Dancia Penn-Sallah confirmed as VIP 8th district candidate

The rumours and speculations have come to an end.

Former Attorney General and Deputy Governor Dancia Penn-Sallah, OBE, QC (in photo) has been confirmed as the opposition Virgin Islands Party's 8th District candidate for the Aug. 20 general election, according to a reliable source.

Penn-Sallah, who this year took up an appointment as an acting judge of the Court of Appeal of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court after resigning as deputy governor, was confirmed by a majority vote of the VIP Congress, the party's governing body, Monday night.

According to sources, Penn-Sallah was present at the meeting and the VIP camp is now in great spirits. Sources say the confirmation came after several weeks of intense negotiations and it is believed that her inclusion in the party will strengthen the VIP's chances in the Aug. 20 general election.

Penn-Sallah was sought after the VIP removed Douglas Wheatley without saying specifically why.

VIP President Carvin Malone told our newsroom then that Wheatley was nominated by the 8th District committee but due to “certain motions” that was forwarded by the committee to the VIP congress, the party decided to remove Wheatley.

Malone added that the Eighth District committee “is now in the process of selecting a candidate for the district and an announcement will be made soon.”

During this "process of selecting", rumours were rampant that Penn-Sallah was the next best choice, but the VIP has remained tight-lipped.

At one point it appeared as though the party would not field a candidate amidst rumours that she turned down the party's offer. But Monday night's overwhelming vote of support for Penn-Sallah's official inclusion in the VIP party snuffed out all speculations and put the icing on the cake for the Ralph O'Neal-led team.

According to sources, Penn-Sallah will be officially declared at the VIP’s 8th District rally/launch today at 8 p.m. in Parham Town.

Penn-Sallah, who will be entering politics for the first time, will run against the ruling National Democratic Party's incumbent Hon. Lloyd Black who launched his candidacy on Saturday. However, politics is not new to her large family with roots in East End. Her brother Andre Penn, a managing partner in her company Dancia Penn & Co., was a former 8th District representative and member of the Legislative Council from 1995-1999. He was a member of the opposition United Party.

Penn-Sallah will also run against independent candidates Lloyd Wheatley and Douglas Wheatley.

There are unconfirmed reports that one of the Wheatleys may bow out of the race.

There is also another question that hopefully will be answered this week when the VIP releases its official statement: will Penn-Sallah be the next premier or deputy if the VIP is successful in the upcoming election?

In the meantime, visit this Wikipedia link to view a brief bio of Penn-Sallah and/or this profile from her law firm's website, Dancia Penn & Co.


   


Reader Opinions
JUL 25 • the person do know what they are saying I have wrote comments and I do live in east end which is in the eight district
Be from the 8th to talk bout the 8th
JUL 25 • I've read as much as I could read before responding.
It is Obvious a lot of you who are replying are not from the 8th district
And it is more obvious when you begin stating that Mrs Penn- Sallah was a supporter of the National Democratic Party last election, that you know not what you are saying.

Well I aint from East End, I from James “Jimmy” Young. And I can’t be or rather wouldn’t be fooled, by all this folly.

Dancia was never a supporter of the NDP, neither her nor the majority of her family, NOTE I said majority. That family is not people friendly. (I expect you to jump on Black now about being people friendly), but let me set the record straight in advance) the fact is… Black is people friendly to just the right crowd of people (the people of the 8th district), because he isn’t going to please the entire BVI. Every single weekend Black is through and through the people of the 8th district (NOTE I didn’t just say East End). As a matter of fact, he is there more than any... and I will stress any... of those Penns’ from their on the hill. (again you need to be from east to know what’s going on).

Believe it or not, we were waiting on Dancia, we the people of the 8th wanted her more than she would come to realize on August 20th, because we sending a message… 1st ‘Come from up on your high horse, you’re not better than us’ and Secondly ‘we don’t back quitters.’

No, I aint crazy, she is a quitter. Every good job she has had, in a matter of time she leaves them
1) Attorney General
2) Deputy Governor (which she did not last 2 years)
3) Attorney at Law (her business is failing due to lack of devoted time)
4) And now acting judge of court of appeal (she would not be able to practice while in the political arena).

Before you’ll jump up on Black any more, (be from the 8th to speak of the 8th)

And tell me. With all of Mrs. Penn- Sallah’s years in the Public Service firstly as Attorney General, then as Deputy Governor (a recommendation by the National Democratic Party’s Government of which she DID NOT support), What has she done for the people of the BVI?

Now answer this question from a private perspective. While practicing as an Attorney at Law at Dancia Penn and Co., what has she done for the people of the BVI? Tell me….
And please no vague answers.

For each thing you list that she has done, I will be back and give three that she has blocked that were in favor of BVIslanders.

Ayo keep off of Black.
Be from the district to talk about the district.
Cause all you all seem to know, what is going on in East End, more than East End people.
Is a good thing, our votes would count on Election Day and not all who seem to be online blabbing.
JUL 24 • I listened to Mrs Sallah tonight and she is indeed a very well spoken person. But I think she has encountered a big problem because she is definitely a misfit where she ended up. She stands for no name calling etc. I wonder how she will control her colleagues. She has a big job before her. She also stated that she needs experience and mature politicians to work with. She has left me wondering indeed.
JUL 24 • Thats a hard one for those guys to swallow. After getting the party together and trying everything to win. Now a lady from the East will get first Premier. No matter how it turn they probably will lose sleep. if vip don't win they will not sleep good and if Ms. Penn comes the first Premier, they still will not sleep to know that the position went to someone else. They probably bit their tongue and everything else just to keep peace and show that it is not about position just to get her in the camp. They probably have heart burn from holding it all in.
VIP ALL THE WAY
JUL 24 • Some of you say that she will not get it cause she has not done anything for East End Why would she....she was not an repersentitive of the 8th Black was he was the one to see that the people of the 8th eat. She was taking care of herself and family and yes she is a every nice person. How that she is running we will become part of her family and live as one. And one is asking why did she leave the AG job why don;t you ask the NDP. They wanted her to do things that will hurt our country and she said no. So people if you don't live in the East get your fax from someone who knows. Even if she don't win she is still a proud woman some of you will never see or walk in her footsteps. I am from East End and i am voting VIP all the way cause we need help and black is not doinf his job. Only now he want to talk about doinf things and he was in there for 8 years now. Let it go black and let someone who knows how to talk care of people do the job. The car wash is not the only place that people hang out.
Tolagal
JUL 24 • Election Night will tell it all. May the Best Man or Woman with the Strength of The People Win.
JUL 24 • Dancia I watch from day one and your is a woman of prestidge you act so high minded you have never contributed nothing or done nothing for our district. Dancia you have never in your life time come talking to people in the district but now that you are running you want to come begging the people to vote for you.
JUL 24 • We up East are who bug her to run after we had a set back with Douglas. We was not taking no for an answer. It took a while but she said yes in the end. So NDP supporters please stop telling lies.
BLACK
JUL 24 • Black and NDP all the way!!! Dancia go back to run yo law firm and sort it out.
Let's Be Mature About Our Election Process
JUL 24 • I wonder at times if every political candidate was to have a clean campaign where they present their agenda along with their capabilities for being a representative, which party would win.

