THE BIG INTERVIEW: Canegata On Changing Business Climate In VI, His Disagreement With Coffelt On Medicinal Marijuana, High Taxes And More

Featured / News / Politics / Videos / Virgin Islands / October 25, 2014

John Canegata is a Republican, but he’d rather be called a Virgin Islander.

“Listen to my values: I respect the constitution; I believe in personal responsibility, the sanctity of life and limited government,” Canegata told the VI Consortium in our “Big Interview” series with Soraya Diase-Cofflet, the gubernatorial candidate to which he is running-mate.

Canegata also spoke on a myriad of topics–from rebuilding the Virgin Islands’ economy to his ideas for the energy crisis, his disagreement with Coffelt’s stance on the medicinal use of marijuana, and much more.

See it all in the video below.

I wear many hats, I suppose, but the one which fits me best would be journalism, second to that would be radio personality, thirdly singer/songwriter and down the line. I've been the Editor-In-Chief at my videogames website, Gamesthirst, for over 5 years, writing over 7,000 articles and more than 2 million words. I'm also very passionate about where I live, the United States Virgin Islands, and I'm intent on making it a better place by being resourceful and keeping our leaders honest. VI Consortium was birthed out of said desire, hopefully my efforts bear fruit. Reach me at [email protected]
