Good day! Have you thought about removing the SIN tax? That is hurting a lot of small businesses and the tourist that visit STJ have all complained to me about the rise in cost. It does trickle down and the residents here are feeling it. thank you
I completely agree!!!!
1. state of the art hospital
2. Government office building (all offices presently are rented all over the island0
3. Renew the Laraine shopping center (deplorable right now)
1. Yes, medical care is an essential public service.
2. I will have each department look into owning vs renting and review the results
3. I agree, however since it's private property it has to go through 'channels' which take time but can be done for sure.
My point of view,the virgin islands are is much more different,choosing candidates who because they are popular is not working,mosler can negotiate with important figures in Washington along with Mr.fonseca native background to allow local restaurants of the u.s.v. I.to have something to more cultural.
What is the virgin islands coming all the locals selling out shame on ahu.Letting these mainland maniacs coming and try taking over wake up island people
I would love your thoughts on this premise:
To believe that MMT has not been understood since the time of Keynes is naive at best.
The reality is, it was just not pragmatic to implement these ideas until such time that all the benefits of hegemony, and being a printer of the world's reserve currency, had come to an end. Until then, neoliberalism was the most pragmatic option to convince the citizens of the developed world to desire (Reagan and Thatcher's winning pitch to the people). Those responsible for manufacturing the needed consent fully understood this reality.
The last kick at the can for the developed world was going to be the China-driven globalization that began in the 80s. The U.S. has ridden this wave about as brilliantly as it possibly could have (the central bank, and the fiscal policies implemented, regardless of which party was in power, as hard as it is to believe, did an amazing job, for Americans, even though it may not feel like it right now). It was better to let the wealth become concentrated in American hands versus letting it leak out. Wealth in American hands can be taxed back easily enough. Wealth in the hands of non-Americans can only be taken back by providing goods and services in return. By limiting the leakage, the developed world prolonged the benefits that accrued to it for as long as humanly possible.
When globalization comes to an end (no longer a win-win for the U.S. and China), the policies you recommend are going to be the policies implemented by developed-world countries. Some are already more along the path than others. The relationship that existed between the developed world and China will now exist between China and the developing world (especially Africa).

My wife and I bought a place on the east end of St. Croix last year and would love to bring a start up business. Are there any plans to specifically attract new start-ups in the U.S. Virgin Islands?
The EDA will be reorganized to make sure that happens.
MY CONCERN IS AS ONE IS RUNNING FOR POSITIONS IN USVI THAT ONE IS STILL CONTINUED CONCERN ABOUT MAKING SURE THAT THE MAJOR INTERIOR SUCH AS THE 911 EMERGENCY SYSTEMS IS UP AND RUNNING 24/7 FOR THE PEOPLE. SAD THAT ONE HAS HAD TO LOSE LIFE FOR THE 911 SYSTEM HAD BROKE DOWN AND DEATH OCCURED.
STEP NOT JUST TO SHOW YOUR FACE WANTING TO RUN BUJT MAKING SURE AS A RESIDENT OF THE USVI ALL MAJOR AREAS ARE IN PLACE AND WORKING FOR ALL THE PEOPLE OF THE TRI-ISLANDS - ST. JOHN, ST. THOMAS AND ST. CROIX.
SOMEONE WHO GAVE MORE AND WAS CONTINUE TO GIVE TO THE USVI WAS UNABLE TO GET THE SERVICES TO WHICH HE PAYED HIS ANNUAL TAXES. MAKE SURE THAT 911 EMERGENCY SYSTEM FOR ALL IS IN FULL WORKING CAPACITY 24/7.
Do you have a plan to seek out and replace those in positions of power that have been put in place do to corruption and/or cronyism, those that don't have the ability to do the jobs they were hired for, and all that have ultimately contributed to the failure of our government to be efficient and effective?
Go Mosler!!! Warren for Governor! Let’s get our act together USVI! It’s time for positive change! Let’s stop putting Bandaids on broken dreams and give ourselves a new voice!!!!! Enough is enough. We need a competent, intelligent Governor with integrity! It’s about survival. Mosler IS the answer!!!
I have watched your style and your substance in two recent in-person gubernatorial forums and you are the man for the job.
I hope the community has had enough exposure to you and and understanding of your ideas to agree.
One relatively minor point, if the GERS buys delinquent VI real property tax debt, You seem to be under the impression that under current law the unpaid taxes would interest in favor the GERS at the rate of 8% per annum. But actually, under current law, delinquent real property taxes accrue interest in favor of the government of only 1% per month interest for 25 months, and thereafter no more interest charged, resulting thereafter in a no-further interest loan to the taxpayer. This arrangement would need to be changed if this element of your GERS plan is to help.
I want to send your campaign a check. What is its mailing address? I did not see it on the site.

It seems the only thing that you could possibly gain from winning the office is helping the people of the USVI and that makes me want to help you win even more.
What can people do to help you get out the vote and specifically reach USVI voters so they understand what is at stake and that you and Ray are clearly the right choice to save the Islands from the mismanagement and corruption that has plagued it?
Please let me know!!!