Would people vote the whole party in or choose who they believe are best qualified and are capable of working together professionally.

We see so much people bashing each other, stepping on each other, putting each other down, just to get ahead. We see this everyday and now it is evident in politics.

If some candidates potray this type of behaviour, I do not see them changing once in government. These are the people who would be leading our nation. How will this be setting an example for our people.

I am asking all registered voters to put aside any biases, think for yourselves and not vote because a friend or family is voting a certain way, weigh the strong and weak points, be fair, clear your mind for a day or two and start reflecting on the entire campaigns, the previous governments contributions whatever they may have been, and then make an effective decision for our people for our future.

Not because you are leaning towards a certain party makes a candidate who not with that party corrupt, or the worse person in the world.

So let's give credit where credit is due on all parties.
JUL 24 • Dancia as being a lawyer and since you have joined the VIP and as I am a VIP surpporter I want you to tell us how you are going to explain the letter frazer wrote becuase right now he has shown the people that we are liers and I need you to take us out of this mess. Things are not looking good for us you is our only hope
JUL 24 • Dancia I want you to explain tonight why you resign from being the Deputy Governor is it becuase you wanted more than that you wanted to be the first premier
Jeeezus Piece
JUL 24 • After the storm

You are obviously an NDP supporter with MUCH to lose! Good thing is, your pointless rambling will not pull a wool over the people of the 8th district or the BVI eyes! You sound SILLY! You act as if you are a mind reader! Dr Smith was one of the best, if not THE BEST surgeon/medical doctor from the BVI. Why the hell didn't he stay there?? Would it be fair for me to say that him and Picko joined politics for POWER as well? Well hush your foolish mouth! She's QUALIFIED to be the first woman premier so if she is, SO BE IT! When the NDP grabbed up Ms Parsons and Alvin to form their government nobody made a peep, although both candidates had questionable pasts with the VIP. All of a sudden some people grow a frigging conscience!!!! Stop! You all are desperate! Come out and listen to an EDUCATED WOMAN OF THE SOIL tonight! Again, nothing you said made any sense! Trying to scare off people about plot to be premier, BS! We don't want those sneaky, highty tighty buggers running our country anymore! We have highest GDP yet people can barely buy a bottle of milk without thinking twice about it! VIP!!! HA!! BAM BAM BAM!!!! THey have ya'll JAM-IN and yuh cyaant cum out!!! HA HA HA HA
JUL 24 • Dancia I hope you choose your words wisely becuase right now everyone know that you are power hungry and you have joined the right team for that
JUL 24 • AYO THE PEOPLE IN THE BARS UP EAST DONE CELEBRATING
JUL 24 • Everybody going to be up east tonight. Dancia rocking the place
JUL 24 • WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE go fly a kite. Dancia and VIP all the way.
STOP
JUL 24 • What is wrong with this picture: Are you for real when you say conflict of intrest you have the wrong camp. You need to check into the NDP camp. Lets talk WATER and TELECOM should I go on.
Setting the Record Straight!
JUL 24 • Since when you all can't see through the smoke screen. Since when de rich BVI does send de youths abroad to school with tuition ONLY money, and them got to get everything else on them own. You may say that's empowerment but when you goin to pay one single parent house rent and she brother daycare past due bill, for such recurrent expenses that is really giving a grown woman and grown man a baby doctor fish to eat! Lest I explain that any more!! BVI folks, wake up and smell the Queen's Coffee, it's right behind the present heat wave and because God loves this beautiful British Virgin Islands a 100 ain't dead like in the outer world due to the fact that he is claiming his own to once again get this country, of Thee, outta de hands of the "en dee pee".
Good bye Chief
Good bye Dr. P
Good bye Primier aspirant R W
Good bye Miss Pee, take care
Good bye Action
Good bye Puffy Cheeks.

HATS OFF TO A NEW DAY DAWNING 21ST AUGUST 2007.
WHAT A TING
JUL 24 • I am a BVILander comming home to vote and All I can say is WHAT A TING>>>>>>>>
concern
JUL 24 • people please! choose candidates that have the best interest of the people and the country at heart!
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE
JUL 24 • SHE COULD NOT DO THE JOB OF THE PEOPLE BECAUSE SHE HAD A CONFLICT OF INTEREST. HOW CAN WE HAVE THESE KIND OF PEOPLE DECEIVING US THE PEOPLE OF THE BVI. THESE PEOPLE IN THE BVI ARE SO GREEDY THEY REALLY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY REALLY WANT. I FIGURE SHE WAS SO TIED SHE HAD TO RUN HER LAW FIRM BUT IT WAS NOT SO. WHY DO WE HAVE TO TELL SO MANY LIES TO GET WHAT WE WANT IN LIFE. POLITICIAN ARE POWER HUNGRY.
DO NOT GET ME WRONG NOTHING IS WRONG WITH SOME COMPETITION EVERY NOW AND THEN BUT DANCIA DO NOT HAVE THIS COUNTRY AT HEART. SHE HELD ONE OF THE HIGHEST POSITION AND DID NOT APPRECIATE. YOU HAVE OPEN UP URSELF TO BE DISRESPECTED BY ALL I HOPE YOU COULD APPRECIATE THAT.
JUL 24 • What a thing you only wish it was one person who felt this way. You will learn.
JUL 24 • I would really like to see how Dancia can tame Fraser, Omar, Andrew and Alvin. That will be the day. Poor Fraser and Andrew they must be boiling vex but they got to grin and bear it, I would agree with them, they have worked hard for the VIP now Dancia come in the last shower of rain and getting to be Premier before them.
WHAT A THING. Something had to offered for her to accept at this last minute. Any fool can figure this out
JUL 24 • I am in the eight districat and i am going to place my X on both parties Lloyd and Dancia :)
JUL 24 • What a thing I think you are right. The tone of these negative comments are too similar. Either that or we have a lot of copy-cat posters.
2nd after the storm
JUL 24 • I second that!
What a Thing
JUL 24 • I repeat....you one NDP supporter...stop changing your name making people think that it is so much in the east against Mrs. Penn...we are not fooled by you nor the NDP....family don't count, nor do friends...if my father and I don't see eye to eye and he running for a political seat, what the hek, I going to back who I want. Why don't you guys be thankful that a woman of this caliber could cleanup the so-called mess, you keep saying that VIP in. One right, can turn around all the wrong.

