Letter To The Editor: Condemnation Of A Recent Press Release Issued By Edgar Baker Phillips

Opinion / Virgin Islands / July 6, 2017

Dear Editor,

The Democratic Party of the Virgin Islands Islands vehemently disavows the statements made in the press release of 7/3/17 of the St. Thomas District Chair of the Party, Mr. Edgar Baker Phillips. While it was not circulated in the newspapers, it has apparently been widely distributed on social media. It was not sanctioned by the Territorial Committee and there is no evidence that it was supported by the St. Thomas District Committee.

The unwarranted and unsubstantiated attacks on the character of several sitting senators is totally unacceptable and will not be condoned by the Democratic Party. We find such action unbefitting any leader in our Party and an undermining of the integrity of the entire body.

On behalf of the Party, we apologize for Mr Phillips’ action and deeply regret the pain and any repercussions it has caused to the Senators and their families. The Democratic Party will take such actions that are appropriate to this breach of the Party’s and the people’s trust!

Donna M. Christensen, Democratic Party state chair.
