St. Thomas, USVI - The 34th Legislature is ready and poised to start tackling major issues after being sworn in on Monday, January 11 at the Emancipation Garden in a scaled back ceremony to ensure coronavirus safeguards were met. Senate President Donna Frett-Gregory, who officially took helm of the new senate body Monday, congratulated her colleagues and ensured the people of the US Virgin Islands that she will continue to work hard on their behalf as the Territory recovers from the 2017 storms and a continuing pandemic.
In fact, the senator has already hit the ground running and stated that immediately after the Governor of the Virgin Islands delivers his State of the Territory address on Monday, January 25, the Legislature will begin to tackle important issues that impact the Territory.
“I am deeply grateful for the vote of confidence from my colleagues and the support from our community,” said Frett-Gregory on Monday. “We have a lot of work to do and we must have open, honest, and frank discussions in order to move our Territory forward,” she stressed. “Our legislative agenda will be driven by the issues that matter most to the people of the Territory. Being Senate President will not slow me down when it comes to moving impactful legislation".
Senator Donna Frett-Gregory’s designation as Senate President is monumental as she is the third female Senate President in the Territory’s legislative history.