For VI Eastendlanders, you should be ashamed to call down your very own. Why the heck all of you don't send Dr.Smith to help the sick people in this land. No!!! he did not just turn a doctor...he's been that from time I know myself. It's a pity that she aint think the same sentiments as you and that is...that the NDP was the right team to join. If the doc really wanted her to stay put, why in Heaven did they treat her the way they did when she was the Deputy Governor....only because she left them you all want to talk...come East tonight to hear more talk....as a matter of fact, stay home and enjoy it on every radio station. Bam! You all full of shoe! If the VIP has their faults...let the woman help clean them up, when election is over, all them candidates skinning and grinning round the table and you all here and there changing your names to fool off the people. Get real Tola...the world is reading!!!
After the storm there is a calm
JUL 24 • School children say that Mrs. Penn Sallah left the Deputy Governor post because she wanted to be a first women Judge of the Be We I. After she resigned from her post of first Be We Eye Woman Deputy Governor, the We Eye Pee was so desperate for someone whom they feel has a little power; they nearly badger her to death to be on their side.

Don't be fooled by the We Eye Pee. When the BVI was going to hell under the gween and whyte teeem, she too joined with the In De Pee and caused the collapse of the We Eye Pee. The school children say, it's not that she is against the In De Pee why she is with the We Eye Pee; it is because she was promised the Premiership after a year or so, because Ralphee wants to be it first. That would mean for her, that she will be the first BVI Women QC, first BVI Attorney General, and first Women Deputy Governor and would now add to her list, first Women Top Leader (Premier) of the BVI. It is the fame and fortune that is promised to her at this late stage, the reason why she has announced her candidacy, and not because of the State of the Territory. If it was so, she would've left the post as Deputy Governor and declared her candidacy posthaste. This Premiership opportunity would not have been possible with the In De Pee. It's not who gets to be the first Be We Eye women title, it what's best for the future of the country is what we need to concern ourselves with. Anyone of your daughters could be the first premier in the future, if they have the country at heart.

Little does she know that she is being hoaxed in the middle of a hurricane worst than Hugo.

Be We Eye, a power storm is rallying under the gween and whyte teeem. Can't you see that the We Eye Pee are power hungry. They will do and promise you or even a fly anything to get back in power. They are not so much into the welfare of the county. They are the kind of people who want to get what they can from the country, not what they can do for their country. They had a chance to have the country at heart, but they had however, the heart of the country in foreign banks. They have clouded your thinking that the In Dee Pee is doing bad things because of foreign Investments. Name one small thriving country without foreign investments. They are trying to BS you, it just isn’t funny. The “small man felt the pinch because of the We Eye Pee, not the In De Pee. They are the one's who left the kitty with petty change. Lots of things too destructive to the economy and the balance of the B We I, rallied under the gween and whyte teeem that embarrassed we country. You all forget already???? Do you think that she ONE can stop all the others when joined together from doing their c*o#rr^u%p$t deeds? She would be oblivious to their under-the-table dealings if they were to be reinstated as the Govt of the day. She might be highly educated, but she ain't gangster ready for them. If she is so great to them they should have considered her to be an at-large candidate, instead of Zoowee. So don't be fooled by the noise, all she means to them, is a ticket to the $$$$$$$$ door. Be on guard; turn on your security system. Jam-in your X next to your district rep and the 4 at-large candidates with the symbol of the family to activate your security code. Protect you valuable assets, your children, further of this country.
JUL 24 • I agree with you "reading", a lot of those comments come from within the NDP camp and they can't even vote in the 8th district, but they got to air what "Glover" tell them to say.
JUL 24 • clearing those last comments are beening made by ndp supporters .... all i want to say why are people like this....if we are ndp supporters it is ok but if we are vip supporters it seen to me that we are not alright..
just to say people have a ChOICE if they choose to NDP or VIP there should be respected............

And my choice is VIP all the..Wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy....
NDP supporters really desperate!
JUL 24 • Lawd, them NDP supportes really desperate, them trying to discredit a proven lady of high integrity. Mrs. Penn-Sallah, you really got them hopping. Good Ting....Keep them hopping. VIP ALL THE WAY!
NDP ALL THE WAY!!!
JUL 24 • If ayo think her business is doing bad now…look at when our candidate in the 8th sweeps her under the carpet!!! It will plummet to beneath ground 0!!! I cant believe she will decide to run knowing that she is not as beloved as she is pretending to be in the 8th…she too haughty!!! She cant get all the Penn votes much less other households!!! Politics is about people, not prestige. The sooner she realize that, the better! Just how she come to the race late she could bow out early before she shame herself toooooo bad!!! Its all a plow…wha she thought the truth would not be revealed…we here in the 8th district know your history too well!!! When her brother ran and won the election…they take him and close him up in a house. Not a man had access to him like he was some big celebrity and now she coming!!! He ain do a thing for East End because she was dictating what he could do…and who he could help.
TELL HER COME…we waiting!!!! NDP ALL THE WAY!!!
Power? Give me break
JUL 24 • .....and if you knew anything about legislature, you would stop stressing on "power" and get back to real purpose of the legislature which is to serve the people and represent this country to fullest. We need honest people with integretiy to lead this country and I believe Dancia has country at heart not "power". So let's get back to the real purpose of the legislature, i.e. honest representation!
CAN SHE AGREE?
JUL 24 • CAN DANCIA PENN AGREE WITH THE LYING, SCULLDUVERY TACTICS OF JULIAN FRASER. HOW CAN SHE ALIGN HERSELF WITH MEN LIKE THEM ON THE VIP? MRS. PENN-SALLAH CAN YOU AGREE WITH THAT OR WILL YOUR TRAINING AS A LAWYER OBSTRUCT YOU?
The Choice is STILL CRYSTAL CLEAR!!!
JUL 24 • Let us see Dancia Penn for who she really is. Questions have been posted as to why she would align herself with a team known for their corrupt practices. Well may I remind you my lovely people that this is the very woman, who, when the Attorney General of these beautiful (then tarnished) Virgin Islands refused to prosecute Ralph O’Neal for the misrepresentations that he made during 1994/5 general elections when dead and alive were voting by proxy??? When people came to the polls to be informed that they had already voted???
He was referred to in the public sphere as “A Powerful and Corrupt Man” and he sued the person who made the statement. Do you remember the outcome of that case??? The judge ruled in favour of the defendant (the person being sued) that he was in fact a powerful and corrupt man…that is when it all came to light what he had done for the elections of that year…but guess what??? The Attorney General has the authority to bring prosecutions against whomever he/she chooses.
You needn’t wonder what happened to that poor old judge…ha ha ha…let us just say…soon after that ruling…they were almost miraculously whisked from the shores of the BVI.
The bottom line…SHE IS JUST AS CORRUPT as they are!!! This is one time I glad I from East End!!! There’ll be a weeping and a whaling!!! NDP ALL THE WAY!!!

JUL 24 • Dunce see ya. For all the education you have, you gone in the VI mess. Yuh lower yurself to join, LIARS? Why you didnt think about this? You told all the family who ask you if you are running...no you are not running and look at you now. You LIEING just like them! What gon happen if you get een. All of your credibility OUT THE DOOR!

JUL 24 • how many of you could vote in the 8th district who making comments
Not at all!
JUL 24 • Dancia go and sit down you done mash up yourself joining the infected "ganggreen"
Power..Give me a...
JUL 24 • If you knew anything about politics you would know that none of that power Dancia has can compare to being in the Legislature, much less being Premier. Dancia loves power and she has lined herself up to get it. And on election day if the cards aint clear on VIP side, nothing will stop her from moving to the other side. It's all about the power.

