.

The 35th Legislature of the US Virgin Islands (USVI) will be sworn in next week Monday, January 9, 2022, at Emancipation Gardens.