Look and see.
iLADY IAURA
JUL 24 • Dear Mrs. Penn-Salla and the rest of the loving BVI. First off I wish you nothing but the best in your run for office under the VIP Manifesto but I am kinda confused. When you held the position as Deputy Governor you stated that you had to leave because of personal reasons, those reasons being I think that your firm was in need of your attention, but you lied and have been lying to the me and the people of the BVI. You knew you wanted to be aligned with the VIP you should have just said so, but not disrespect the office of Deputy Governor.
THen the next thing is people are placing you ona pedestal as if you can do no wrong.I warn you the people of the BVI just take a loat those that have done worng and continue to lie and cheat to get to the top just for the love of power.
To those NDP supporters your team also has the love of greed, but I am more referring to the VIP party, because they have a past, present and future track record of all the doings of evil, lying, stealing, corruption that any nation can think about.
But again Mrs Penn-Sallah I wish you the best o luck, but please stop being dishonest with the people. You have let me down not only as a female but a BVIslander.
GOOD LUCK TO ALL!!
JUL 24 • The Last Writer

Well, let the people decide. They could not build a nation in 4 years. They just build on what they met. When you are trying to convince the people have facts. The NDP did more bad than good. People of the 8th District. Vote Dancia Penn and the entire VIP team. VIP all the way.
Power? Give me a break!
JUL 24 • To those of you who talking about "power", please....give me a break..... Mrs. Penn-Sallah does not need to be in government to have "power". This lady up until very recently has been an eastern caribbean judge, she is an established lady. This lady has credentials beyond measure. Instead of resting on her laurels she has decided to put country before self and give this country the proper representation that is currently lacking...all i know...is that she has served with the NDP and she got know why it's time for them to get packing. VIP all the way!
JUL 24 • Can you imagine what kind of Constitution we would have gotten if Hon. Smith was not there to represent us. And they try to call him and his team down. NDP All the way.
MAN ABOUT TOWNmanabouttown@town.com
JUL 24 • MAN ABOUT TOWN IS BACK, MY PEOPLE WHEN WE LOOK AT HON. DANCIA PENN WE WILL SEE SHE HAS MADE MEANINGFUL CONTRIBUTIONS TOWARDS THE DEVELOPMENT OF THIS COUNTRY FROM ALL ASPECT. WE ARE NOT VOTING FOR HER BECAUSE OF THIS REASON. I AM SAYING TO YOU THE PEOPLE SHE IS A GOOD SLAES WOMAN, SHE WILL DELIVER THE GOODS AND SHE WILL REPRESENT THE PEOPLE. AS OF NOW I WILL SET UP A CANDLE LITE FOR THE VIP PARTY UNTIL COMES OUT VICTORIOUS HEY BREAKING NEWS, NEWS JUST REACH MAN ABOUT TOWN THAT THE HON. BLACK HORSE FOOT HAS BEEN BROKEN SO HE IS RETIRING HURT. . PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT A PAID POLITICAL ANNOUNCEMENT, THIS IS MY DEMOCRATIC RIGHTS. SO MR. MERRICK ANDREWS PLEASE POST MY COMMENT
JUL 24 • Dancia, you is family and under any other circumstance, me and my peeps would be voting for you, even as a member of VIP. But unfortunately VIP got two thing by the name of Frazier and Omar that too ignorant to be living and I never want to see in charge of this country everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr againnnn. And a new comer by the name of Zoe. So unfortunately we have to vote against you, just to keep them out. Maybe if they retire from VIP and you run again you got us, but not with them around sorry.
JUL 24 • I would have thought that Dancia would have been smart enough to not align herself with the VIP. It is known to the BVI that this party wasted millions of taxpayers monies on the bridge, hand-outs, mount peebles and mount savage and the list goes on and on. The issues at hand are still not being addressed by the VIP, will Ms. Penn address us on these. The VIP are all talking down the government on the developments that are being planned but have not said what they will do to further develop our beloved country. If they carry on the same development that they are accusing the NDP of under taking then they would be proven liars. Ms Penn has her own mind but I certainly would not have brought down my standard for a potential position. Will they all get along? I really don't see the team spirit with the VIP.
We need answers as to what the proposed saviour for the VIP will do to help continue the success that we have experienced especially during the last four years.
Any BVIlander that is honest with themselves knows that this is true, we have been more respected as a nation under the four years of the NDP than with the 12 years under the VIP.
Real Talk
JUL 24 • they saying this and that we're saying check the facts. Ain't Nothing is ndp all the way aint no turning back. Good Luck Ms Penn but we got this. I can't wait for the 21st not 20th the 21st alot of ayo going be sweating.

JUL 24 • Congratulations to Mrs. Penn-Sallah for running with the team of Your choice. We all know you had other choices but you and God knows why you are running on the VIP ticket.

I know you to be a woman of high integrity so the comments about your intentions doesn't move me.

I know that with you on board the Virgin Islands Party can only get better and stronger.

Like Mr. Christopher you have worked with both parties and you have made your choice. We respect your choice and wish you nothing but the best.

People of Distrist 8 just remember that she is good but she needs a team to work with and she has chosen the VIP. So on election day if you want her in the government you have to vote VIP all the way. Bam.

JUL 24 • Some of you all will get stomach aches after election and realize East End people throw her out. I don't know what stupid bush yall on talking saying how "OH WE LOVE SHE"..HAHAHAHHA SHE? HAHAHHAHA The rest of the Virgin Islands in for the shock of their lives come 21st of August.

JUL 24 • What did she do under the O’Neal Administration?

When the BVI was going to hell in a basket, you never saw her face featuring with the VIP…ha ha ha!!! All of a sudden she is the saviour of the BVI!!! Don’t worry Mrs. Penn-Sallah…the NDP administration has already restored the stability to our economy, accountability and responsibility to our leaders and respectability to every man, woman and child who has a stake in this country! Our saviour was elected on the 16th of June 2003 and we are NOT going backward!
JUL 24 • Competition is healthy. Black was too comfortable in his shoes for a while now.
RALLY....
JUL 24 • Why the hell ayo bring up Ayana name from...Wellsa! I am a resident of the 6th district and I live Purcell, and it ain no way I going put my expensive X next to her name! So Ayana GO SIT DOWN & SAVE YOURSELF THE EMBARASSMENT!!!!

What a Thing
JUL 24 • You know what...I aint saying no more.

People of the east get with the program, NDP don't have a majority of wins...so why give Black another chance by himself...he alone can't form a government. DON'T WASTE YOUR VOTE...C U all Lata!!!!
JOKES - We bringing this homeeee.....
JUL 24 • lol yea buddy election hot.. Guess wha the eighth district is not the penn family alone. Big deal if Dancia chose to run we still winning this election. According to NDP ALL THE WAY east end , long look is a funny set a people. I from there i shoould know lol... I wonder wha them going do when BLack beat DANCIA. This going be a mash up cause now it going have split votes think on it not all penn with Dancia i say no more.
soon come
JUL 24 • All I have to say is, "bring it on Dancia!!!" We waiting... You going get such a beating.
JUL 24 • iDIOT u ever hear if u pass a note in class u share it. it is rude that she is doing that point blank
JUL 24 • If Dancia is power hungry she fits perfectly in the scheme of things in the BVI because so is everyone in the NDP! Good luck Dancia - Competition is a good thing, and in this case it comes with brains as well!
To WAIT!!!
JUL 24 • You must know who childish because your email is certainly not mature. Of all the things I heard about Ayanna, I have never heard that she is immature.

She is an intelligent, girl from right up here in Purcell who make something of herself and it hurting all you. She does not make stupid decisions, you check the record.

Here how petty you are bout passing note. She must know the camera on her because she is the host you fool. You don't even know what the note said but your judging her on passing it and doing her eye. I have to laugh

Yani, as we does call you, you hurting them. Don't worry, we got your back. I wish you were running for us up in the 6th.

Childishness... you don't like her because she rebut too much. Jokes... I bet I can tell you a few negatives about your self.

YOu wish you really had something negative to say about this girl's character, but you don't so you talking crap. The more you talk, the more she rise.
JUL 24 • Signs of Ignorant, jealous mind.

the woman barely announce that she joing VIP and look at all the crap dem saying. That is pure jealousy and hatred. Black sat back and was resting in his laurels. He helped only a few selected individuals in east and ayo expect us to continuously accept this sort of behaviour. Keep hating , dem talk bout VIP got a bunch or uneduacted people. But now VIP not only has Lawyer, doctors, business men, pilots, etc, them jamming . so stop being scared, we goin tek back the country and place the power back into the hands of d people.
Stop
JUL 24 • If Dancia is all about power then what is Mark all about. Mark crook the VIP and after they done so much for him he calling them evil.
What a Thing
JUL 24 • OK Black kudos to you...you paved some roads and re-built the park you had growing debris for your eight years in office.....what else? Oh..I forgot....gave out a few white envelopes at the brink of election time...
JUL 24 • J I WITH YOU VIP ALL THE WAY RALLY ROUND THE GREEN AND WHITE TEAM. COUNTRY IN A MESS VIP TO THE RESCUE
JUL 24 • I have to comment on one poster who said tell Mr. Wheathley and he supporters to bite the hand that feed him and vote against VIP since he got throw away. He would be a fool to do that because it will only show he has no real love for the NDP only using them to get back. Besides let he do it we don’t want him or ever wanted him and his supporters. We got Dancia now that’s all we have to say D-A-N-C-I-A deal with that. And we know she will keep them East End people in check and have Cloth over them, the Penn them back in things, you think this is JJ this is Dancia boss and the East know when she say jump they better ask how high. She got credentials and even them crazy East people recognizing that and she will put VIP back on top. So tell the Wheathley them scatter PTPP(Parham Town Penn Power) in the house. Wheathley don’t have no pull, that’s more than likely why he had to be disregarded.
J
JUL 24 • VIP ALLLL THE WAY.LETS BRING IT HOME & CLEAN UP THE MESS IN OUR COUNTRY
JUL 24 • God be with you until we meet at Jesus feet. Good bye
Dancia
JUL 24 • What has Dancia done for the BVI and East End. She is as indecisive as a child.

1. She left a failing practice to take up AG.

2. She was A G and left it to go back to her practice.

3. Instead of going back to the practice when she left AG, she became the Deputy Governor.

4. The civil service is no better after that service.

5. She took up an appointment as a Judge and before it even start she stop that to try to get Premier.

Even her family telling her to go run her practice.

Dancia is obsessed with power and she she has it in writing or she would not have run with VIP. So it will be interesting to know how five premiers will work on one side. All captain no indians.

If you want legal advice, would you go to Dancia Penn & Co.... No, so if you are looking for representation why would you go to Dancia.

Even her colleagues think this is a joke.

I from East End, VIP think this is it but we have news for them because we ain't voting for VIP nor she.
JUL 24 • Dancia when ever given a big position she always quit you really think that dancia has the eighth district in mind if she was so interested in the district she grew up in when her brother was the representative she could have motivated him to do alot and ensure that alot was done for the district. We all know that she is using the district as a front so if the vIP win she will be the first woman to be premier of the country.
JUL 24 • the only shame now is the NDP and the financial state they has the country in. Shame on you look at the financial figures and the borrowing and the security then you should run your big mouth.
Stop
JUL 24 • Shame on you; the standard of living that we enjoy in this country most of it can be attributed to the VIP. We the people of the BVI should be giving GOD thanks for the VIP.
JUL 24 • I would like to know what Hon Black did or did not do. I have yet to hear from one single VIP supporter what he did or did not do, besides this vague “he did things wrong” or what somebody on the street say, also called melee, gossip, propaganda( the stigma’s that rule small communities of people when even smaller brain cells). What are these “things”? Can you people not think for yourselves? You vote because “THEM SAY” such and such. My God you people are-----. And I want to know where is the 8th District is it just from greenland up or is their more to it than that. You expect all accomplishments to be centered in just that location?
She can't save them
JUL 24 • To: Lock down

Lock down sounds like she has East End people under control.

Yawl talking bout this woman like she is a saviour who has come to save all.

Betta don't stir up East End people with this kinda talk. They might vote against her just for spite.
Election going to be Sweeeeeeeeettttt
JUL 24 • There is absolutely NO fight on the VIP side about the Premier seat. We have it together, trust me. People don’t be fooled with the tactics of the NDP…and if you are fooled…let me tell you they are the ones with a FIGHT. The 2nd at-large picture on the top of their advertisement done say, that 1st Premier seat is his…go ask his family. Doc going to deal with some h----- issues so he can’t stick around….why the NDP don’t stop fooling the people, Tola small and your little peeps done get let out the bag. STOP PLAYING GAMES or ask Glover for another strategy.

I’m sorry for all of you who aint in the East and trying to determine the new 8th district’s candidate future….(well hello Miss Cleo’s just so you know cleo gone bankrupt and fooled many)…. Dancia didn’t have to announce months ago….she could come up to the night before nomination to declare…so what’s you all point…too sad that you all KNOW that you’re fighting a losing battle, she had to deal with a lot of things first obviously for a woman of her Caliber.….but remember Delores only won by 3 so even if Dancia or any other VIP man or woman win by 1…..guess what WE HAVE STILL WON. Our TEAM is united and strong. One TEAM is on with a mission and that is to take back our beloved Virgin Islands from………………..

You all thought you knew everything including them so-called family members who were up and down saying jack squat that she aint running….I wish I could see all their faces now or ADMIN was that you fooling us with your various names?....…people look out for the country’s best interest and stop trying to put the way ahead in a downhill by voting the NDP glover group. They run a deficit (bad spending) in 2006 and according to their campaign in 2003, the VIP spent millions and millions and millions and more of what they did not have. Don’t you see that they are in the same boat….wake up and smell the tactics.

There’s a powerful woman in our TEAM….fa la la la la…..she strong like iron and ox…… and we’re proud to know we were her TEAM of choice. BAM!!!!!!!!!!!!
Shame on you!
JUL 24 • Miss Dancia shame on you for aligning yourself with a team like this VIP. You are loosing your soul, the respect and the clout you have tried so hard to build over the years.
JUL 24 • Talk God she come because we know the wheathley them could not do it. :-))
WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
JUL 24 • Ayana running in the 6th? Ha Ha Ha! Dat gyrl tooooo childish. When she grow up maybe we will be more accepting. She lacks maturity BAAAADDDDD! Do you see her on tv when she know the people calling passing notes along to the others and giving them the eye. The fool dont even know the camera does be on she. She tooo arrogant. And she just dont get it. She rebuts everything...she think she in court...well actually she is, she's in the court of public opinion and we will have the last say so keep on rebutting gyrl!!! Ha Ha. grow up!!!!
Well Well
JUL 24 • Tortola people, Dancia ain even launch yet??? Where ah yah get the woman want to be PREMIER?!?!?! Have muccy man ... calm down leh we see how VIP restructure ah yah to poorah!!!!

Caring about the future of your country
JUL 24 • It is evident that respect left this country. Young and Old behave! STOP IT! I am proud that Ms. Penn stood up from the table, got fed up of the mess that was on it and choose to do something about it.
People, this is a critical time for us, THINK, who don't have the brains to think ask God to give you some quick.
This woman has has serve the country in various capacities. Listen enough of the bad talking. Right has seemingly become wrong and wrong is so acceptable among many. This election is not just for us, but the things that take place in this term will decide the future of many of our children. We need to focus on respect again. WHy must we pull down each other, DOES it make you feel better at nights.
If any one of you think you can impact this society better, come out but at this point some of us are desperate for things to get back in order.

Think people before you talk. Where is the love?
JUL 24 • this only shows how Dancia continue to be power hungry she was attorney general she quit, deputy govenor and quit and now she wants to be the first premier because we all know that all that she was the first woman to hold these post.

We all know that you like power.
STOP
JUL 24 • This country needs Dancia, I just can't understand why all the bashing. VIP or NDP this woman is a plus for the BVI.
VIP ALL THE WAY
JUL 24 • WHY CAN'T YOU'LL JUST CAST A VOTE IT ALWAYS HAS TO BE SOME NEGATIVE THING. EITHER YOU VOTE OR YOU DON'T. SHE COULD RUN WITH WHO SHE WANTS IT'S HER RIGHT. YOU MADE THE RIGHT DECISION. THE COUNTRY SINKING AND THEY CANT SEE IT.
Lock DOOOWWWNNN
JUL 24 • Ms. Penn has East End on LOCK DOWN!!!!!!!

I can see her as the next Chief Minister in a positive way too!!
JUL 24 • HHAHAHA tell her come, tell her come. New face, same last name, carrying same Penn votes, licks in her tail, we waiting.
JRG
JUL 24 • Congratulations Mrs Penn-Sallah for joining with Team VIP. I know that you will represent the 8th District and BVI with integrity. VIP All The Way.
JUL 24 • I do not understand. Politic is for anyone. Why are they bashing the woman? We had enough of the NDP. People were saying this for months. "They can't wait for election day to get rid of that NDP".
vg
JUL 24 • vip all the way.
JUL 24 • What wrong with you people if Dancia choose to run with VIP so be it. You have the option of voting for or againts her and that is all you have to do. I dont understand all these negatives that people are trying to come up with because she join with the VIP. This comment thing is really sickening. She choose who she want to run with, you all vote for who you want. strupees
JUL 24 • DANCIA ...SHE GONE TO MEET THE HYPOCRITS LOL LOL POOR WOMAN I WONDER WA SHE GOING DO WHEN BLACK BEAT HER THE VIP THINK THEY GOT IT NOW LOL TELL THEM THINK AGAIN. AYANA DONT MIND THEM YOU THE BEST CONDIDATE FOR THE 6TH RUN AGAINST OMAR HODGE GIVE HE A RUN FOR HE MONEY YOU DID WELL GIRL DONT MIND THE NOISE.
NDP ALL THE WAY..............................
JUL 24 • I respect Ms Penn but guess what she aint no threat lol... Is east end people yah talking bout them is funny people.. ayo will onnly see.Remember upper east is not the eight district alone.
STOP
JUL 24 • I wonder if the people who are knocking Dancia really care about this country. This woman has been an example for all. This woman will do wonders for this country.
JUL 24 • HAHAHAHAAHAHAH Vote for Dancia my A** . This woman is so da*n fickle. She changes important jobs/responsiblity like people change shoes and I must vote for her? I would vote for L. Wheathley first. Next thing I vote for her and she wakes up the next morning and changes her mind on that too.NO way in hell, she has no commitment besides her getting that degree and when it comes to her personally. I can hear it now find somebody else because she does not want to do it anymore.LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think she does things just to say she did it, but she genuiely has no interest or care in them what so ever, she just wants to say she did so and so or add to her belt.
JUL 24 • For months now, it has been rumoured that Dancia will be on the VIP's ticket - why is it that only now they can find it possible to announce her candidacy?

Is this just one more plot in their sick web of deceit? Why do they always have to play the people for fools? Why couldn't they have confirmed the rumours a long time ago? I'm sure it's not just last night they decided on it since her launch IS tonight.

If I were in her district, I would not vote for her, because this strategy that she/VIP came with (announcing her at the 11th hour like she is some kind of goddess), seems very tacky to me.

I only hope for her sake, that she doesn't get a rude awakening up in the East.
JUL 24 • It is obvious Dancia only want power. As I heard she would not make the decision unless they give her the premiership in writing. So she must have it now. She would never have done this without the power position as thats how she is. So the race is on on team VIP for the premiership.

But East done say tell her come, she gon get some licks.

JUL 24 • I guess that is why they got rid of Mr. Wheathley, that is exactly how he would have been regarded if they won anyway a means to a cause. What he need to do now is get them back by turning him and his cast aside supporters votes against them. They feel Dancia name is going to carry her, but they don't know the through nature of the East.
JUL 24 • I guess when VIP was in power you all could not complain about begging because that is exactly what you all where doing, out begging looking hand out, because of a weak economy and the straight pathetic handouts instead of getting you lazy .. up and making something of yourselves from expecting the government to hand you everything. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please
JUL 24 • Give me a break, I wish I this was uncensored. She QUIT being YOUR attorney general, she QUIT being your deputy governor, ..and my dealings with her on a professional level tells me nothing is blinking upstairs. 8th district, if it ain’t the Hon. Black, a proven man, know this for sure, she will defiantly QUIT on YOU. Be smart, who needs quitters, Black is your only hope.
JUL 24 • People think, what intense negotiations, what is Dancia negotiating for! Are we now up for negotiations, Let them tell you what position she is promised. A set of confusing poeple that's the VIP. People be careful, think about your country's future and not be swayed by another propaganda trick. She she is educated but ner loyal the only loyalty eh has is for herself, nobody else.
Good one, Ralph.
JUL 24 • Lawdy, I must agree with you...old Ralph still has some tricks left. This is stroke of genius if he got Dancia by promising her the leadership when he is gone.

In spite of what others say, Frazer cannot intimidate or bully this woman.

You gotta watch the people's man though. He has stated before he will not work for a woman. Also, he might have to find something else to eat instead of cookies.

Alvin is probably a question mark now. No more shady construction deals for him.

All this is assuming Dancia's influence is enough to bring the VIP in from the cold.
JUL 24 • And what is all the talk about crazy people anyway? They did not just spring up in eight years been there before Black. They were there with VIP for years but I guessed you all loved them that's why you said nothing and lived with it for that long. But you want to turn now and put that on Black like he brought them? Please they are the product of the VIP Era left behind and neglected eventually to be corrected by NDP soon enough. You people are something else every problem you bring up has been there for years untouched by the VIP for YEARSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! But you want to say that Black has not changed it in his term. Why didn't VIP change all these issues in their's. Now you want a man to make all those changes in his short tenure one of which was in the oppposition where you cannot get Jack Done. When VIP was in power four years ago why didn't you tell them you tied of people begging.
Hmmm
JUL 24 • What Ayanna do you all. She thief from you all or something. I am from Purcell and we don't hate Ayanna. Stop trying to spread rumours. There are jealous people all over and those are the only ones who have issues with her.

Ayanna does be right in Purcell, I does see her with my own two eyes when I passing some times there sitting down on Irma Connor porch. YOu all just like to gossip. People from that district so proud of how that young lady has developed. You all want her walk with her head down and jealous because she aint no knock about. Thats why you keep referring to her being from Purcell because to you she should be inferior.

I for one would like to see her run, but I understand she is happy in her career. So stop telling lies on Purcell people please.
JUL 24 • Just looking at Dancia's history she seems power crazy. VIP better be prepared to pony that Chief position to keep her cause she will certainly jump ship if she does not get her way, it has nothing to do with her political beliefs, only who will give her whatever she wants. So please spare the BS about what Black done for crazy people in the East.
JUL 24 • Some people are just stupid. As much money as she has. Do you think that she personally can take care of the crazy people in East End? That is the government responsiblity. She will surely go broke in a day.
Ms. G
JUL 24 • No matter how VIP try and push and change around the candidates, NDP WINNING THIS ELECTION!!!

Its going to be close, but NDP WINNING! Just watch and see. Trust me I intend to make my vote count- NDP ALL THE WAY!
JUL 24 • Well aleast we know now why VIP threw Douglas Wheathley and his supporters to the side of the road like garbage. They are on to bigger things. I hope he sees that this is exactly how he would have been treated when they had finishing using him. Just cast aside as a means to their ends. But if I were the Wheathley family I would cut their throat by putting my supporters to vote for Black.LOL!!!!! Don't be shocked people..........This is the East we talking bout.
JUL 24 • Who in their right mind could say that Smith is an effective leader? He even could not manage the hospital. People really stupid. He talks like he got hot potato in his mouth.
JUL 24 • NDP have no fear, stay confident, Dancia just like the rest just want power, every position she held in this country, she gave up because she always wants her own way, no matter how big someone thinks they are there is a boss above you, she does not know that. She was the Attorney General in the VIP Admin, what she did, left it high and dry, says she is going into private practice, leave that again, Deputy Governor, fool the good people of the Eastern Caribbean Court of Appeal and now looking Pemiership. No stability, the VIP think they are on top now with her, we shall see. Good Luck
Win Loose or draw. She does not make a difference VIP is only interested in the power and she is one good power broker, so lets wait on the confusion.
JUL 24 • WELL NO FIGHT FOR THE NDP FOR CHIEF EITHER ORLANDO OR RONNIE BECAUSE NOONE ELSE QUALIFIED. REALLY IF U LOOK AT IT. VIP HAS MORE QUALIFIED CANDIDATES.
JUL 24 • Rat let me give you a big peace of CHEESE. Do you really think that Skelton is going to sit under Smith this time around with out trying to be the first Premier.
JUL 24 • lawd i was this close in voting for black again. He aint do me no curry favor but i voted for him twice..TWICE TO MANY..times up..
Happy Day !
JUL 24 • Happy day...Happy day...when they sent Dancia our way..!!
We are really foolish
JUL 24 • You all really think that Dancia will beat Lloyd. I am so embarrassed that she will associate herself with VIP. Power will make some people doing anything it appears.

But here is the drama. The VIP now have five people vying for chief minister, Ralph, Alvin, Andrew, Julian and now Dancia. That party will not form a Government and now Alvin's position is now unclear so he will be shifting his position somewhat. And Omar, don't think he will sit there in all this and not do anything. It may still have more shifting yet.

But Dancia, I am very surprised that power will make you align yourself like this.
I alwasys admire this Iron Lady
JUL 24 • Mrs. Dancia Salllah might not know me by name, but she is one of the few women of the BR.V.Is I always have great admiration and respect for. I know that she will do a great job for the people of this nation.
hmmm
JUL 24 • Ayanana is the 6th district. HELL NO!!!!!!!!!! Beside she dont self mingle with Purcell people, and we know that. It dont make no sense puttin her up there cause she would be the weakess link
JUL 24 • tRUST ME Ayana aint that DUMB to run in the 6th district she know she aint going to win because noone up there like her. so i beg she go sit down..and u shut your mouth. lol that was the joke of the day
JUL 24 • don't be fool people of the 8th District. They would make you believe that she will get first Premier, but after election, you will see it will change. VIP can't be trusted. If she is First Premier what will Fraser, Fahie and the famous Christopher get. Think about it. Alvin better watch out. They may get rid of you now that Ms. Penn is on Board. This is hot. Huggies, pampers watch out, they coming for you next.
JUL 24 • NDP SUPPORTERS DONT LET THIS WOMAN FOOL YOU WE HAVE THE BEST AT-LARGE TEAM AND I STILL VOTING FOR BLACK.
Bam
JUL 24 • Chief Doc, we want Ayanna in the 6th District race….please…..balance your team out with another woman. Since the VIP come so good….who’s house you in trying to persuade don’t have any weight against the people’s man….bring it on with that young lawyer or your team might as well start sending out applications.
JUL 24 • I AM REALLY DISAPPOINTED IN DANCIA SHE SUPRISE ME SHE IS LOW LOW LOW TO ASSOCIATE HERSELF WITH THOSE HYPOCRITS.
JUL 24 • Rat, are you one of the VIP's congress members? If not, shut up. Stop spreading propaganda. The VIP will run the country for the next four years whether you like or not.
JUL 24 • that is to show the set of strong candidates the VIP has this election all of them can run this country. sorry NDP your time is officially UP! BAM VIP ALL THE WAY
J
JUL 24 • Congratulations to the VIP for choosing such a strong candidate. How it go look; the BVI is soon to have the first female chief minister. Do your thing Dancia.
Rat
JUL 24 • This does not change my mind about the NDP. I have seen what they have done for this country and I believe they can do alot more so they still have my vote. It will be amazing to see who will be fighting for PREMIERE on the VIP team. Ralphie not giving up no matter what; Fraser done acting like he is it; Andrew want it so bad he can taste it; Christopher not moving until he get it and now the people want Dancia to have it. What a ting!!! August 20th please hurry up.
VIP GROUPIE
JUL 24 • dont know about you. but you cut me tis green and white i bleed. VIP ALLLL THEY WAY
BVI WAKEUPbviwakeup@yahoo.com

As we know she was the Deputy Governor so there is alot she knows that was going wrong within the NDP Government so people open ur eys and ears. NDP need to tell de people how they try their best to keep her out politics because they know she would be ah major threat to them..................I rallying round Dancia Penn and Team VIP ALLLLLLLL DE WAYYYYYY!!!!!!
Time
JUL 24 • Ms Penn is human just like all the other political candidates on both sides.

To say that she would be able to straighten out Mr Frazer etc, is really, really STUPID.

She has a flaws too and they will be REVEALED in time. As my grandma says...."Time reveals all" God is time and only He knows what's in the heart.

She may or may not disappoint the people in the 8th District as time moves along. However, my million dollar question to allof you...Does she know what is the TRUE meaning of "LOYALTY".

So please don't be too quick and get so excited BECAUSE all of you may think that she is educated etc. Is that enough?

I must warn you that in 2003, all of the 8th district was excited about Hon. Llody Black and today you all want him remove.

So my dear Chris, just take a little time to digest what I have to say before you reply with out Wisdom.

Smile, because in 2011, I might hear that HISTORY is repeating itself. You all want her out TOO, because she has not done anything either for the 8th
District.

I dont want to know all about what she plans to do, but can we TRUST her and will she be truly LOYAL to the people of the 8th District?

Have a blessed day.
What a Thing
JUL 24 • All I going to say.....BAM!
JUL 24 • Praise be to God Hallelujah... VIP lets look forward not backward we are now even more strengtened... Thank you immensely Dancia... as I for one didn't have any choice in the 8 as I didnt want Black but who else was there for me to put in... Black pack your bags... the train gone leave you!
Hip Hip Hooray
JUL 24 • Well I am so happy to hear that Mrs. Dancia Penn-Sallah is running for the position in the 8th. I don't live in the 8th but I have heard their cry. I will definitely be in the East tonight. VIP ALLLLLLLLLLLL the Wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
Things Hot Up East!
JUL 24 • Dancia decision made this whole election more interesting. NDP has to do some real strategising to overcome this hurdle. Just imagine when she hit the campaign trail only then all hell will break loose. Want to see Kedric, Mark (who has no values or creditability) Orlando, and others try to discredit her. Wish them well because she can confirm what Alvin and others are saying. My advice will not to take that road. We done know the truth. This is an honourable woman who just raised the bar of leadership in the BVI and the Caribbean in general.
Help is on the way!
JUL 24 • We getting rid of black because of how he neglected us during his term in office
1. Ignore the people wishes on the Beef Island Project
2. Delayed the sewerage project
3. Stopped the Hawk’s Nest Road
4. Failed to complete the distribution of Steven’s Land
5. Failed to put in the infrastructure at Steven’s Land
6. Took years to complete the renovation of the East End Park
7. Failed to complete renovation of Greenland Field
8. Took years to fix the Trellis Bay Jetty
9. No suitable facility for the Fishermen
10. Ignored the people wishes and rights for the East End water front development project
11. No side walks
12. No expansion, renovation, or new staff room for the teachers at WWPS
13. Ignore Hope Hill area completely
14. No reliable water supply
15. Finally, disrespect the living and dead by running sewerage through our sacred grave yard. Tell me if he should not been fired a long time ago. Make us proud Dancia.
JUL 24 • Go Dancia go. Now its, VIP ALL the way. Good choice VIP, we really needed a strong woman to be in this Party and I am so happy for the 8th District. Yea, put BLACK in the back, where he belongs.
8th district voter
JUL 24 • Lawdy, the things start now. Want to hear about a reputable woman, is Dancia. Definately you my family and I vote for sure.
JUL 24 • TIME, is it really necessary to invoke scripture in this matter? Sometimes I wonder........................
TIME UP!
JUL 24 • BLACK YOUR TIME IS UP. WE GOING WITH DANCIA.
JUL 24 • Yeah why Douglas and Lloyd Wheatley don't step aside. From what I hearing Dancia is the person to beat.
JUL 24 • Douglas Wheatley - support Dancia, let's put all our efforts in one place!
JUL 24 • Good luck Mrs. Penn-Sallah. Good Luck! It's about time a woman takes control in the East. We need strong and honest leadership in these parts. You are the best choice. Good luck!
Lawdy Lawdy
JUL 24 • Well, well, well! I can't think of nothin else make me happier! Dem boys in NDP better start packing dem boxes up!

Dis de best news we hear in ages! Ms. Penn-Sallah maybe going to be our new Premier some day! Woohoo! She definitely got my vote!

Dis lady is one smart cookie and she won't let dem boys, (Andrew and that other one whos name should not be mentioned in polite circles) push she around neither. Ralph O'Neal still got some tricks up he sleeve. Boy I tellin you!

Thank you Ms. Penn-Sallah for stepping up and breathing new life into the VIP. And thank you Mr. O'Neal for recognizing the need to put our fears at rest. I were real worried about who would replace you as Premier if you step down.

Now we really got us a horse race meh son!
Time
JUL 24 • Happy to see Ms Penn is running, but lets not forget that we are not looking for the people's choice, we as a christian society wants GOD's choice. What we all need to do is to start praying for God's choice in this matter......Check your Bible and read 1 Samuel. There we will all gain WISDOM.
JUL 24 • I was talking to my DNP friend last night and she was wondering how the VIP pulled it off after believing Dancia supported the NDP the last time. At least she defended them court. School children say when she find out what they were about she was shock and couldn't believe it. Like Comwell, yes ayo remember him, he too had to part with them. Check and see how many people run from them. She was wise enough to leave them and come back home. The east is dancing right now.
JUL 24 • Dancia it is not just the 8 loves you, we love you up Virgin Gorda to. My phone ringing off the hook all week about you running and my family was praying for you. All is going to be well.
JUL 24 • Where in Parhamtown do we go? We going to look for the crowd.
Look Here!
JUL 24 • I THOUGHT ALVIN BOM SHELL KILLED THE NDP BUT CONVIENCING DANCIA TO RUN IN THE 8 GOING TO FINISH THEM OFF. THINGS GETTING BETTER AT THE LAST MINUTE. NDP WHO YOU BRINGING IN THE 6 TO OFF SET THIS.
JUL 24 • Tonight I coming up east to give my support. Going to be my first time attending a political rally. Our family are excited for Mrs. Penn. I am not a voter of the 8 but have lots of friends who I am going to encourage. Plus it is great another woman joining the politics. Thinking about it she will be a great leader but let us not think about that right now.
East Rocks!
